Do you want know what is the fastest car on earth? Let introduce you the Bloodhound. Maybe you say, its not a car, it’s a jet. The answer is yes that is a car which has a jet on its backpack. Bloodhound started its efforts for bricking the record of from 2019. But till now different problems, did let them to sign a speed in supersonic range on earth.
The team of Bloodhound LSR’s faced a number of hard condition (internal ones and external). Financial problems from one side to the quitting the current owner and chief executive of the team. It was planned to see this monster passes 800-mph speed in 2020. But unfortunately, the new Corona-Virus didn’t let the team break the sound barrier. The latest record goes back to 1997 with 763.035 mph velocity set by Thrusts SC.
Warhurst had set almost everything in 2019, but the Pandemic changed everything. As he says:
Along with many other things, the global pandemic wrecked this opportunity in 2020 which has left the project unfunded and delayed by a further 12 months. At this stage, in absence of further, immediate, funding, the only options remaining are to close down the program or put the project up for sale to allow me to pass on the baton and allow the team to continue the project
In 2019, LSR had successfully passed a series of tests in south Africa, and this vehicle hit 628 mph. for having more speed, a rocket booster is needed. Don’t forget the supersonic regime. Having the aimed speed needs just $10.9 million, based on costs of the program thus far. Now as there is no financial support, if the new owner couldn’t spend this amount of money, LSR would stay in storage warehouse for a long time.
Bloodhound don’t have much time. To participate in the record of 2022, final vehicle preparations and planning need to begin in the next few months. Hope that Bloodhounds comes back and hit the speed of 1,000 mph.
