The BBC has done a great in depth report on the progress of the Bloodhound project. Explaining some of the test decisions that have been made as we approach the cars first trials. Desribing the project as Bloodhound “The Real Deal” the description goes on to say;
A British team is developing a car that will be capable of reaching 1,000mph (1,610km/h). Powered by a rocket bolted to a Eurofighter-Typhoon jet engine, the vehicle will first mount an assault on the world land speed record (763mph; 1,228km/h). Bloodhound will be run on Hakskeen Pan in Northern Cape, South Africa, in 2016.
Take a look around the car, the engineering and the cockpit. The car moves to South Africa in 2016
