Bloodhound SSC (Super Sonic Car) is the name of a project aiming to break the land speed record with a pencil-shaped car powered by a jet engine and a rocket designed to reach approximately 1,000 miles per hour. It is being developed and built with the intention of breaking the land speed record by the largest ever margin. Andy Green will be the pilot of Bloodhound SCC and is the current holder of the World Land speed record. He will introduce us to the progresses in the production of Super Sonic car and the engineering behind. Green studied Mathematics at Oxford, was Royal Air Force pilot and ran the Harrier airfield at Royal Air Force Wittering including a spell as the Commander of the Royal Air Force detachment in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
