The land speed record team have Swansea science team on board.

The Bloodhound Land Speed Record team have Swansea scientists working on aspects of design,aerodynamics and the likely dangers of travelling across the ground at the anticipated speed of 1000 miles per hour. 

The existing record of 763 mph has stood since 1997. 

The new car will be powered by a Typhoon jet engine which will hopefully speed the car to the record books over a 12 mile course in the desert of South Africa at Hakskeen Pan in 2016.
