Just over a week ago I was heading through the centre of Sheffield when I noticed a marque had been erected at the top of Fargate (the pedestrianized shopping precinct). Given that it wasn't a market day I was a little intrigued. It turned out that the full scale model of Bloodhound SSC was on display for the day. Unfortunately I was in a rush to get to work so I only really had time to have a quick look and take a single photo.
Bloodhound SSC is being built by the same team behind the current land speed record holder Thrust SSC. Building of the actual car is underway with a plan in place to break the current world record of 763mph next year, and then move on to trying to break the 1000mph mark in 2014 at which point it will be traveling faster than a speeding bullet.
