History Of The Land Speed Record

As the Bloodhound SSC goes into production to try and conquer the 1000mph mark as well as the land speed record (LSR) at the same time, we thought we'd take a walk down memory lane and check out some of the most significant cars to break the land speed record since records began.

In this piece, you'll discover the first car ever to record a land speed record all the way back in 1898, a LSR car named "The Easter Egg", the first ever internal combustion powered car to break the LSR, the first car that had part car part aeroplane engine and many others along the way.

We'll also take a look at the Bonneville Salt Flats and the Black Rock Desert, where the majority of these records were set as well as analysing why a turbo jet engine generates so much thrust?

All this and more are waiting for you as we introduce "0-1000mph – History Of The Land Speed Record"
