The UK-based team chasing a new world land-speed record will send its Bloodhound supersonic car to South Africa in October, the project has confirmed.

Following the Bloodhound’s successful 320 km/h runway trial at Cornwall Airport Newquay, in the UK, in October last year, the team will be targeting 800 km/h as the next milestone in its attempt to break the current land-speed record of 1 227.98 km/h set in 1997. The ultimate hope is to reach 1 000 mph, or 1 609 km/h.
