The British team planning to break the speed record on land again has problems. An attempt to beat him with a vehicle called Bloodhound was once again postponed. This time it was moved to summer next year.
The British Bloodhound SSC, whose goal is to break the speed record on land, has again problems that have caused a further shift in the date of the event. Despite the injection of money from the Chinese corporation, Zhejiang Geely Holding Group still has insufficient funds to carry out the test.
Team leader Richard Noble explained that the team is still waiting for a transfer from a global IT and fashion brand. Funds are needed to increase the power of the engine, as it turned out that the weight of the vehicle is much larger than originally assumed. The vehicle called Bloodhound is powered by the Rolls-Royce EJ200 jet engine, which should accelerate to 1228 km / h.
