Bloodhound SSC rocket car will try break 1000 MPH – who cares?

Listen, I’m not questioning the kahonas of these British chaps trying to break 1000 MPH on land. Hell no, but with a $16 million dollar backing from the British Science Minister and a hybrid rocket/jet propulsion, they had better go that fast. A Eurojet EJ200 fighter jet engine should get the ‘car’ up to 300 MPH where a rocket will hopefully boost the speed over the 1k mark. Great for them, but wake me up when someone does it with wheel and drive shaft system. Now that will be news.
