Hey Ross

After chatting the other day about Gary Gabelich and the Blue Flame I went to the newsagent and bought a copy of Octane which strangely enough had a small article on.... the Blue Flame!

I might scan it for you..... maybe

Looking at the Sydney Morning Herald online today and found this:

http://media.smh.com.au/drive/car-news/ ... om=newsbox

It's a bit of news on the Bloodhound but has some good simulations in it.

Recent NEWS from the Bloodhound SSC project.

Andy Green news post:
I’ve just been to inspect the work on Hakskeen Pan, in the Northern Cape, where we’ll be running BLOODHOUND SSC next year, as we test and develop the Car up to our astonishing target of 1000 mph. The scale of the work required to prepare this surface is truly vast.

The Car will need to do a number of test runs, so our Main Track is 500 m wide, to give us multiple lanes to run on (each time the Car runs on the hard soil surface, its metal wheel cut ruts, so each lane is one-use-only). The Track is 12 miles (19 km) long – which is just long enough to accelerate to 1000 mph, then stop again before the desert ends. This process will only take 2 minutes, from setting off to coming to a halt 12 miles away

Here's a link to Artist Stefan Marjoram's page on Vimeo. Good to see his caliber of talent and passion dedicated to documenting the Bloodhound project. There's a fantastic six minute piece on Thrust2 with Richard Noble stirring emotions with in the drivers-seat stories of the project and record attempts.
