Bloodhound Project: How you can take part in a world record attempt for the fastest rocket-powered model car
The team behind the Bloodhound Supersonic Car, are aiming to set a new land speed record by reaching an incredible 1609km/h (1,000mph) or Mach 1.3 when the vehicle blasts down a South African desert race track in 2016.
To encourage and motivate the next generation of scientists and engineers, Guinness World Records and the Bloodhound Challenge is inviting teams from around the world to take part in an international record-breaking challenge with the aim of achieving a prestigious Guinness World Records title for the Fastest Rocket-Powered Model Car, inspired by the Bloodhound Project.
Entrants will need to design and build a self-powered model car or truck that must be propelled by a rocket engine and therefore cannot be controlled from a distance using a remote control.
