If any speed enthusiast is following Bloodhounds testing here is Andy Green comments on his 628mph terminal speed run.

Hopefully next year will be the record attempt with the additional rocket assist attached.

Has been very interesting following Bloodhound testing some of the issues found was a vibration sensor set too fine when going over a track on the desert that shut the engine down,

Braking parachute , air brakes and normal brakes being checked and sometimes modified.

A hot wire sensor system shutting the turbine down when engine and chassis got too hot.

Part of the rear wheel outrigger streamlining coming adrift.

Also finding various stability things at speed.

Being tested in a very hot climate raised issues with control systems which they did not get in the cooler UK.

It seems they were very minor problems which the team overcome.

Just waiting for the official record attempts with the rocket assist engaged a fantastic bit of engineering.
