The Bloodhound Supersonic car will be showcased at Hakskeenpan

The Bloodhound Supersonic car is finally on African soil and will be showcased to local media at Hakskeenpan for the first time.

The car will be used too set a world land speed record of 1600 kilometres per hour - at the pan next year. This week the car will do its high-speed test of 800 kilometers per hour - with its driver Andy Green. The project has had its fair share of problems being hit by delays and almost folding, but last December, a British entrepreneur, Ian Warhurst, saved the project from bankruptcy.
They will attempt to break the land speed record, which currently stands at 763 mph.
