Equinox Graphics is proud to present the visualisation of Bloodhound SSC,
the trans-sonic rocket car aiming to smash the current land speed record

so far been featured on BBC news (TV and online), and on stations as
diverse as CNN and Al Jazeera.

a loss of control, but in all likelyhood, the wind just changes ever so

nudged the cars nose off by just enough to start a flat spin.
Yes, a flat spin, like an airplane goes into!
No rudder on this vehicle, so no control!

speed record for a sub-1000kg electric vehicle.

We head to Elvington air field, a former NASA Space Shuttle landing site
with a two-mile long runway, to see if Lord Paul Drayson can break a record
which has stood for 39 years. Using a converted Le Mans racing car, he
plans to average more than 200mph and claim the title of fastest sub-1000kg

downforce, can he keep it from spinning out at triple-digit speeds?
