Bloodhound SSC 1000 mph rocket car, land speed record attempt
Equinox Graphics is proud to present the visualisation of Bloodhound SSC,
the trans-sonic rocket car aiming to smash the current land speed record
and raise it to a mind-bending 1000 mph (Mach 1.4). The car is being
designed and built in Britain, and Equinox Graphics has had the privilege
of working in association with the design team to bring the car to life.
The minute-long viral video was produced on time and at High Definition
(1920x1080, 25fps, full GI/radiosity) in just three weeks - including
rendering time on our computer cluster.
The animation has proved extremely popular with the world's media, and has
proved to be the ideal medium for engaging the public's imagination. It has
so far been featured on BBC news (TV and online), and on stations as
diverse as CNN and Al Jazeera.

Land Speed Record Turbinator's Fastest Run 470 mph
August 2001, during the Speed Week trials on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Don
Vesco set the fastest one way time for a wheel driven car ever at an
amazing 470 mph. Don's "Turbinator" was powered by a stock 3750 hp T55 turboshaft engine. Don was forced to shut
down at 470 due to the short, 5 mile course, even though he was not
throttled up all the way. He returned in Oct. to officially establish the
F.I.A. absolute wheel driven record at 458.440.
