How to drive at 628mph | …

Going 1,000mph isn’t easy. But that’s exactly what the Bloodhound project wants to do. In order to do so you need a few things; a rather special car, a Rolls-Royce EJ200 jet and a rocket. Oh, and a rather brave person to sit behind the wheel. So strap your brain in as Top Gear magazine’s Ollie Marriage speaks to Andy Green about what it’s like to do 628mph – and how this car will try and hit 1,000. Be warned: there’s talk of yaw, static roll margins and what it’s like to drift a supersonic car.
