It's absolutely terrific that the Bloodhound team have reached the point of running the car. A tribute to the sheer tenacity of Richard & Co.

History's been made, and it will only get more exciting from here.

Such a shame, they seemed so close too, well apart from needing 25m to get it over the line. Sorry but cant see it happening now

25 Million? That the debts they have built up? How on earth can they need 25 million overwise. Richard Noble has been known to have failures of course as well as the Thrust projects.

Had to laugh at the selling. It costs less than finishing last in F1 or the Americas Cup. Just think of all those unfortunate folk out there not wishing to risk their 25 million quid for fear of coming last.
