What is the Fastest Land Speed Record?
On the 15th October, 1997, the fastest land speed record was 763 mph / 1228 km/h! This speed was set by an RAF Pilot named Andy Green. This speed test took place in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, America. British driver and pilot, Andy Green, was the first man to break the sound barrier in a land vehicle which meant that it moved from transonic to supersonic speed - exceeding the speed of sound! (The sound barrier record had already been achieved by a land vehicle in 1948, however, it had been unmanned). The vehicle to break this fast land speed record was a ThrustSSC. SSC stands for Super Sonic Car. The Thrust SSC was developed by Richard Noble and it's a British jet-propelled car. The same engine had been used in the British version of the F-4 Phantom II jet fighter. It had two afterburning Rolls-Royce Spey turbofan engines.
