ThrustSSC - The Story To Date

ThrustSSC on the Black Rock Desert

The World Land Speed Record is a living story - no-one knows if or how it will end. For over two years we have related ThrustSSC's progress on the Internet - in that time the accesses have grown from some 3000 a day, to well over 3 million. Many people have joined the readership in that time, and have not had the pleasure of finding out how it all began, or of following progress day by day as we struggled to build and develop the world's fastest ever car. This is that story, as told through these pages.
