Bloodhound Land Speed Record team looking at biofuel rather than jet fuel

February 3, 2020 |

In the UK, the Bloodhound Land Speed Record (LSR) team confirmed plans to challenge for the world land speed record using a zero-emissions rocket. Powered by concentrated hydrogen peroxide, the rocket will be used alongside the world’s best jet-fighter engine when the Bloodhound LSR car attempts to reach speeds beyond 800mph in South Africa in the third quarter of 2021. The Bloodhound team is also exploring the possibility of running the Rolls-Royce EJ200 jet engine on biofuel instead of Jet A fuel, further reducing the environmental impact of operating the car.
