Avon Tyres is sponsoring the Bloodhound Project by supplying tires for the supersonic car, which is designed to go faster than the speed of sound.
This will include tires suitable for desert use for the car’s support vehicles as well as tires for runway testing of the land speed record car.
Fans had the opportunity to watch Bloodhound SSC in action at public tests held last October, in Newquay in the UK. This followed driver Andy Green’s first 200mph attempt run at Cornwall Airport Newquay.
The Bloodhound Project is progressing toward a faster desert test later this year, as the next step in breaking the World Land Speed Record in 2019 and then pushing on to 1,000mph (1600km/h).
