Now you can see TrickyDicky why the US racers mostly consider the FIA as being an F1 organisation headed by Bernie - with no interest in LSR.

Shows me, that changing one word in part of your rules can have a massive knock on effect. [Vehicles now = automobiles].

Since we're being pedantic, the FIA is currently headed by Jean Todt and formerly by Max Mosley, who some think was merely Mr. E's puppet in the role.

This is an in-depth article about the Haskeen Pan surface and the car's suspension.  Some of this might apply to Bonneville.  www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-34200629

Stay tuned for lots of BLOODHOUND SSC pictures as the real car in 'cutaway' form has gone on show in London for a few days.

  New picture and short article on Drag Racing Online (Agent 1320).  I don't know how to post pictures so maybe Mike or someone else can do the deed...

Two more articles on the bloodhound.  One is about how they start the vehicle.  It is a big project to light up the engine.

Agreed. At 1,400 + feet per second...The ol`  barn door/horse analogy comes to mind.
