Andy Green (United Kingdom) is planning to shatter his current land speed record of like 750+mph with this new rocket and jet engine propelled vehicle. He's pretty sure he can go over 1000mph this time out . . . and they've cleared a track with a length of 14 miles in Africa to make a go of it. I suppose that open cockpit is where the driver sits with his head sticking out so he can see, with his leather racing cap and goggles on ?
