Rocket for 1,000 mph car tested

A powerful rocket developed for a 1,000mph car called the Bloodhound is to be tested in Newquay, Cornwall.

The rocket engine is similar to the ones used in fighter jet typhoon planes.

The rocket will be attached to the ground and scientists will watch it being fired through a video feed.

It is being tested to make sure it is safe before it is put inside a car which will be used to try and break the land speed record of 763mph next year.
