33rd Anniversary of the Thrust 2’s Land Speed Record is October 4th

Thrust2-2

Tomorrow marks the 33rd anniversary of Richard Noble’s historic 633 mph land speed record setting run at the Black Rock desert in Nevada.

The vehicle pictured above is the Thrust2, powered by a Rolls Royce jet engine.

That record held up until Sept 1997 when it was broken by Andy Green in the Thrust SSC. That particular race team was managed by Richard Noble also.

Happy Anniversary to SPEED!
