The ThrustSSC Team are completing preparations for a return to Jordan to continue high-speed testing of ThrustSSC.
The very latest status of ThrustSSC can be seen through the Microplex Web Camera in the workshop in P8R Shed, DRA, Farnborough:

The Team are in good shape and looking forward to their return to Jordan!
The Jafr Desert, Jordan, has dried well after the winter floods and is now usable. The surface is generally better than 1996, with less repair work required to the Bedouin crossing tracks. Hardness is currently 14 or better on the California Bearing Ratio scale.
The tracks require surveying, marking and preparation.
Negotiations with the Bureau of Land Management are underway for the operating permit for this autumn's head-to-head with Craig Breedlove and the Spirit of America.
Being prepared for Jordan.
The Duck is out there - have you found it, yet?
You can follow the progress of work on the car in the Web Camera photograph above.
Please check our Runs Database for the very latest information on the progress of ThrustSSC - the database is always updated as soon as possible after the car runs - and always before any report is written and published.
