Richard Noble, OBE will be talking you through his own personal World Land Speed Record story. Starting with his experiences as a driver and his success in setting a World Land Speed Record of 633mph in Thrust II in 1983, he will continue with his experiences as Project Director, working with driver Wing Commander Andy Green, OBE, to achieve the record of 763mph in Thrust SSC.
Having covered his past and current records Richard will look to the future, taking you through his plans for Bloodhound SSC, again working with Andy Green on an international education initiative designed to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists by designing and racing the ultimate 1,000mph jet and rocket powered car.
There will be an opportunity for guests to ask Richard questions in a Q&A session after his talk.
The evening, starting at 7.30pm, will be held in the Lecture Theatre of the National Motor Museum Collections’ Centre. A pay bar is available for the purchase of beers, wines and soft drinks.
