Runway Testing

The car has now completed 6 dynamic runs. Pictured here at Thorney Island the car is accelerating with full throttle. No steam is exiting via the by pass pipes; all spent steam is coming from the turbine.

The team were able to practice turning the car around, refuelling and starting the car against the clock.
The cold conditions did not make conditions easy for the car or the crew and we have decided that this probably as far as we can go with winter testing.

The car awaits recovery at the end of a run.

Suspension Set Up
The car is back in the warm, dry, workshop and we are inspecting the suspension after its shake down, under full load conditions. This is the first opportunity we have had to use our corner weight and suspension set up kit.


Winter Program
The car is being ‘hibernated’ for the winter months.
The boilers have been drained. The core team are inspecting and servicing the car and ancillary equipment.
