Just been to a talk at Lloyds of London (at the internationally-renowned Lloyd’s building in Lime Street)
The subject was Risk Management at 1000mph - an excuse to listen to Andy Green, the former Royal Air Force fighter pilot and Wing Commander who was the driver of Richard Noble's Thrust SSC when it broke the World Land Speed Record on 15 October 1997 in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, United States. He achieved a speed of 1,228 km/h (763 mph) and Thrust SSC became the first car to officially break the sound barrier.
His new project is Bloodhound SSC, a venture with Richard Noble to attempt a 1,000 mph world land speed record.
The full sized replica BLOODHOUND SSC was on display outside the building.
He was an extreemly good speaker who describe the challenges particularly how risk is being managed throughout the lifecycle of the project. http://www.bloodhoundssc.com/
