1,000mph car goes into administration


The project to race a car at over 1,000mph has run into a financial roadblock with the company behind the venture going into administration.

The team would then wait for another rain season to pass before returning to Hakskeen with the addition of a Nammo motor to raise the land speed record above 800mph, and then ultimately to over 1,000mph. The current plan is to run the car in the first instance in the region of 500-600mph (800-965km/h), using just the Eurofighter jet, to get a better sense of how the car behaves as it approaches the speed of sound.

“Some couples separate work and home, but for us it’s about integrating them and blending them and making sure our house is at least visually separate from work,” Pum says.

“I deal with color all day long; our work is so colorful that at home I want a clean palette,” says Pum, 43, a native of Thailand. (A recent short film produced for CityCenterDC featured Washington Ballet dancers dressed in dizzying neon suits and dresses.)
