Other airport news : car hire UK available from Newquay Airport in Cornwall

The runway at the Cornish airport is too short for the car to reach the high speeds required to break the record. The engineers will conduct a number of small trials in order to get the car ready for next year.

The team are heading out to South Africa to try and beat the record of 763 MPH. Two goals are being set : the first which will be 800 MPH and the second which will be 1000 MPH.

We wish the team luck and success.
