Bloodhound car: A month to save land speed record project

The UK-led bid to break the world land speed record is under threat once more.
Ian Warhurst, who owns the Bloodhound car that's been built to go beyond 800mph (1,290km/h), says new money must come into the project this month or it will be wound up.
Bloodhound clocked 628mph (1,010km/h) in trials last year while powered only by a jet engine.
With the addition of a rocket, the vehicle should easily beat the existing world record of 763mph (1,228km/h).
That won't happen, though, says the Yorkshire businessman, unless the financing is there to support it.
