The famous racer will try to accelerate to 1600 km / h in a rocket car

Interestingly, this will not be the first attempt by an Australian driver to break the sound barrier. As CarAdvice writes, back in 1994, he already tried to do this using his own rocket car – 5R. True, then he managed to achieve a speed of only 802,5 km / h.

And so in 2022, McGlashan intends to repeat the attempt, and this time his goal is to break the world record – 1223 km / h. To do this, the rider will use a new development called the Aussie Invader 5R.

The vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 1,1 seconds. The speed of 1610 km / h will “succumb” to the rocket car in 22 seconds.
