Ouch! I suspect there'll be lots of jokes about him only being able to drive in straight lines, lots of nice extra free publicity, and a replacement car from Jaguar. Here's the crash-

Fantastic machine!

Did anyone but me see Seb Vettel at the weekend being shown a picture of it and saying, 'That's ugly, I wouldn't like to to 1000mph in that!'

I had to chuckle - I'd imagine a few people being most indignant at that remark but it was typical, off the cuff Vettel

Andy Green's latest diary is quite the read...it makes K7's cockpit seem even more antiquated than ever!

An extraordinary achievement to get this far. Incredible. Especially in today's climate, with sponsorship budgets being cut across the board.

It's only a matter of time until that 1997 record falls.

Completely understandable. Even building that machine is an amazing achievement and I can't imagine how much work is going on behind the scenes to get it running in anger. It's frantic enough trying to get a little tin boat back into working order!
I've every faith that Richard will pull it off.

Good news that the final sponsorship/partnership deals seem to be in place and the Team can finally press on towards the attempt. I wish them every good fortune.

A great piece of British engineering and in the true spirit of Donald Campbell who was proposing his own 800 mph plus attempts 50 years ago!
