Vanishing Point in the snow so I guess it could be any UK summer.

Cheers

The last of Sammy's cars that I recall seeing. This would be about 1994-5 I guess since he'd announced his revised lsr intentions after the launch of ThrustSSC. This car used mixed jet/rocket power to test his theories for the actual lsr car. Think it only ever ran at Santa Pod using the jet. What happened to this car then? btw - BloodhoundSSC is of course using same concept.

Cheers

I think the pictures taken in the snow were at a Easter meet but can't remember the year, I do remember waking up in the snow though :shock:
The jet Sammy ran we have a thread on below, thanks for posting.
