My favourite attraction at the Goodwood Festival of Speed so far? It has to be the display of land speed record vehicles.

A large area of the festival, near the Moving Motor Show, has been converted into a replica of the Daytona Beach course, home to numerous land speed record attempts over the years. There are iconic cars from past, present and even future on display - The Blue Flame, Bloodhound and Sir Malcolm Campbell's Bluebird are just some of the attractions.

Bloodhound, which has already completed its first rocket tests, aims to break the current land speedrecord of 763mph in South Africa later this year. It then plans to break 1000mph in 2014. The car sits in its own tent to one side of the display, surrounded by technical information and full-size displays of the 18-inch hybrid rocket that will fire the Bloodhound towards its target. 

The 763mph current record was set by British driver Andy Green in Thrust SSC back in 1997. Green broke his own record on the USA-based run, beating his previous speed of 713mph.

The next model in the display is Richard Brown's Gillette Mach 3 Challenger, a hydrogen-peroxide rocket-powered motorcycle that ran at 332.887mph at the Bonneville salt flats in Utah in 1999. Brown acheived the speed using two of its three rockets, and all despite the soft conditions.
