Aussie Invader - World Land Speed Record Challenger

Later this year David Warby will be going after the world water speed record. He is trying to up the record held by his father, Ken Warby, who has held it for Australia for over 40 years. We wish him all the best.

Aussie Invader - World Land Speed Record Challenger

Great to have a visit from Lieutenant Sal Malone who is a Seahawk chopper instructor for our Navy, based in Nowra NSW. Sal is very interested in our car, project and team and was in town to pay us a visit and check on the progress of our exciting mission. She looked at home in the driver's seat and had to be forcefully removed. I was fortunate to have Sal instruct me in a Seahawk simulator in Nowra a couple of months ago, and with her fine tuition, I was able to land a Seahawk on a moving ship! It was a fantastic experience. ... See MoreSee Less

Sign her up as the driver!

I'm glad she felt at home ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cool, she's in the right job then ๐Ÿ˜‰

Landing a seahawk on a moving ship...the same as riding a motorbike through traffic on one wheel I suspect!

I love the project Rossco and though I have only been a selfie supporter I like the way you present and inform us. I scratch my head how it can be so hard for you to raise the necessary support. Iโ€™ll bet that anyone that has had the privilege of sitting in that drivers seat would need forceful removal. Keep up the great work.

Be good to get the ADF to add some sponsorship, as they do in the US

Rosco is she going to be the driver for the womens record

Go Sal!

Excellent programme showing how it should be done. Well done Rosco, get that record!

Enjoyed it. Left me with a few questions (but I guess you have it all worked out).

This was a new (First) showing so will probably be repeated next week or the week after.

Great prog ..

Well worth a watch, looking forward to you firing her up and seeing how she goes...

Watched it. Was good to see you on the box here Rosco.

Such a stunning looking machine.

Showing again this Sunday.

An excellent programme Rosco! You have put so much hard work into it over the years! You deserve to get some serious MPH! We are going for 800-900mph this year with our own 'model' rocket car! youtu.be/ao00g35bfcQ

Joe Sherwood. One of interest for you

Just watched it , its very good but all hype and theoretical, I will be more impressed when it breaks a record. No point having 1000mph club on your car till its actually done it.

Don't have foxtel

Congratulations my friend! Weโ€™ll be watching and will post a reminder when we get closer.

Awesome looking vehicle. It's all up to you guys now. American eagle has gone, bloodhound has gone as well now. Just goes to show that simple always stays the course. Not saying your car is simple, of course it isn't but in comparison to bloodhound which is so so complicated under the skin. I think that was it's downfall, complexity equals dollars. No pressure now guys! Oh if you need a long course I know a place in South Africa that's ready to go ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Man, I want to see that fire up. Are you planning on USA or here at Lake Gairdner?

My team and I have been through many highs and lows in land speed record racing, people forget there is a human element to these projects. I am sure Andy, Richard and the team are hurting. This is perfectly summed up by a speech made by Theodore Roosevelt....

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

You are a warm and generous man Roscoe ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

The World's Fastest Indian is a 2005 film that tells the life story of New Zealander Burt Munro, who spent years re-building a 1920 Indian motorcycle โ€” a bike which helped him set the land-speed world record at Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats in 1967. Directed and written by Roger Donaldson.

Respect. Thanks Roscoe

Thanks - that's very kind, and very welcome.

If a Kiwi can do it an Aussie can too. Burt also quoted Theodore Roosevelt

Hi Rosco. Great words and meaningful indeed. We need people of your character and respect in this world. Wishing you and the crew a Safe and Happy Christmas and may the English crew find a supporter or two in the New Year. Cheers everyone.

Thank you Sir... we live to inspire!

Thanks Roscoe. Good luck with the car.

Well said Roscoe

A great quote too ๐Ÿ˜ข

Nice one, in sad circumstances...

Roscoe I hear bloodhound ssc is now for sale as well

Beautiful words Rosco. You know their struggle and all the highs and lows. Letโ€™s pray a light goes on somewhere and they can fire up again. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™

Wishing you the very best luck. I read an article last week from Richard noble. The bloodhound project has been wrapped up in politics and paperwork and promises from central government. I really hope the administrators can untangle the mess and enable the car to run, give you a contest!! If not I'll back you anyway.

Looking every bit the part! "Good luck!"

What a great shot.

Looks stunning!! Go guys!

Go to your Destiny Rosco! ๐Ÿ’™โค

I am devastated at the news. I had the privilege to see the car at its unveiling in London. That changed my life. It felt like history was about to be made. But then it went quiet for a long time. The car looked finished ! (it wasnt) Then they did the 200mph test runs at the airfield. The car looked less finished than when I saw it a year before. I thought something was wrong. All the time taking the car apart and refitting and refining. All this costs money. I honestly thought this was all accounted for and part if the planned progress. This is such a shock. Our government won't step in as they have bigger fish to fry. It's got to be crowd fund or major sponsorship. I would prefer crowd fund rather than some tit like Branson, swan in like he is the saviour and take the credit and kudos. Aussie invader has had its financial issues I know, and has survived. Publicity is the key. Positive publicity. Unfortunately not something the British media is very good at it seems. This needs to be a 2 horse race again, I think you will agree.

The Car is way to good for the Project to fail, it would be tragic to see ownership given over to someone else. What ever happens this car has the Technology and the power to break 800mph.

Well written

A fella a couple of weeks ago suggested conting Sir Richard Branson. Great idea. I wonder if anyone did?

They need a GoFundMe Page. Iโ€™ll kick some money in.

Thank you Rosco and the Aussie invader team โ€” sadly I fear that our Country no longer has the foresight to make Bloodhound a successful car and the project will whither away โ€” I bloody hope not though โœŠโœŠ

they have been overpromising and under delivering for years. I think sponsors got wise and have finally pulled the plug

Good luck blood hound landspeed

The thought of both being on the same strip at the same time would be amazing.

Unfortunately, the British public, apart from a scattering of a few die hards/normal people will blame brexit, the polish, the lituanians, the royal family, Yada Yada, plus "i only get ยฃ20k a year in benefits, how can I live?" Shame, but the place is fucked!

Many people have commented that Aussie Invader 5R looks a lot like The Blue Flame. We take that as a great complement, to be compared with Dick Keller's creation, driven by Gary Gabelich and its monumental achievement in 1970.In 1970, The Blue Flame became the world land speed record holder.

He had a Dream and he influenced many others with his Enthusiasm for Living in the fast lane, RIP Ed Shadle, your vision lives on.

I didn't know Ed personally but as Facebook friends we shared a passion. My hope is that someone facilitates his dream. Time is short but a window of opportunity exists to illuminate his name in the LSR Hall of Fame for all time.

Rip Ed and condolences to the family.

This is very sad.๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜ข Sad he is gone and just as the his NAE, North American Eagle is poised to set the landspeed record higher in the Supersonic range. This is heartbreaking for the lsr community.๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ž

very sad

RIP Ed

We are undertaking engine development at present. Planned 2020, subject to funding.

When are you guys going to do a pass in it???????

Some vehicles look like they want to fight you before they'll run well. Other's look "just right", like they just want to run....this looks like that. Sincerely hope you get the funding you need to develop & build the engine to let it run.

So VERY SPECIAL, congrats for reaching this milestone.

That looks like 1000 mph ๐Ÿ˜

Wow!! Looks awesome

the small fin atop of the fuselage just rear of the front wheel , what is its purpose ?

The wheels are chocked, looks like it has to be restrained! Is the nickname WINX?

Canโ€™t wait to see this weapon in action!!!

For all those asking the planned run date is 2020, but that is dependent on funding for the engine development.

It looks amazing Rosco, you and your team should be very proud of what you have achieved so far.๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ

Looking good Rosco, if you mention my name, youโ€™ll get a good seat up front ๐Ÿ˜Š

Will have to come up and see you again

It's so long you'd need one of those tennis balls on a bit of string to gauge where to stop when you park it in the garage! ๐Ÿ˜‰
