Love it. Go Rosco.
Yes agree big ones 🤣🤣🤣
I love this 💕
Glad I'm not the only one thinking this 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Yes, mate, they must be spares, as I know you have a set in your pants....🤪🤣
So that's where you keep em?
They are obviously from a dwarf. Not even close to Rosco's. Need a wheelbarrow for them.
Thought you had them, when driving the rocket go cart
Nice to hear Bloodhound may finally run. Perhaps loan these out to help them along!?
Kinda pictured them being much bigger
Nice one Rosco 👍
Yeh don't think they are Big enough
Definitely need them.
Church of Speed
Love the Australians they just get on with it not like us Brits lol just need £12 million and lots of talking about it lol 😂
Would be carbon fibre now , to take in the weight .
You already have much larger ones as I have seen you in action in jet dragsters etc. You.operate jet dragsters in a confined space ie drag strip's to perfection, so being able to A I 5R in a larger area will be easy, in comparison. You can always point to the ones in the picture & proudly say Ha mine are bigger!
Out comes the feminists.

Its never going to be easy, but its the bad days like this in racing that make the good days so much better. At least thats what I tell myself.
That can remove jet engines have good clean that not big deal
Really sorry for dave and the team. I'm sure they will be back soon. Glad no one was injured 👍👍
Bugger. And they've been doing so well as well! It's not my area of knowledge but is there any benefit to a mesh covering on intakes on vehicles such as Spirit of Australia 2 where this sort of thing can be a risk? Or does it constrict the effective airflow too much.
Sad news. Main thing is the driver I hope is uninjured.
Sad to read this as all was going so well. As others have said, glad no one was injured.
Reminds me of a time someone took out a a witches 🧙♀️ hat at high speed.
Put sum flywire over the air hole so birds bounce off it
Mongrel birds..good luck..
Ouch...welcome to low level aviation 😕
Sorry to hear about this unfortunate event, the main thing is you were safe
That sucks but your ok thats all that matters
Who's driving it?
Oh bugger. Sorry to hear an engine rebuild is necessary.
Sorry for your bad luck, good luck for the repairs
Last Saturday night, our Perth Motorplex invited me to join some other Perth racing legends to a celebration at the track. It was a fantastic event and a great opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the old-time racers like myself, and some not so old. Pictured in this photo from L to R - Daniel Miocevitch, The Mighty Hudson Brothers, Wayne Keys, myself, Tony Katavatis’s, Allan Dobson, Greg Burns, and the lovely wives who make it all happen! Thank you, Gavin Migro and the Motorplex staff, and of course, Phil Reeves and his lovely assistant Mouse, for their photos and lifelong dedication to motorsport. ... See MoreSee Less

Blair Bentz thanks Blair.
Absolute pleasure Rosco, and real happy I got a chance for the memory to be captured for you all.
Rosco, read your book and loved it! Hope you can break the L.S.R. soon, before Bloodhound puts it out of reach.
That's cool. Well done Rosco
Lord Ernest Clive Hudson Rosco knows who the Hudson’s are! Roy Hudson Alan Hudson My first ever drag racing hero! 🚗 🔥 Talk about famous!

We are no longer selling signed hardback copies of our book. We still have signed paperbacks, but because Amazon does not print the hardback in Australia, we have to ship them from the USA to Perth, sign them and then send them out. The cost is just too expensive for it to be viable anymore. See comments below. 👇👇👇 ... See MoreSee Less

Luckily I got mine personally signed by the man himself Rosco.👍👍
I am sure it could be organised to have your own copy signed locally with a small donation.
Imagine BloodhoundLSR & Aussie Invader 5R together at Hakskeen in 2025 or 2026. Duel in the desert part 2.

Got experience in jet cars, and boats. 3 million to spend. However with all that, I have to admit. Roscoe has this in the bag. Go on Roscoe it's yours for the taking. 💯👍👍
Shurley red bull or monster can jump on for the best drag race shoot out in history 🤔 🙂
They've seen your rig progressing
I'm tall like Andy, however that's where the similarities end. Also my bank account isn't in the millions.... sadly! Proud to be apart of the original team and be apart of the LSR community. Good luck to you Rosco & team, I'm watching.
I believe we’re seeing the death throes of Bloodhound SSC, as sad as it is in a way.
The issue with Rosco is his age and heath. Andy was young when he set the WLSR. It takes a strong body and mind to see it through as a driver. The G force and all other issues invalved. Rosco need's to find a young driver with funding as well. I think all can see my point of view. If your older than 60 your refexes slow down and your old tired body can't withstand the forces and quick mental retirements needed
How much does the driver need to bring? $100k? 50 million? Coax Elon into doing it, he has lots of money to throw away.
And it reeks of desperation! Unless someone with serious skills steps up, this can only end badly... and that will make it even harder to attract funding to LSR attempts!
Aussie Invader vs SSC Bloodhound Desert Duel PPV sign me up! 📺👍
Drive north cars Rosco
Put your hand up Rosco. Get some practice in. Break the record in the Bloodhound then beat it in the Invader 🏁🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺
Will it ever happen? The years just drag on with the same problem not being solved. Funding/money. Be a shame never to see this after all the engineering, time and effort put into each project from so many people..
I'm definitely the guy for the job I will never lift
Travis Pastrana Cleetus McFarland
I’d pilot it no danger!
You pay the £3 million and I will put it to a 1000 mph for you
Getting absolutely lambasted on the Bloodhound pages. The company I am with was one of the initial sponsors (felt great to see our logo on the side of the original project) and it's sad to see it go down this route. I would get involved with roadshows and school presentations, even did a few here in Perth. This unfortunately sounds like the last desperate act to get it back on the road. As a note, lots of people saying Andy Green is too old so should be replaced... Rosco has a few years on him 🤣🤣🤣
Seat for rent ?
Looks like you are using the "Black Rock Desert", let us know when you are there as we live about 80 miles away and can provide some support.
Trent Pigdon this looks like a job for you.
Sick ya hand up Rosco McGlashan , practice for when you smash it with your own car lol
The ultimate Rent-A-Ride 😅
So what happened to Andy Green?
whats happened to andy green?
Aussie Invader 5R is big, and this shot at the Avalon Airshow really shows her size. ... See MoreSee Less

When are you going to begin runs?
Aerodynamic masterpeice, Interested to know How much a full Fuel load Weighs ? great thing this car is the correct configuration to stay on the ground as the fuel load decreases at High speed.
How fast is it ? 400 mph ?
Reminds me of the old blue flame!❤️👍🏻 wish you guys lots of luck!￼￼
