SSC Tuatara Will Rerun for Top Speed Record
SSC did not reveal the date of the re-run.
As soon as the SSC Tuatara made headlines last month for its world’s top speed record, experts started analyzing the video released by the company. It turned out there were some inconsistencies in the video, which prompted folks like Shmee and others to raise questions about its validity.
SSC duly noted the accusations and said the video had editing problems. The company told media they are looking into the matter and will come back with a response soon.
Well, the answer just came from none other than the company’s founder, Jerod Shelby. In a video (you can see above), he said they will redo the SSC Tuatara’s top speed record challenge.
“So as I sat there thinking through, there was just no way to now make this perfect. It hit me. We have to re-run the record. We have to do this again and do it in a way that it’s undeniable and irrefutable. So the next time we do this, which is we’re going to prepare to do it in the very near future, we need to make sure we have multiple GPS companies, equipment in the car. I want to make sure that we have their staff on-site looking over our shoulders and analyzing every run, every detail of this,” he stated in the video
Furthermore, Shelby has invited Shmee and other automotive experts who raised the voice on this matter to be there when they re-run.
“I’d like you to be looking over our shoulder and verifying so that you can tell the world and the car community that you also are in all over what this car is capable of,” he remarked.
SSC did not reveal the date of the re-run but we believe they will do it before the end of this year.
