Goliath Footwear were happy to be able to supply Goliath boots to a Fire and Rescue Engineering team as they joined the Bloodhound Land Speed Record team in South Africa. Phase 1 test target of 600mph was finally accomplished when the Bloodhound LSR achieved a land speed of 628 miles mph, which means they can push things further in the next testing sessions next year.
Gary Taylor and his team from G.S.T. Tec were on hand with their expertise, complete with Goliath SDR10CSI DDR boots, which, from his considerable time with Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue service, he knows are durable, comfortable and ideal for the job. The current landspeed record of 763mph set by ThrustSSC, is the target to beat and it looks likely given this successful test mission that Bloodhound LSR team will smash it in the not too distant future.
