Richard Noble (left) Richard Noble, OBE (born 6 March 1946) was the holder of the land speed record between 1983 and 1997, and was the project director of ThrustSSC, the vehicle which holds the current land speed record, set at Black Rock Desert, Nevada in 1997. Thrust2, the record-breaking car driven by Noble, travelled at 633.468 mph (1019 km/h). The accomplishment won Noble the 1983 Segrave Trophy. ThrustSSC, the supersonic car driven by Andy Green, broke the record at 763.035 mph (1221 km/h) or Mach 1.02. Noble is planning another land speed record attempt to take place in 2011: Bloodhound SSC aims to pass the 1,000mph mark.[1] Noble was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and educated at Winchester College and became a qualified pilot. In 1984 he exploited a production hiatus at Cessna aircraft to create a new all-British light aircraft, the ARV Super2. Only some 35 ARVs were made before the Isle of Wight factory closed; but production has restarted at Opus Aircraft in North Carolina. He started Farnborough Aircraft in 1998, but after failing to find backing from any major financial institution, sold shares to small investors. A bitter dispute followed, and development stopped while new investment was found. The rights to the design were sold and design and development continues. A prototype has been flying since 2006 but certification and production remain uncertain. In 2010 he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Technology by the University of the West of England.[2] References ^ BBC News: Supersonic car targets 1,000mph" ^ "UWE awards honorary degree to Richard Noble OBE".
