The SSC Tuatara top-speed controversy is much from over. Jerod Shelby, founder and CEO of SSC, launched a video the place he says SSC goes to rerun the top-speed file.
This comes only a couple days after SSC stated there was an editing issue on the video aspect that may account for the inconsistencies that deliver into doubt the 331-mph prime pace. You’ll be able to watch the video on the prime to get Shelby’s full assertion.
“We have been seeing completely different speeds for the exact same run,” Shelby says in response to watching the movies again. “The extra we seemed, and the extra we tried to investigate, the extra we have been involved there have been doubts within the relationship between the video and the GPS.”
Dewetron, the maker of the monitoring gear used for the run, nonetheless hasn’t analyzed the gear, and at this level we don’t know if it ever will. Shelby thinks the extent of controversy round this run is sufficient to completely rerun it.
“It doesn’t matter what we do within the coming days to attempt to salvage this specific file, it’s all the time gonna have a stain on it … now we have to rerun the file, now we have to do that once more,” Shelby says. “And do it in a means that it’s simple and irrefutable.”
Shelby says SSC will put together for one more run and do it within the “very close to future.” This time, the Tuatara can have a number of GPS items from completely different producers within the automotive. They are going to have the GPS corporations’ employees onsite. Moreover, Shelby invited a few of the YouTubers who known as the file into query with video analyses to start with.
What this video didn’t do is totally clarify what occurred within the unique runs. As a substitute, it successfully abandons these earlier file claims in pursuit of a second top-speed run. There’s nonetheless no announcement on who will likely be doing the driving on this second run. Oliver Webb drove the Tuatara within the first run, however he has but to return ahead as the motive force for the second run.
Because it stands, the Tuatara’s original claimed 316 mph run just isn’t going into the file books. We’ll be eagerly awaiting this second run.
