Driving at 1,000mph is risky in itself but imagine the scenario of a loose stone beneath the vehicle flipping up and penetrating the vehicle.

The team behind the Bloodhound Supersonic Car have done just that and have engaged Morgan Advanced Materials to develop a lightweight composite ballistic panel containing millions of woven glass fibres to absorb the energy of any projectiles that might hit them.
