Sparks, NV, Feb. 29 – The Steve Fossett World Land Speed Racing Team today announced a preliminary short list of eight driver candidates for its jet-powered race car that will attempt to establish a new Absolute Supersonic Land Speed Record in excess of 800MPH. Candidates are from motorsports and aviation and include:

“A few remaining applicants are still reviewing their ability to work with our schedule, and that’s been the hardest requirement for the qualified candidates,”

The team remains committed to Steve Fossett’s vision and with the successful test firing of the jet engine, the driver evaluation and selection is in full swing. The driver will be exposed to a combination of G-loads and visual distortion greater than any other person has ever experienced. Assisting project manager Eric Ahlstrom in the process will be an advisory board of notable motorsports and aviation professionals. They include:

said Program Manager Eric Ahlstrom. “We accepted going in that most of them would have other commitments with racing teams and sponsors. We reviewed many qualified applicants, and selected our short list based on applicable professional experience, physical constraints of the cockpit, and the ability to commit to our 2008 test and run schedule.”
