Projected to be 90 minutes in length, the races will be between proposed Rocket Racer planes that use liquid oxygen and either kerosene or ethanol fuel with a burn time of four minutes. Each rocket plane is expected to cost less than US $1 million. The airplanes are based on the Velocity airframe - derived from a commercially-available kit plane that traces its design heritage to the Rutan Long-EZ, which has been modified to accept rocket power and custom avionics. The first prototype flew on October 26, 2007 at the Mojave Spaceport. Source: Wikipedia
