It would appear that the measured mile is measured using GPS technology and then lasers are positioned at the points along the course - the run must then be completed in the opposite direction (over come bias of favourable winds etc). An average of the 2 runs is then taken.

A frog with a tophat runs along side of the car and tells the people how fast it was going, they use this method instead of the 'GPS' I've known it can also be a pretty pony aswell! It is interesting because where they drive the cars/rockets is on a salt plain, >fish and chips with a pinch of SALT...nom nom nom< Each car used needs to specially modified so it can be able to start properly no this is important othewise they wouldn't finish the distance....etc. :D .
