We are proud to support the Bloodhound SSC project. Launched in 2008, the project is an international education initiative centralising upon a land speed record attempt to reach 1000mph. The intention is to break the current land speed record attempt by 33%, the largest ever margin. The vehicle incorporates 3 engines including Britain\’s biggest Hybrid rocket (which offers world-beating power and efficiency), a jet engine from a Eurofighter Typhoon, and a Cosworth V8 engine from an F1 car to pump the fuel to the rocket.
Having been involved since early 2012, we wholeheartedly support this captivating project not only for it\’s progressive, challenging engineering, but for its economic and political implications. The project\’s focus on encouraging young people to get into engineering can only be a good thing and is certainly an initiative which could help Britain on the road to economic recovery.
