Bloodhound: Britain’s 1000 mph land speed record attempt

Bloodhound image_side_

You may or may not of heard of this amazing engineering project that started back in 2008. The vision for Bloodhound came from a desire from Richard Noble & Andy Green to break the land speed record and reach 1000mph, to go public with the ongoing design & development, and to promote & inspire the next generation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, through this amazing adventure.

Here’s a couple of short videos to wet the engineering appetite!

      Thanks John,
      It looks like they are aiming for November this year to break present record of ~ 780 mph, in S Africa, then examine vehicle for analysis then attempt 1000 mph in 2016
      Let’s hope everything goes well
      Mike
