Engineering and Product Sponsorship Lead Conor La Grue reports on the build of BLOODHOUND's rear lower chassis:
It has been an incredibly exciting period for all the team as the rear lower chassis has been completed. This was the culmination of 30 months of effort by a huge number of individuals and companies and I have to start by saying - thanks Team! The build of BLOODHOUND SSC is utterly dependent on the huge value brought by our Product Sponsors that are helping bring this car to life.
BloodhoundSSC is very honoured to have Rolls-Royce as a sponsor and now proudly displays their logo on the side of the car. Cisco BHTV was at the announcement and there when the EJ200 jet engine was tested with BloodhoundSSC's control system. Engineer Joe Holdsworth explains

University of the West of England (UWE) film students used BLOODHOUND as the subject for their final year project. They visited the BLOODHOUND Technical Centre, conducted interviews with the team and produced this fantastic film:
Building the future takes people. People brave enough, tenacious enough, dedicated enough to go the distance. To try over and over again to find new solutions to the world's changing needs. And to succeed. Building the future takes engineers.
"Bloodhound SSC is a unique, cutting edge engineering project that captures people's imaginations. Vitally, however it's being used to inspire young people about engineering and to consider engineering careers. It's not just rocket science -- it's true engineering innovation."
