Exactly 12 months ago we held the public launch of the nearly completed Car. It was obvious that we had a winner, now we just had to find the right partner to help us get it finished.

As Project BLOODHOUND starts its preparations to run the Car in South Africa next year, the many complex pieces of our ‘Engineering Adventure’ are gradually coming together.

After some intensive planning, the target date has been chosen. BLOODHOUND plans to set a new Outright World Land Speed Record, aiming at 800 mph, in October 2017.

BIG news from BLOODHOUND: Finally, the news we’ve all been waiting for. We’ve just confirmed a new source of funding, so we can now crack on with getting BLOODHOUND SSC ready to run.

Engineering progress on the Project remains slow, as we focus our efforts on getting the funding together to run the Car next year. The good news is that we’re generating more and more interest, as global companies look at our fully-assembled Car and ask the question we want to hear: ‘How do I get involved?’.

‘Time spent in reconnaissance is seldom wasted’. This famous military quote may well be over 2000 years old, but it’s still true today.

Monday, 1 February, 2016

While we’re working steadily to get BLOODHOUND SSC ready for its first runs, our ‘Engineering Adventure’ continues to captivate young audiences. Part of exploring the science and technology is to do-it-yourself, so it’s no surprise that our Model Rocket Car Challenge is in huge demand.

It’s remarkable to look back at the progress we’ve made over the past 12 months ...

I’m regularly asked whether Project BLOODHOUND is going to develop any new technology that will be used in the future. My answer is always ‘I hope not’.

Saturday, 31 October, 2015

After last month’s hugely successful public launch, we’re busy planning for next year’s trip to the desert.

This is going to be a difficult diary to write without sounding over-excited. We’ve just launched BLOODHOUND SSC in public and seeing the world’s fastest racing car in once piece for the first time was thrilling.
