The Bloodhound Project BLOODHOUND SSC for parents

Welcome to the BLOODHOUND SSC website. Here you should be able to find everything you need to know about this UK-led, global project to build a supersonic car that will not only beat the current land speed world record but also smash the 1,000mph barrier.

About the car

If you want to know what BLOODHOUND SSC is, this video is a great introduction to the car and the project.

You can also find out more about the car and where the record will be attempted in the Project section of our website:

And there are lots of fun facts for kids (and adults!) in our infographics.


Now you’ve found out about the car and the World Land Speed Record, how about doing some fun related activities with your children? We’ve got loads of ideas in our Education section – they are described as “Topics to use in lessons” but you could do some of them at home as well.

The Resources for Schools, Families and Groups are split up by Key Stage, so as long as you know which Key Stage your child is in, you can pick out ones that will be right for their age group.

You can also pick up some great value projects in our online shop. We’ve got a BLOODHOUD SSC activity sheet, where children can see the car and design their own record-breaking car, card models of BLOODHOUND that can be slotted together or a pop-out card model kit and a balloon car kit.

Although most of the events we organise for children happen within individual schools or groups, we sometimes take our full-size model of BLOODHOUND to special events. So keep an eye on our Events page for events happening near you.
