Monday, 11 March, 2013


What should the helmet of the man driving the fastest car on Earth look like?  We just can’t decide.

So... we need you to use a bit of colour, a dash of imagination and your creative flair, to design a helmet for Bloodhound SSC driver, Andy Green, to wear on some of his runs both in the UK and South Africa.

The competition is open to students of all ages in schools and colleges in the UK and also to schools in the Northern Cape Province, South Africa. 

 We will pick winners in each of the following categories:

• Primary (Ages 4-11)
• Secondary (Ages 11-16)
• A-level, FE, HE (Age 16+)

The Prizes!

Two overall winners (one from the UK and one from South Africa) will see their designs adapted by a top professional helmet designer and put onto a helmet, which will be worn by Bloodhound SSC driver, Andy Green.

The winners will also be invited to attend one of the Bloodhound SSC test runs and their schools/colleges will receive a visit from the Bloodhound Education Team.
