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.
