On July 4th, David Willetts, Minister for Science and Universities opened the new BLOODHOUND Technical Centre in Avonmouth.

Mr Willetts announced a £1m grant for BLOODHOUND to support its education and outreach mission. This is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

During his visit, Mr Willetts helped BLOODHOUND’s engineers join the carbon composite front section, driver Andy Green’s 1,000 mph ‘office’, to the metal rear chassis which will house the car’s custom-designed rocket. This marked a major milestone for BLOODHOUND which will be the most powerful land vehicle ever created.
