Andy Green’s Diary – April 2015

A fascinating thing about prototype engineering projects in general, and Land Speed Records in particular, is how they appear to move forwards in fits and starts. Right now, BLOODHOUND is charging ahead towards completion of the Car this summer, but there are still a few minor ‘speed bumps’ to deal with. The trick is to recognise these bumps for what they are: a perfectly normal part of the ‘Engineering Adventure’ to build the world’s first 1000 mph Car. Fortunately, the speed bumps remain few and far between, so we’re taking them in our stride and still smiling.
