The Bloodhound Project The BLOODHOUND Project

The BLOODHOUND Project is a global Engineering Adventure, using a 1000mph world land speed record attempt to inspire the next generation to enjoy, explore and get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.


The Project has a number of objectives

  • Inspire the next generation about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
  • Share an iconic research and development programme with a global audience.
  • Set a new World Land Speed Record of 1000mph..

Mission Statement:

Create a unique, high-technology project, focused around a 1000mph World Land Speed Record attempt. Share this Engineering Adventure with a global audience and inspire the next generation by bringing science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life in the most exciting way possible.

Andy Green’s Diary – April 2017

Work continues as we prepare BLOODHOUND SSC to run at Newquay later on this year. While it’s tempting to become frustrated about how long this is taking, a recent comment by an independent project management company put it in perspective for me. They observed that getting to 1,000mph is ‘right at the limit of human technical achievement’, which tells me two things. The first is that we’ve probably chosen the right target for our ‘Engineering Adventure’ to showcase cutting-edge technology to a global audience.
