Lockheed Martin (UK) Ltd
On 6th June 2014, the BLOODHOUND Team passed a huge milestone, five years in the making. They successfully completed a spin test of the first of the supersonic machine’s four wheels.
It was great to see the cockpit finished and unveiled in public this month. This is my ‘1000 mph office’, which I first started to design over 6 years ago. It’s been exciting to see it come together, but as the design of the Car became more detailed, I’ve had to change some of the requirements as we went along. I’m thrilled and – I can now finally admit – slightly relieved that it does all fit in the space available.
Yesterday passed in a blur of activity here at the BLOODHOUND Technical Centre but was actually a critical milestone day for the entire project - by Commercial and Product Sponsorship Lead, Conor La Grue.
I missed a few months of Blog – Sorry! My feet are not touching the ground! – A catch up follows:
Lockheed Martin UK is providing Research & Development in the first step towards designing the wheels on the world’s fastest car, BLOODHOUND SSC.
