Two new hydraulic power packs delivered to the BLOODHOUND Supersonic Car (SSC) team this week will make safety and operational testing much easier, in the run-up to the project’s world land speed record bid.
Take a look at our latest animation featuring Nammo rocket engines which have a Jaguar powered fuel pump lubricated by Castrol EDGE, and Parker assisted airbrakes.
Happy New Year to everyone. I don’t know what you’re planning in the next 12 months, but for BLOODHOUND, 2015 is the year that we start running the world’s fastest Car!
Find out how Parker are helping to stop the BLOODHOUND Supersonic Car at speeds of upto 800mph and below
Earlier this month I was speaking to a British Airways audience at their annual flight safety day. My aim was to tell them how we set the first-ever supersonic record back in 1997, with Thrust SSC, and to talk about how we planned to get to 1000 mph with BLOODHOUND, safely. It was also a useful chance for us to show our homework to a group of industry safety specialists – in this case 200 commercial pilots and aircraft engineers. If there is something that we haven’t thought of yet, they will find it! From my point of view, this is one of the great strengths of Project BLOODHOUND. The more expert advice we have, the more confident we can be that we’re going in the right direction.
