Just a few weeks now until the BLOODHOUND team deploys the Car to Newquay for the first time. We’re planning to be down there before the end of September, to get the workshop set up in one of the old hardened aircraft shelters, ready to start testing at the beginning of October.
As we complete each piece of the BLOODHOUND SSC, the October runs at Newquay feel a little closer. The surprising part of this process is that there are a lot of engineering judgements to be made as we build up the Car.
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.
Piece by piece, BLOODHOUND SSC is coming together. While the process is slow, it’s exciting to see more bits of the Car working for the first time, ready to start testing the Car later on this year.
