1050mph...

I have been taking a look around an interesting project that has surprising similarities to ours...

The BLOODHOUND Project, the  engineering adventure for the 21st century. The United Kingdom has long been famed for its engineering heritage, but in recent years we have had little to shout about, until now! (I guess he's talking about The Splinter?)  The primary objective of the Project is to inspire the next generation to pursue careers in science, engineering, technology and maths - by demonstrating how they can be harnessed to achieve the seemingly impossible, such as the BLOODHOUND 1,000 mph land speed record...




Because the FIA World Land Speed Record rules are minimal, the challenger cars tend to be very different and therefore because the technology is unlikely to be of value to a competitor,  there is no need to be secretive about the technology.  So it can (and will) all be made available on the web – just as it happens. This is unique: the Defence, Motor Race and Space industries are unable to share their technology in this way.

Take a look at this video preview of their mission...
