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...
