The Bloodhound project which aims to break the land speed record is back on track at a new Gloucestershire headquarters.
Back on track: the history of Bloodhound
Now, the project has opened a new base in Berkeley and says Bloodhound will once again go for the world land speed record.
Bloodhound's new home is at SGS Berkeley Green University Technical College on the Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park.
Ian Warhurst says that since buying Bloodhound last December, "The team and I have been overwhelmed by the passion and enthusiasm the public have shown for the project.
"Over the last decade, an incredible amount of hard graft has been invested in the project and it would be a tragedy to see it go to waste."
Starting with a clean slate, it’s my ambition to let Bloodhound off the leash see just how fast this car can go. I’ve been reviewing the project and I’m confident there is a commercial business proposition to support it. I’ll provide robust financing to ensure there is cashflow to hit the high-speed testing deadlines we set ourselves.
The Executive Principal of SGS Berkeley Green says the college is "excited" to be the new home of the Bloodhound Project.
To have such a groundbreaking engineering project on site which shares our philosophy to enthuse and encourage the next generation of engineers, designers and scientists, will be invaluable for our own students and also for thousands of young people across the region.
