The Bloodhound project which aims to break the land speed record is back on track at a new Gloucestershire headquarters.
Now, the project's new multi-millionaire owner has opened a base in Berkeley and says Bloodhound will go for the world land speed record.
Back on track: the history of Bloodhound
- Project Bloodhound was founded in 2007 with plans to race the car at a specially built track in the deserts of South Africa.
- However, the project's future was under threat when the firm behind it went into administration in October last year and in early December, it was announced efforts to find £25 million worth of investment had failed.
- Yorkshire-based entrepreneur Ian Warhurst then stepped in and bought the businessand assets for an undisclosed amount.
- 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."
The Executive Principal of SGS Berkeley Green says the college is "excited" to be the new home of the Bloodhound Project.
