Bloodhound: 1000mph in a car, Poole

About this event

Bloodhound LSR is a World Land Speed Record car designed and built in Bristol, and now being completed at SGS Berkeley Green UTC in Gloucestershire. The talk will include videos and lots of technical details about the car and the record attempt and how you can get involved with this amazing project.

The project’s aim is two-fold: inspire young people to study Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and break the current record (763mph) and push it to 1000mph – yes, in a car!

The team was headed by Richard Noble - himself a previous record holder, and is now headed by Ian Warhurst, and the driver will be current world land speed record holder, RAF fighter pilot: Andy Green.
