Bloodhound roars into 2011 in good health

Posted by in Around Britain, England, Featured Post, Tech & Gadgets | 0 comments

The 1000mph British car is in good health, says Richard Noble.

In all the problems of the world, the financial difficulties, it’s great to see that not only is there space for a mad project or two – like the Bloodhound SSC – but to see it being supported both by the public and institutions.

The quest to get a car up to 1000 miles per hour is just soooo British it hurts, and former land speed record holder Richard Noble is one of the names behind this one, and hi end of year diary is full of promise.

Of course it’s been a very tough fight to get this far – there seems to be an expectancy that because Bloodhound doesn’t seem to fit the mould of any normal business, it will soon crash and burn in the difficult financial climate. But it doesn’t – it doesn’t because it is fulfilling a very vital role in all important education and the project is trying to project British engineering at its very best.  One of our Ambassadors made the point – there are very few school engineering projects which excite both the teachers and their classes!

That’s what we need more of on this island – ideas, big ideas, that deliver for everyone.
