Bloodhound SSC (SuperSonic Car) will make its world debut on Tuesday 17th November 2015 with a 200mph trial at Newquay Aerohub.
The car will then be fitted with airbrakes and wingets ready to commence high-speed testing in Hakskeen Pan, South Africa in Summer 2016, when weather conditions will be optimal. A forward party will deploy in April/May next year to prepare the team's desert base.
The results from the Summer 2016 tests will inform the Project's ultimate speed goal of setting a new World Land Speed Record of 1,000mph.
Further details of the configuration of the Car will be announced in August when BLOODHOUND SSC will be shown in highly assembled form at the Teams Technical Centre, Avonmouth.
Construction of the Car is well advance with its titanium floor fitted, two metre high tail fin nearly finished, and carbon-fibre front monocoque painted to aerospace standards. Regular updates can be seen at www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com and also on Twitter @BLOODHOUND_SSC.
The BLOODHOUND Project is now one of the world's biggest STEM engagement programmes (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), with c100,000 children per year enjoying BLOODHOUND activities and lessons in the UK alone.
Details of the day will be shared shortly including an agenda for the day, activites and displays.
