The Bloodhound project is back on track and hoping to break the landspeed record this October

The Bloodhound project had been a victim of shortage of funding, however all’s not lost as a new sponsor deal means engineers can now continue with their work.

Believe it or believe it not this coming October will mark the twentieth anniversary of the current land speed record which reached 763 mph! However the Bloodhound project plan to beats this and hit 800 mph. The sponsors that have saved the project are not being named at this current time.

The project had this to say about it:

“We now have the most vision of forward-funding that we’ve ever had,” said components chief Conor La Grue. In the past, we’ve only ever really had funding to plan two to three months ahead. We’re now in a position to go all the way through to taking the record.”
