Bloodhound buzz

27th November 2009 at 00:00

More than 2,000 schools have signed up to take part in education projects based around Britain's latest bid to break the world land speed record. The Bloodhound Project is designed to inspire young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The supersonic car is being built in Bristol. Wing commander Andy Green, who broke the world record by achieving a speed of 763 mph in ThrustSSC in 1997, hopes to take it to 1,000 mph. The record attempt will begin with runs on a flat, dried-up lake bed at Hakskeen Pan in South Africa's Northern Cape Province in 2011.
