Netitude see SuperSonic Car in the making!

As an IT Support company with an office in Bristol Netitude were fortunate to join a visit to see The BLOODHOUND SSC in its home in Bristol, organised by Business West.

BLOODHOUND SSC is a jet and rocket powered car designed to go at 1,000 mph (just over 1,600 kph). It has a slender body of approximately 14m length with two front wheels within the body and two rear wheels mounted externally within wheel fairings. It weighs over 7 tonnes and the engines produce more than 135,000 horsepower – more than 6 times the power of all the Formula 1 cars on a starting grid put together!

The project team recently started the 12-month countdown to its first Land Speed Record attempt, and celebrated Jaguar joining the programme as Innovation Partner, by staging a high-speed communications test at Hakskeen Pan, South Africa.
