June 5th

VISIT Visit to The AMEX Stadium at Falmer at 11.00am    
September 17th AGM followed by a talk by our member Chris Rickard The talk will start with discussing how it was decided to design and build a car to do 1,000 mph, and how the team managed to persuade the Ministry to loan them the typhoon jet engines needed for the project by starting up an education
program around STEM.
Some short videos will be shown regarding the design process, and the problems and mistakes made securing funding for the project.
The talk will then move on to the testing done in Newquay to prove to Rolls Royce that the design could provide sufficient air intake to enable Max Re-burn from the EJ 200 standing still.
Finally, the talk will explain how the project went broke and the receivers were called in. Fortunately, things were saved at the last minute enabling the project to proceed to testing in South Africa, which is where Bloodhound is currently.
