Bloodhound – an update.

By John Mason, Rolls-Royce

The Bristol Branch of the Royal Aeronautical Society is pleased to announce that January’s lecture will be an update on the Bloodhound LSR project.

Bloodhound LSR (Land Speed Record) is an ambitious project which aims to break the current record for a car of 763mph, with speeds of up to 1000mph possible with the current design.  The project has had a couple of challenging years, but after a tumultuous 2019, has recently been able to complete the initial set of test runs in the desert at Hakskeen Pan, South Africa.

John Mason of Rolls-Royce, who has been an integral link between Bloodhound and Rolls-Royce since the early days of the project, will give a recap of the project, including details of the car’s recent testing.

The lecture will be held at Rolls-Royce in Bristol, where the car’s main powerplant, the Eurojet EJ200, is made; an example of the engine is on permanent display in the hall where the lecture will be taking place.  Due to site security, we require all attendees to pre-register for this lecture.  We unfortunately won’t be able to allow people on-site who have not registered.

For free tickets, please register here using the link here: Bloodhound Eventbrite Ticket

Refreshments from 6pm, with lecture starting at 6.30pm.  Horizon Hall, Rolls-Royce Bristol.

Instructions on how to get to the lecture will be sent out a few days before to all who have registered.
