Antistat sponsor 1,000mph supersonic car
Antistat are proud to announce its product sponsorship of the Bloodhound Project; a British made 1,000mph supersonic car. Antistat supplied the Bloodhound Project with specialist flooring technology and advice, during the crucial hybrid rocket system build stage. Antistat will now play their part in this new world record attempt. This challenge will no doubt capture the imagination of a worldwide audience and generations of budding engineers for years to come.
The Bloodhound Project is targeting a new World Land Speed Record, beating the previous British success story Thrust SSC, which reached 763mph back in 1997. The supersonic car is a mix of car and aircraft technology, the front half being carbon fibre like a racing car and the back half being a metallic framework like an aircraft.
Reaching 1,000mph in just 55 seconds, the fighter jet engine and cluster of hybrid rockets produce 135,000 horsepower, which is six times more than all of the Formula 1 cars on a starting grid put together!
Helen Dawdry, Sales Manager, Antistat UK, says “Like the Bloodhound Project, Antistat are a centre of excellence in their field, developing award winning supply chain solutions for our global manufacturing customer base. This record attempt is about using the very best in the world from the driver through to the tools used to build the car. We are very proud to be known as a trusted partner working hand in hand with the elite of British engineering innovation.”
