Bloodhound Model Rocket Car Workshop

 

 

Well done to the super Year 9 group who took part in the Bloodhound model rocket car workshop recently. Everyone listened with such enthusiasm to the lecture that was given on the Bloodhound land speed attempt. The British designed and built Bloodhound car will hope to reach speeds in excess of 1000mph in South Africa next year.  An unimaginable speed over the ground in a car! After the lecture year 9 had the opportunity to design, build and test their own model rocket car.  Top speed on the day was 41mph! A superb effort Rainey Engineers.
