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!
