Friday 6th October concludes the BLOODHOUND Team’s first week of dynamic testing with the EJ200 jet engine powered car on the taxiway at Cornwall Airport Newquay.
Dynamic testing followed last week’s static tests which saw the car tied to a ring fixed in the ground while the EJ200 jet engine was bought up to max reheat.
The Team are following their rigorous set of run profiles that see the car build speed safely, incrementally, culminating with high-speed trials on the 26th October.
The BLOODHOUND Build Team trial fit one of the carbon fibre 'cheek' pieces to the jet and rocket powered car. These run from the monocoque forward over the cooling ice tanks, front subassembly and front suspension (pictured). Skillfully manufactured by URT Group
BLOODHOUND's resident artist Stefan Marjoram took time out to sketch the upper and lower chassis togther with the carbon composite monocoque.
