The Bloodhound Project Kevin Murray

Kevin Murray

Systems Engineer

I am proud to be joining the Bloodhound SSC team as a Systems Engineer. I was previously employed as an Avionics Technician maintaining Helicopters and UAV’s and I continue to work with UAV’s in my role with the REME ARMY Reserves.

I have also worked in a coachbuilders completing conversions, upgrades, modifications and carrying out repairs. My passion for Engineering and all things speed related surfaced at an early age when I learned to ride dirt bikes in the fields behind my house before I had even started school. I went on to race endurance competitions at international level twice representing GB overseas and I am now a national Enduro coach.

I am also a STEMNET Ambassador for the Wiltshire area and I hope to pass on my enthusiasm for the technical and engineering aspects of aviation and motorsports to the next generation of young engineers.

Week 2 - Newquay Run Report

Sunday, 8 October, 2017 - 20:00

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.
