MoD to play part in Bloodhound
THE Ministry of Defence has announced that it will be involved in the Bristol project to break the land speed record.
A team of five Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) experts will be helping to build and maintain the Bloodhound car over the next two years in the UK, and they will be on hand during the record attempts in South Africa next year and in 2014.
The Ministry of Defence hopes young people will be inspired to get involved in science, technology, mathematics and engineering as a result of the Bristol-based project.
Philip Dunne, minister for defence equipment, support and technology, said the project is a good opportunity for the Army to share its experience and skills.

"That experience will feed directly back into the front line as they progress through their Army careers," he said. "Today's announcement builds on the Royal Air Force's already considerable involvement with the project, through Wing Commander Andy Green and the retired Typhoon jet engine that will power Bloodhound."
The Bloodhound project aims to design and build a vehicle capable of shattering the 1,000mph mark.
