Bloodhound and Bott inspire the next generation

Bloodhound’s replica of their supersonic car arrived at the Bude manufacturing site on September 26 and was followed by a visit from Stratton Primary School’s year 6 pupils in the afternoon.

Bude Junior School’s year 6 pupils attended a presentation the following morning, given a tour of the Bott facility, a chance to emulate the Bloodhound team and create a balloon powered car to compete in the afternoon’s race. At the end of the visit pupils were given the chance to see Bloodhound’s model rocket car in action.
