Bott sponsors world land speed record attempt

Bott is supplying its storage products in support of an attempt to break the world land speed record by a youth group, the Bloodhound project.

The UK manufacturer of industrial storage equipment has supplied workshop cupboards, drawer units and workbenching for the bid, known as the Bloodhound project.
The Bloodhound project aims to inspire young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics by showcasing them in the most exciting way possible, in this case by building a super sonic car.


The attempt to beat the world record is scheduled for next year, and the car will be assembled in workshops near Brunel’s SS Great Britain in Bristol,

Bott has provided each engineer working on the project with their own customised storage cupboard and workbench.

Richard Noble, director of the project, said: “The whole project is really gathering momentum.  With the fantastic support from sponsors like Bott we are on target to start building the car in spring 2011.”
