Think your car’s fast? You ain’t seen nothing yet…

A model of the Bloodhound outside Augustine House

A model of a car designed to be fastest in the world is paying a visit to Canterbury.

The Bloodhound, built to travel 1,000 miles per hour, is greeting students and passers-by outside Canterbury Christ Church University’s Augustine House in Rhodaus Town.

Its visit coincides with a talk its creator Richard Noble will give at the university.

The 72-year-old Scottish entrepreneur is the current holder of the land speed record and director of the Bloodhound Supersonic Car Project, which aims to break it.

He will talk about the British-developed high-tech vehicle which is part jet fighter, part Formula 1 racing car and part space rocket and about the efforts to motivate more people to study maths and sciences.

It takes place at Augustine Hall tonight (Thursday) from 6pm to 7pm.
