Come and have a go if you think you are fast enough

The simulator was developed in collaboration with the University of Southampton, Cursive Simulation, The Race Centre, the University of the West of England Bristol and Escape Studios, and is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor 940.


Bloodhound, the 1000mph supersonic car, is to use Intel technology in its bid to improve the world land speed record. The chip maker’s Atom processors – similar to versions used in laptop computers – will be part of the engine and in-car control systems and will manage the calculations behind the car’s “hybrid” propulsion systems. The car will be powered by the largest hybrid rocket ever designed in Europe - including a jet engine from Typhoon fighter aircraft.
