OB on world land speed record

Old Bedalian Angus McLeod, who is currently a first year Engineering student at Swansea University, came to deliver a lecture on the Bloodhound SSC project to a group of Block 5 and 6.1 physicists last Friday. His presentation covered the latest developments in the UK’s 1000mph world land speed record attempt next year in South Africa. The driver/pilot Andy Green is already the world record holder and the target set is significant step up designed to drive technological innovation forwards. Angus’s talk was stimulating and motivating and a clear reminder of the world leading engineering capabilities of this country.
