Bloodhound supersonic car ready for first public run

Today Bloodhound is set to conduct a series of ‘low speed’ trials at Newquay airport.

The aim of Bloodhound is to reach 800mph, and then 1000mph, however today in Cornwall the car will go up to 200mph in its first ever run. It will be the first chance for engineers to assess all of the electronics built into the car and will help with gathering of key data.

As a demonstration of our desire to set the pace in this sector, Moore Stephens is thrilled to be sponsoring Bloodhound. The relationship began back in 2013 and has proved to be a rewarding one for both parties. Partner Miles Hewitt-Boorman comments: “We’re not only sponsoring an exciting project that will break a world record, but by sponsoring Bloodhound we are also helping to sponsor the science, technology, engineering and maths agenda. There is a big educational programme involved to encourage students to enter science and engineering careers.”

Research & development
For projects such as Bloodhound innovation and research & development are intrinsically linked. Our teams of engineers, software programmers, and scientists as well as our specialist finance professionals such as auditors and tax accountants, have been successfully managing R&D claims since the scheme began in 2000. To date, they have claimed back £250m for our clients across numerous businesses and have a 100% success rate on the technological aspects of the claims.

For more information, please get in touch with Miles Hewitt-Boorman or Richard Willis.
