Catch me if you can....

How does it feel to drive at 15 times the motorway speed limit? Well, you can find out now on the BLOODHOUND Driving Experience.

Thanks to IT sponsor Intel, we at the University of Southampton have been able to work with a great team to bring this project to fruition.

Using our experience in flight simulation, aerodynamics and vehicle modelling, we worked with Cursive Simulation to create a model that recreates the full experience from 0 to 1000 to 0 mph - all in 100 seconds.
