By now, we should all know about the Bloodhound SSC, the British land-speed racing effort that aims to set the ultimate land-speed record and top 1,000 MPH in the process. In honor of it, Stefan Marjoram recently created a poster that showcases in-scale profile drawings of each of the vehicles that captured the official world land-speed record. Stefan wrote:
It was hard to leave out a lot of great cars because they set ‘unofficial’ times – perhaps I’ll do another version sometime celebrating all the attempts. I wanted to highlight how the size and shape have changed over the years and so they are as close to the correct size in relation to each other as I could get them. The Bloodhound Land Speed Project’s main aim is to inspire a new generation of engineers, we’re rapidly running out of them in the UK – so a lot of the design and simulation work is being done by colleges and universities, it’s all open source and there are education officers being sent out to schools to get younger school children interested in the science behind it too. Beating 1000mph is number 3 on the list of goals! In order to help fund the Education Programme I’m donating half the profits from the prints. Hope you like it…
Stefan said that prints of the A2-sized poster (16.5 inches x 23.4 inches) will cost $76 each, including delivery, and can be ordered by emailing him at info [at] stefanmarjoram.com.
