The BLOODHOUND SSC, Super Sonic Car was one of the show-stopping features at the tenth IMAGINEERING FAIR held at the Country Festival, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire on the August Bank Holiday. The stunning vehicle is set for an attempt on the World Land Speed Record in 2011. This was only the second time that the public had been able to view the show car to date.
The event, supported by Advantage West Midlands, attracted thousands of people from across the Midlands who came to celebrate Imagineering’s 10th Anniversary with the aid of over 20 major engineering and manufacturing organisations. The Fair was a major feature at the Country Festival and the scores of fantastic fun activities kept children occupied for hours.
Robots of all shapes and sizes; racing cars – remote controlled and full size; environmental themed activities; fun science; mechanical challenges, to name just a few of the attractions!
Special visitors included Trevor Baylis, the famous inventor, who stayed throughout the Fair; The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Coventry Councillor and Mrs Jack Harrison; Malcolm Harbour MEP and his wife; Barry Brooks, Vice-President, IET; Rod Dawes, IMechE; Bruce Taylor, Nissan; Martyn Hollingsworth, Jaguar Land Rover; Michael Franklin from Lloyds Register Educational Trust; Brian Warren from Stoneleigh Park and Richard Noble, Project Director of the Bloodhound SSC.
