Richard Noble brings business leaders up to speed on 1,000mph record attempt

Business leaders were given a fascinating update on the attempt to break the World Land Speed record of 1,000mph when the Bloodhound SSC (SuperSonic Car) came to Birmingham. Moore Stephens, one of the UK’s top 10 accountancy firms, hosted the event for 100 guests at its Calthorpe Road offices with the support of Calthorpe Estates, Perkins Slade and Birmingham City University. They heard from Bloodhound project director Richard Noble who brought along a full-sized model of the jet rocket powered car which aims to break the record in 2016.
