RNAS Culdrose Blood Hound Hub Competition

Saturday 1st April 2017

RNAS Culdrose Blood Hound Hub Competition

A number of our Year 9 students entered the RNAS Culdrose Blood Hound competition this week, and won the secondary school category with a rocket car named Pink Storm MH. Its fastest speed was measured at 44.297 mph. This result means the team have reached the County Final. Winners of the Cornwall final will go through to the National competition, with a £1000 prize and a trip to South Africa for the overall winners, where they can witness the record-breaking attempt by the full sized Blood Hound SSC. Each team that makes the final will have their team name placed on the tail fin of the Blood Hound SSC.

The students were a credit to the College and were commended by officers from Culdrose, for their engagement and conduct throughout.
