ACE helps manufacture 1,000mph Bloodhound car

Composite materials, tooling and the design and component manufacturing capability of Advanced Composites Group (ACG), part of Umeco Composites Structural Materials (UCSM), are being provided to the Bloodhound Project, an international education initiative focused around a 1,000mph land speed record attempt.

Using ACG’s pre-preg materials, the group’s engineering division Advanced Composites Engineering (ACE) will manufacture the entire front section of the car, constructing the master models and tooling from which elements of the car’s bodywork and structural components, such as the monocoque and nose, will be produced.

ACE will also manufacture the air-intake and rear-wheel fairings, areas that are vital to the aerodynamic performance and stability of the car.
