The Hakskeen Pan in the Northern Cape, South Africa is a bone dry, desert bowl 200km north of the nearest airport. During the summer months, temperatures during the day can reach 45° Celsius and dust storms are a common occurrence. It’s in this scorching heat, carved out between the dunes, that Bloodhound have cleared the track upon which they intend to test their supersonic car and in doing so, break the land-speed record.
It’s hard to imagine a tougher environment in which to operate and maintain a precision engineered, finely balanced machine like the BLOODHOUND Supersonic Car. To do so successfully, The BLOODHOUND Project asked Bott to provide workshop kit capable of withstanding the same extreme climate and conditions as their car, providing adequate protection and storage for the all the tools, spare parts and equipment they need to complete their challenge. In short, they need Bott’s products to be unquestionably built to last.
