How does Bloodhound slow down?
A team of young Bloodhound Investigators are set challenges by Dr Yan Wong. The Investigators find out how Bloodhound will slow down. They meet with Annie Berrisford at Santa Pod, who shows them Split Second cars that are powered by jet engines and are slowed down in two ways - a parachute and wheel breaks. Annie explains that Bloodhound will have both types too; the wheel breaks are for low speeds, less than 100 mph! First broadcast on the Learning Zone on BBC in February 2012 for the series The Bloodhound Adventure.
