Geely has announced that it is to provide technical and financial support to The Bloodhound Project, the global engineering project that aims to set a new 1000mph+ world land speed record.

Geely’s involvement is to include design and engineering support and the promotion of Bloodhound across Asia, as well as the roll out of the STEM (study science, technology, engineering and maths) inspiration program across China.

The three-year agreement means that plans for attempting to set a new world land speed record in 2017 are now back on track.

Geely joins a number of other partners on the project including Rolls-Royce, Thyssen Krupp and Jaguar, which has provided the supersonic car’s V8 engine.

Director of The Bloodhound Project Richard Noble said, “We could not have a better partner than Geely: not only are they an international technology company with tremendous vision and capability, they share our passion for innovation and education. Their support, both technical and financial, means we can now plan next year’s record-breaking challenge with confidence.”
