STP, founder sponsor of the BLOODHOUND SSC 1,000mph World Land Speed Record bid, in co-operation with Goodwood, is hosting a dramatic display at this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, July 3-5.
A full-size model of the mighty BLOODHOUND SSC (Super Sonic Car) will be on show for the first time, in the centre of the exhibition area, allowing visitors to get up close and personal, whilst the actual vehicle build gets underway at the team’s Bristol HQ.
Key members of the BLOODHOUND team will be on hand at Goodwood, with appearances and autograph sessions by reigning World Land Speed Record Holder, Andy Green OBE on both Saturday and Sunday. Green will be at the controls of BLOODHOUND SSC when the bid to raise the record to 1,000mph begins next year.
For STP, whose market-leading fuel additives will be used in BLOODHOUND SSC, the Goodwood Festival of Speed is a fitting arena in which to showcase the brand’s long heritage in motorsport.
This year celebrates the 50th anniversary of STP’s first bid for the World Land Speed Record by American, Athol Graham. Six years later, fellow STP barnstormer, Art Arfons, raised the record to 576mph on the famed Bonneville salt flats, USA.
2009 also celebrates the 40th anniversary of Mario Andretti’s victory for STP of one of motorsport’s blue riband events, the Indy 500, at the wheel of the Lotus-Ford.
STP’s range of fuel additives – for optimum engine performance – and engine maintenance products, are available from all good forecourts and accessory shops. For more information, visit www.stp.eu. For the latest on BLOODHOUND SSC, follow www.bloodhoundssc.com.
