Aardman Animations has joined forces with the Bloodhound Project in a world land speed record attempt. ...
In an unlikely partnership, one of the film industry’s slowest production studios is to throw its weight behind a new project to create the world’s fastest car.
Aardman Animations, the company behind the ever-popular stop-motion productions ‘Wallace and Gromit’ – which takes hours to move the characters a couple of inches – has joined forces with the Bloodhound Project in a world land speed record attempt aiming to inspire young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
In an announcement at the recent Toy Fair in London, Aardman representatives revealed that the studio has secured exclusive rights to represent the venture worldwide. Aardman also announced that it had made a deal with Hornby to build replica scale models of the Bloodhound car to be used in the attempt.
