Indian-Origin Beverly Singh (29), a mechanical engineer from Port Elizabeth, became a part of the team of specialist engineers building the fastest car of the world in the UK. The fastest car of the world will be called the Bloodhound supersonic car.
The role of Beverly Singh will be to design the Bloodhound supersonic car which is being created by the team of around 30 engineers in the high-tech centre near Bristol. The Bloodhound supersonic car is the rocket-powered car which will come to South Africa first in the year 2015 for test runs that will be conducted for several months. The car will break the sound barrier and current land speed record of 1228 km/h.
In the year 2016, this car will also try to set the record of 30 percent faster than 1228km/h record, 1609 km/h. Beverly Singh won the Bloodhound Chevening Scholarship for her masters in mechanical engineering at the University of West of England. She will become the part of this team in September 2013. She will work along with the engineers from world-established companies such as Rolls-Royce and Boeing, who have the responsibility of assembling this car.
Beverly Singh explained that the engineers who are working on the Bloodhound supersonic car are the best ones in the world. She however, also explained that she did not know exactly her work area on the Bloodhound supersonic car project. The test runs as well as record attempts will happen at the Hakskeenpan in the Northern Cape Province.
