Secured by Thawte

The issue encapsulates the engineering quality associated with the project and reflects the advancement by including 3 special print surfaces; metal ink, varnish and thermochromic ink, which disappears when warmed up to expose the interior of the BLOODHOUND car.

There are 2 stamps exposing the BLOODHOUND car and 2 labels, one shows the well-known Richard Noble and present world record holder Andy Green, BLOODHOUND's driver. Behind the images lie technical line drawings highlighting that this is a showcase of the engineering expertise involved, in addition to the aspiration of setting brand-new records.

The vehicle includes parts created and developed in the Isle of Man, such as a vital regulator developed by Swagelok which plays a vital function in the vehicle's fuel system, together with other functions, and this release commemorates that link. The connection was strengthened in September 2017 when the BLOODHOUND team went to the Isle of Man to speak with secondary school pupils, with the goal of inspiring the next generation of engineers to make the most of the training opportunities and profession courses easily offered in the Island.
