NEWS // SIP BECOME BLOODHOUND SSC PROUD PRODUCT SPONSORS
SIP Industrial Products are incredibly proud and excited to announce that we have recently agreed a partnership with the in-development Bloodhound SSC supersonic car and it's team. We recently sent them a batch of various premium equipment from our range to help them with their goal! We wish them all the best with the project, and look forward to seeing the results in the near future.

Read more... Bloodhound SSC are attempting to match or exceed 1,000 miles per hour (1,609km/h), shattering the current land speed record - currently held by one it's predecessors, ThrustSSC - by a comprehensive margin. To put this in perspective, the Bloodhound SSC will cover a mile in 3.6 seconds whilst weighing 7.5 Tons. It is powered by a jet engine and a rocket, which combined will generate more than 135,000hp. In their words, it's six times the power of all the Formula 1 cars on a starting grid put together.

NEWS // NICKY MORGAN MP VISITS SIP INDUSTRIAL HEADQUARTERS
SIP were privileged to receive a visit from the MP for our local constituency, Loughborough, Nicky Morgan, pictured here with our Marketing Manager, Richard Fothergill, at our headquarters in Shepshed. We were delighted to receive Mrs. Morgan for a full meet-and-greet and visit of our extensive sales, design, service and shipping facilities, as well as discussing several matters.

Read more... Matters discussed included local issues pertinent to our constituency, innovation, the local and wider economies, and more. The visit was informative and productive for both parties. We will continue to work hard to remain as the largest and most respected supplier of tools, equipment, and machinery in the Loughborough area, the region, and the United Kingdom, supplying local people across the country with premium machinery. Thank you again to Mrs. Morgan.

NEWS // SIP PARTNERS WITH BAD OBSESSION MOTORSPORT SERIES
We've proudly supplied some of our latest garage and automotive equipment to our friends at Bad Obsession Motorsport, who are leading race and rally specialists with over 50 years of experience, knowledge, and passion for motorsport. Their latest venture - lovingly named Project Binky - involves a custom-built and, hopefully, quick 1980 Mini 1000. You can click here to view their series now!

Read more... The catch is, the entire running gear, drive train, and all, from one Toyota Celica GT-Four will act as the internal components for the car. This also includes the 2.0L turbocharged engine, 4WD and all the transmission. So, you can see there is a lot of work to be done. Further more, the Mini cannot be lengthened or widened, with the exception of the arches. We wish our friends at Bad Obsession Motorsport all the best for the project and look forward to seeing the results in the future.
