NEWS // SIP ARE PROUD PRODUCT SPONSORS OF BLOODHOUND SSC
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.

With such a large project, we thought it would be best to send a range of our best equipment to help make sure that all concerned with the Bloodhound SSC project are covered. This includes range of battery boosters/chargers, heaters, and more.

by SIP Marketing
SIP Industrial Products were privileged to receive a visit last week from the MP for our local constituency, Loughborough, Nicky Morgan, pictured here with our Marketing Manager Richard Fothergill, at our HQ 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. These included local issues, innovation, the local and wider economy, 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 with premium machinery.

NEWS // SIP IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BAD OBSESSION MOTORSPORT
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. Click the image to view their series now!

Read more... Project Binky involves transforming a 1980 Mini 1000, with a goal of creating one of the fastest Minis of it's kind on the planet. In their words, this Mini will be a 'Frankenstein's monster of a car'. The goal? To create a Mini that just looks like a fast Mini.

However, 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 work to be done. Furthermore, the Mini cannot be lenghtened or widened, with the exception of the arches. We wish our friends at BOM all the best for the project, and look forward to seeing the results.
