National Final

All the teams at the Silverstone Wing                                                                                                           We had a fantastic couple of days at Silverstone on 29th-30th March competing in the National final of the F1 in schools challenge. Our cars performed very well finishing 6th on the track. We came 14th overall against 29 other teams from all over the UK. As you can see in the photo’ we managed to bring a trophy home with us, it’s the Judges Recommendation trophy which is awarded to the team that the Judges think show great promise and performed very well in all disciplines. It was really great to win a trophy after all our hard work (most teams returned home empty handed), and the fact that we were amongst the youngest competitors. The whole experience was very inspiring and being able to scrutinise all the other teams’ displays makes us realise the standard that needs to be attained to win and encourages us to do better next time.
