Our Story

We are Team AcceleRace, an all-girl team from Linlithgow Academy representing the UK in the World Finals of  "F1 in Schools".  Our team members include;

Louise Paterson  -  Team Manager 

Isla Petrie  -  Design Engineer 

Louise Murray  -  Graphic Designer

Molly Ganner  -  Manufacturing Engineer 

Aoife Sutton  -  Resources Manager


On the 19th of March we represented Scotland at the UK Finals, held at the home of British motorsport - Silverstone racetrack.  We were able to win 1st Place in Development Class as well as the award for Fastest Car. By winning, we qualified to represent the UK at the F1 In Schools World Finals, which will be held in Singapore in September.

What Is F1 in Schools?

F1 in Schools is a global STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) competition to design and race a model F1 car. Teams  have to design their car using 3D CAD tools, while following the regulations set by the international rules committee, before manufacturing their car using CAM software. Teams also have to create two portfolios, a verbal presentation and pit display, as well as creating a business plan which includes gaining sponsorship and links with businesses to help them progress through the competition.

We would love if you could help us by donating to our fund page. We will be closing this page a couple of weeks prior to leaving for Singapore which means that we don't have long left to reach our target. We greatly appreciate any donations - big or small and we would like to thank anyone that has donated so far!
