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.
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.
As we prepare for the F1 in Schools World final, we would like to redesign our car to make it faster and more aerodynamic. We would also like to improve other elements of the project such as our portfolios. We will also be looking for more sponsors to support us on our journey and help us on our road to Singapore.
We would greatly appreciate if you could support us by donating to our fund-page:
