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 were held in Singapore in September.
F1 in schools is an international STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) competition to design and race a model F1 car. These cars are powered by a CO2 canister and are raced down a straight 20m track. Teams are judged in a wide variety of categories including presentations, portfolios, pit display and racing. This year at the world finals we will be competing against 51 teams from 24 different countries.
The team have just finished competing in Singapore. It was an amazing experience and we all loved it! We are so proud of how far we have come as a team and our performance at the world finals. We achieved the 8th fastest car with a time of 1.044 seconds. Overall we placed 40th!
