Our Year 10 students took part in their first Greenpower Race this term. It was an achievement to make the race and getting the car through scrutineering (like an MOT) is a massive challenge. The day was quite eventful and despite the chain falling off in the first race and our car crashing out with a broken steering column in the second, the students were able to pull together as a team fix the car and get it back out on track. Due to the car needing to be in the pits for a large chunk of the races we weren’t able to score highly but still came 41st out of 55.
We’re pretty confident that with some minor improvements the team will perform much better in the next set of races in September.
