Turbo from Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni, Anglesey, celebrated the Rookie Class victory. These five teams all win through to the F1 in Schools National Finals for their success.

Tachyon F1 were delighted to win and said of the competition, “We’re feeling amazing, on top of the world. I think it was the cutting edge technology with the innovations we had for the wheels and the rear wing which gave us the edge on our competition. We’re going to change bits of our pit display and tweak our portfolio for the National Finals.”

Limitless F1 said of the North Wales Regional Final, “It’s been a great day, meeting everyone and going for it in the races. We’re feelling very excited about going to the Nationals. We’re going to make some changes to the car to make it faster.”

Turbo said of competing in F1 in Schools, “We’ve done really well today. We’re going to work hard for the Nationals, and we’re going to improve our car. We’ve had our ups and downs as a team, but we’ve worked through them. We’ve enjoyed doing F1 in Schools.”

Vortex Racing added, “Our car was a bit slow today but we know why and will fix it for the National Finals. The whole day was a challenge but we coped well. Learning the design processes, using the software and making the car has been enjoyable. We’ll build on this and hope to build a better car.”
