The Official F1 in Schools products have been developed and manufactured in the UK with lead Engineering designer, Steve Oddy, Technical Director of Denford Ltd, masterminding the launch range. He says of today’s announcement, “We’ve worked hard to develop the next generation of F1 in Schools equipment that meets the needs of schools and students, especially with the lightweight, portable track system and the Start Gate with its clear display and data storage functionality. The Air Trace Visualisation System will also be a valuable asset for aerodynamic capability analysis and demonstrating this in the classroom. We’re excited to be launching the range and delivering it to our global markets.”
