Six school teams head off to the F1 in Schools World UK National Finals from the North East Region.

 

Shockwave F1 from Emmanuel College, Gateshead, took First place in the F1 Class of this F1 in Schools Regional Finals. Second and third placed teams, Kaizen Racing from Newcastle Royal Grammar School and Aerocomplex from Discovery School, Newcastle also win places at the National Finals. They are joined by Horizon, St Cuthberts High School, Newcastle, newcomers to the F1 in Schools competition who were awarded first place in the F1 Rookie Class, Unity, Emmanuel College, Newcastle who took First place in the Bloodhound Class 11 – 14 years and Dynamic Dolphins, Norman Street School, Carlisle, First place Bloodhound Class 9 – 11 years winners.

 

Shockwave F1 said of competing in F1 in Schools, “We weren’t expecting to win as there were so many good teams today. But the result is a reflection of the work we’ve put into it. It’s been hard work finding the time to work together as a team, but we’ve enjoyed it. We’ll do more testing and make more improvements for the National Finals.”

 

Horizon were delighted to win and said of the competition, “I’m really happy and surprised, shocked that we won. We never thought we’d make it this far. We’ll probably have a complete re-design for the National Finals, with a new car, new portfolio, new marketing campaign, and we’re looking forward to it.”

 

Unity said, “We’re shocked we’ve won and we’re going to make some changes to our car for the Nationals. We worked hard as a team and it’s great to be going to the Nationals.”

 

Dynamic Dolphins added, “We feel very excited, happy and proud that our team won today. We thought our presentation was really good, but we’ll work on our sponsorship and make our car more aerodynamic for the National Finals.”
