We’re really excited about going to the Nationals and the possibility that we could get to Singapore – that would be amazing.”


Zoom were delighted to win and said of the competition, “We’re very excited to be going to the National Finals. Our design and engineering gave us the edge over our competition we think. We’re hoping we’ll have a good chance of winning at the Nationals, but we think it will be quite tough.”


Black Ice Racing added, “We’re very proud. Our team worked really hard, so that paid off. It’ll be hard work to win the Nationals, but we’ll try our hardest, especially if we could get to Singapore. We’ll change our car design for the Nationals to make it go faster and hopefully he can win.”


Dream Team were surprised to win through to the Nationals, saying, “We were quite confident of winning, but when another team were faster than us we thought we wouldn’t get through. Now we want to win in Birmingham. We’ll make quite a few changes for the Nationals, improving our car and our display.”
