Neutrino from UTC Plymouth took the honours in the F1 Class of the competition, with Bullet Racing from PETROC, Plymouth in second place and close behind in third it was Ionise from Colyton Grammar School, Colyford.

 

Neutrino were delighted to win and said of the competition, “We’re pretty happy winning five awards. We’re looking forward to the National Finals and competing against other teams from around the UK. We’re going to work on our pit display for that as well as other areas. The car was faster than we expected, so we think that put us ahead of the rest.”

 

Bullet Racing said of competing in F1 in Schools, “We feel really happy and overwhelmed that we came second, as we thought our car was slightly overweight. We competed last year but I think the design changes brought us this success. We’ll definitely make the car lighter for the National Finals, but we’ll keep our pit display as we think that was a strong part of our entry.”

 

Ionise enjoyed the Regional Finals, saying, “We’re amazed that we’ve pulled together such a performance with so little time and money for this project. There are definitely parts of our car that we can improve for the National Finals. Our pit display could also be improved especially if we can pull in some more sponsors. We think our car design gave over our competitors despite our restricted budget.“
