Hello, it's Javier, back with a final update before our Regional finals! The good news is that we managed to successfully submit everything on time for the deadline and are looking forward to competing later next month. I am very excited to see what everyone has produced and how all of our cars perform in the races!
The ARAMCO F1 in Schools 2020(21) World Finals took place last week and a massive congratulations goes to Britannia Red from Robert Mays School for becoming 2020 World Champions; it is great that the trophy is in the UK for another year! Well done guys! The event was inspiring, we hope that one day we may be good enough to get to a world finals. The F1 in Schools team did a great job putting on an enjoyable experience for all involved, competitors and spectators.
Lastly, we would like to thank all of our readers and Mark Wemyss-Holden for offering us the opportunity to write the blog in order to help out the F1 in Schools community. Thank you very much for reading, we hope you have enjoyed seeing our progress and the odd piece of advice we have given. We hope to give you an update after the Regional Finals to see what's next for the team.
UP NEXT: What's next for Eclipse after the Regional Finals?...
Hi everyone, Maisie again. We are getting close! The final run up to the submission deadline is here. Now Evie and my exams are over, we are working non-stop on getting everything completed and adding the final touches. Looking at what needs to be done and making sure it is done to the best standards.
Now that the verbal presentation is complete, that's been something checked off our long, lengthy checklist which gives us some hope in completing everything in time. It seems daunting but everything will be done in the end if you put in the right amount of time and effort (to do your best).
Evie has been working tirelessly on the Enterprise portfolio and it is well underway to near completion. The final touches need to be done, for example those tiny figure number details. For myself, I have been completing the graphics for the pit display and getting it ready for the pit video ready for the final submission. As a team we need to do that soon and a script needs to be made.
Tom and Javier have completed the car! The CAD model has been prepared for the graphics and the whole team has finally been able to actually see the final product, especially after working on it for so long! This was sent off, as you may have seen on our social media (Instagram: @eclipse.gb / Twitter: @eclipseqe), in a nicely packaged box they made.
Regionals are running close but it is exciting to finally compete again, the 2020 Nationals seems like so long ago now. It’s just all the annoying details that need to be made.
UP NEXT: Javier’s will be back after we have submitted everything to let you know how it's gone and most importantly, what's next for Eclipse?
