Lights out for Worcester school as they race to success in Formula 1 challenge

IT WAS lights out for Worcester’s next set of Lewis Hamilton’s as they raced into the national finals of the Formula 1 in Schools challenge.

The King’s Worcester School’s Prism Racing team finished top of the F1 in Schools Professional Class in the regional final at Aston University.

The event was attended by over 350 students from across the region who formed teams of three to six people to compete for a place on the F1 in Schools podium.

They will now journey to the UK National Finals, which will take place at the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham next month.

Should Prism Racing go on to achieve success at that tournament, they will be in with a chance of competing at the Aramco F1 in Schools World Finals.

The global competition is held annually alongside an international F1 Grand Prix.

Winners will also receive a full scholarship to study Mechanical Engineering at Aston University.

In the tournament, students create their own version of an F1 team, with each youngster taking on different roles such as designing the car, manufacturing, testing or branding it or becoming Team Principal.

Once they had developed their car and project work, the students raced their cars against other teams.

They are also tasked with presenting to a team of judges, comprised of industry professionals or F1 team members.
