Selected Form 3 and 4 Design and Technology pupils attended the Greenpower Kit Car Trials at Rockingham Motor Speedway last Wednesday.
The day’s events included race briefings as well as scrutinising and testing of cars developed throughout the off-season.
Oakham Design and Technology students are currently building their own electric car, having completed the major build element of it already. Testing is ongoing with the bodywork to follow in the coming months. Oakham will be looking to launch their car in the 2018 season.
Mr Banham, Teacher of Design and Technology, said, “This is a fantastic project for the students, as it creates interest and incorporates maths, engineering, design, teamwork, technology, problem solving and communication".
