F1 in Schools Update

This season we are sponsoring 'Mach 1' F1 in Schools team, based at Lutterworth College, who have just sent us this exciting new update & we're really pleased to share it with you:

"Here are some photos of the final car on ProDesktop with all of our sponsors names on. If you look at the wheels you can see where your bearings are situated. Your logo is in a prime position for all of the photos and videos taken of the car because the cars go so fast the only place you can take a photo is when it is at the start and the crowd will be in front of the car so the main focus point is the front aerofoils (where your logo is situated).

I also have a big smb thing planned for the stand which is hard to explain but i will send you photos when i make it.
Ps. The car is being cut out as we speak"

Thanks guys - how cool is that?! We can't wait to see the finished article & look forward very much to finding out what the intriguing "big thing" for the stand is... ;0)

For those of you who haven't heard about the F1 in Schools competition before, here's what it's all about:

Spanning age ranges of 9 to 19, F1 in Schools teams must raise sponsorship and manage budgets to fund research, travel and accommodation. The challenge inspires students to use IT to learn about physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacture, branding, graphics, sponsorship, marketing, leadership/teamwork, media skills and financial strategy, and apply them in a practical, imaginative, competitive and exciting way. The race is then on, literally! Completed cars race side-by-side along 20-metre straights. Teams are judged on car speed, as well as supporting evidence of their design, verbal presentation and marketing display stand in ‘‘the pits”. Teams compete regionally, nationally and internationally for the Bernie Ecclestone F1 in Schools World Championship trophy.
