Adactus - F1 in Schools update...

We are proud sponsors of team "Adactus", who are competing in this year's F1 in Schools Championship.  The challenge involves teams of students, aged between 9 & 19, designing, analysing, manufacturing, testing, and then racing miniature gas powered balsa wood F1 cars,

We'd like to take this opportunity to wish them all the very best, as this Friday sees the team competing in the UK's Central regional finals at Loughborough University.

The team say: "We are currently competing in our fourth year of the competition and have recently changed out name from Mach1. In our first year we won Best New Team at the Central England Regional Finals, In our second year we came first at the Regional Finals which meant we qualified for the National Finals and In our third year we won Best Engineered Car, Fastest Car and First Place at the Regional Finals. At the National Finals we won Best Engineered Car and Second Place. We were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to collaborate with a Malaysian team to compete in the International Finals in Singapore under the name Team Fusion in 2010.

After taking a break for a year, the team is now competing with the strong intention to come first at the International Finals. The team has welcomed two new members this year and has had a complete makeover with a new team identity.

With new sponsors, new ideas and a new identity we are ready to achieve our goal and enjoy it!"

Well guys, we've sent our very best bearings out to you & we hope very much that they help you on the way to victory!  We can't wait to hear how you get on :0)
