Our “Rocket Royale” team attended the NEC, Birmingham for the F1 In Schools National Finals 2023. The team ended the day being awarded 2nd place in the UK! An amazing achievement by a very talented team.
The team began the day by setting up their Pit which was full of posters, photographs and texts put together throughout the team’s experience. The team then were set and ready to race, racing against Team Phoenix. Then moving on to a verbal presentation about each team member’s roles, their thoughts behind the process of designing the car and answering questions from the F1 judges. Team Rocket Royale then visited the Design and Engineering judges where they presented their portfolio created by the team in preparation for this. Finally, the team welcomed two F1 judges to their pit to discuss their detailed and colourful pit!
The team have worked really hard over the last year with the support of Miss Burdett to make this possible and really deserved the award which was presented to them by the Founder and Chairman of F1 in Schools UK, Andrew Denford.
An entertaining and enjoyable day was had by the team and parents who showed up to support their children.
