School pupils from across the United Kingdom have fought off fierce competition from over 300 schools to compete for the National Title at BETT 2005 - Europe’s largest educational technology show - London, Olympia on the 12th of January 2005.
These engineers of the future have competed at regional level with their CO2 powered model cars, racing their team’s car and presenting their design ideas and development to a panel of judges.
At National level the competition moves up a gear especially with the introduction of the new R-TYPE class. Just like an F1 Grand Prix, these teams and their cars are put through their paces one more time, focussed on winning the Overall National Jaguar F1 in Schools UK title, tickets to the British Grand Prix and a VIP visit to Jaguar production and manufacturing facilities in Coventry and the West Midlands.
Founder and Chairman, Andrew Denford said: "The National Final is shaping up to be the best ever, not just with the fast times of the cars, also in the quality of the teams, their increasing ingenuity and the confidence these engineers of the future are showing."
Prizes will be awarded for the overall winner, winners in each age group, the best engineered car, best team sponsorship and marketing and the fastest car. The overall winning team of the championship season will go on to compete internationally.Published 8 January 2005
