Mosslands at Silverstone
As the North West Regional Winners of the Formula 1, Rookie Class Challenge, Mosslands Top Tier Racing team of Matthew Fitzpatrick, Alfie Egan, Matthew Noyce and Bradley Guy had an amazing opportunity to showcase their Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths skills at World famous historical race circuit of Silverstone at the UK National Final of the F1 in School Challenge.
After long days and nights preparing their car for one on one “car combat”, intense grilling by scrutineers and judges followed by fierce competition, the whole team said resoundingly yes they would do it all again but next time even better! “We have learnt so many skills that will help us in the future including, Enterprise – presentation and marketing skills, productive use of social media, business and project planning, fund raising skills, engineering and IT skills and Silvestone was just amazing I can’t wait for next year!”
The day was finished off unforgettably, when the team got a unique opportunity to be driven around the track! Some now claim that Mossland has the fastest mini bus in the country but perhaps corners such as Maggots, Stowe, and Becketts should be left to the experts. Top Tier Racing team can now boast to have been around the same circuit as Formula 1 racing legends such as Hamilton, Schumaker and Vettel, that’s not a bad return for putting extra effort into their STEM studies!
Many thanks to all those who have supported Top Tier racing and the organisers of such a terrific competition. And too all those who attended the F1 in School National Final at Silverstone remember, what happens at Silverstone stays at Silverstone!
