RAPID RAVENS - F1 in Schools National Final 2022
Design & Technology students from Leasowes High School competed at the F1 in School National Final 2022 at the NEC, Birmingham. The year 10 team ‘RAPID RAVENS’ qualified as Champions from the central region event and advanced to the National Final to compete against the best 20 teams/schools in the UK at development class level (age 11-19). The national final was a two-day event 12/01/23 - 13/01/23, the teams had the challenge to design, build (using CAD/CAM), test and race a miniature F1 car. The teams were judged in a number of categories including scrutineering, engineering, verbal presentation, pit display, social media and enterprise portfolio, as well as the car’s speed being tested on the Official F1 in Schools track.
We are delighted to announce that the Rapid Ravens were awarded the Fastest Car trophy, as their car recorded the quickest time at 1.353 seconds, an outstanding achievement at National level.
As a school, Leasowes have participated in the competition for a number of years. This team initially formed two years ago, when they were crowned central region Entry Class Champions. The team have worked extremely hard on designing the car, raising sponsorship, developing designs, testing and racing, on top of the normal demands of school work.
Mr Chatterton, Head of Design & Technology at Leasowes commented:
“The F1 in Schools competition is widely regarded as the most prestigious and exciting school competition worldwide. At Leasowes High School we have been competing for a number of years, winning many awards at both regional and national levels. My congratulations to the outstanding team Rapid Ravens, we are immensely proud of them, they deserved this achievement as they have worked tirelessly all year. They have been incredibly driven, dedicated and the standard of their work is truly exceptional”.
