Wisbech Grammar School’s youngsters compete at car-racing competition final
YOUNGSTERS at Wisbech Grammar School competed in the national finals of an electric car racing competition.
The school’s new-look racing team secured sponsorship from Williams Refrigeration to take their two aluminium cars to the endurance competition in the Greenpower event at Goodwood.
Ten drivers and two pit crew members were kitted out in specially designed race gear, including gloves, karting suits and baseball caps thanks to the King’s Lynn firm’s sponsorship.
The team’s TwinCambs 1 car finished 67th out of 75 finishers after completing 69.6 miles while TwinCambs 2 finished 56th with a total mileage of 74.4 miles.
Rob Frost, the school’s head of design technology, said it had been “excellent to see staff, parents and pupils working so effectively together”.
