AR Digital along with our client Bisley, not to mention Total Workwear and Farmbank Ltd. have had the pleasure of sponsoring Lliswerry High’s electric car racing team at the Greenpower Challenge. Greenpower Education Trust is a charity which gets young people enthusiastic about STEM subjects by challenging them to design, build, and race an electric car. When Team Falcon rolled out their new F24 kit car for the 2019 tournament, we were thrilled to see so many young women in the team, pursuing their interest in engineering!
It was an early start on Sunday 23rd of June as the team left school bright and early, ready for the big day at Castle Combe race circuit in Chippenham. Our team took part in two separate heats, hoping to cover enough distance in the 90-minute race to qualify for the final in Silverstone. Though, unfortunately we were unsuccessful in qualifying on this occasion, it was a proud moment when we caught a glimpse of our AR Digital logo on the side of the car as it whizzed around the track.
Furthermore, we did not leave disappointed as the Falcon Team received the award for Best Presented Team from Reinshaw, the event sponsors. And it’s full steam ahead as preparations for next year’s race are already in place. From September, the team will be running fortnightly after-school sessions to re-think, re-design and re-build the car.
