SPEEDY pupils at two Kenilworth schools have raced through to the national finals of the F1 into Schools – Jaguar Primary School Challenge

The ‘Speed Specialists’ from Priors Field Primary School and ‘Firecrackers’ from Crackley Hall School came first and second respectively in the Warwickshire Regional Final held at Princethorpe College.

The challenge is open to pupils aged five to 11 and involves designing and manufacturing the fastest car possible following the design and engineering processes employed by real engineering companies.

At the regional final pupils presented their designs and then raced the cars they had built down a special 20-metre-long track. The cars were propelled using compressed air gas canisters and travelled the distance in a matter of seconds.

The national final takes place at the British Motor Museum at Gaydon on June 11.
