Revved-up youngsters tribute to motoring history

Leamington Editorial 9th Mar, 2022   0

REVVED-UP youngsters have paid a colourful tribute to some local motoring history.

Two imaginative pupils from Lighthorne Heath Primary School won a supercar design competition organised by Barratt Homes.

With the housebuilder’s Aston Grange development situated just down the road from the British Motor Museum in Gaydon, Barratt Homes wanted to help the pupils of Lighthorne Heath celebrate the historical link.

Pupils Eily and Maggie were the winners of the competition and will see their designs printed and framed in the Aston Grange sales centre, in addition to each of them receiving tickets to visit the British Motor Museum.

Tanya Silk, sales director at Barratt Homes West Midlands, said: “The British Motor Museum offers a valuable insight to the industrial history of the country with the world’s largest collection of British cars. The pupils of Lighthorne Heath Primary School have paid fantastic homage to this with their beautiful designs.

“We received a variety of imaginative and creative entries as part of the design a supercar competition and it was a difficult task choosing the winners, however we hope this project has inspired the imaginations of the children involved.”
