On Friday 12th June, Hazlehead Academy took part in the Greenpower F24 Car Challenge with our ‘Mystery Machine’ and returned with two trophies – ‘Fastest Newcomer’ and ‘Best Portfolio’- a tremendous achievement!
Fifteen secondary schools participated in the race, which took place at the Grampian Transport Museum Track. There were two heats, each lasting 90 minutes, and the aim was to complete as many laps as possible.
We are very grateful to our sponsors – Lockheed Martin, Balmoral Group and T.I. Alexander for enabling us to take part in the project, which pupils began last October.
Our pupils demonstrated exemplary teamwork skills. Everyone enjoyed a memorable day and are already planning for next year’s race! Our photos show the ‘Mystery Machine’ in action and a team photo at the end of the day.
