Greenpower at Goodwood Racetrack

On Sunday the 10th of June six students from the Leigh UTC took part in the the biggest race of the Greenpower race calendar so far. Greenpower is an international competition which requires students to design, build and then race and electric racing car. The event, which was held at Goodwood Racetrack and featured over 100 schools from around the country. Our students competed in both of the races, working as a team to perform fixes to the car, change over batteries and manage driver changes. The students placed in the top half of the country overall, and inside the top 20 for their vehicle class. They were also the highest placed UTC. A great achievement for their first time running a new and untested Greenpower car.
