Team excels at Greenpower International Finals

Congratulations to the Greenpower race car team for their fantastic performance at the Greenpower International Finals on Sunday 8 October at Goodwood Motor Circuit.

With a combination of bright sunshine, Spitfires taking off in the background and a buzz of activity, the team secured 17th out of a competitive field of 49 participants. This was a a fantastic achievement, especially after beating more established teams and many other top London schools.

Our team overcame a battery fault after the first race, built resilience and decided to take a risk to adjust the gearing. This proved to be successful, and they were able to go at a higher speed and cover more miles within the 90-minute timeframe.

As the racing season progresses, we offer our best wishes to the team for continued success and look forward to witnessing their impressive journey unfold.

The Greenpower race car project is one of the School’s STEAM initiatives that has been made possible thanks to the Lyonian Association’s 1876 Fund.

Congratulations to the team, led by Mr du Plessis, comprising Joshua (9MRF), William (8BRD), Adam (8CJC), Ollie (9MRF), Tanav (9JOC), Imaan (7CCN), Mattice (9AJM), Niam (8CJC), Shayan (8KS), Shahryar (9JOC), Sulayman (10MLC) and Mikhail (10MLC).
