Well done to both Fire Dragon and Speed Eagle teams in the F1 in Schools IRL National Final competition in Galway, where they planned, designed, created and analysed a miniature F1 Car. It was brilliant watching the two teams race against each other. The students done brilliantly in the F1 in Schools this year.
Both teams performed outstanding on the day selling their Teams brand. Team Speed Eagles car ran flawlessly all day and was one of the fastest cars on the day! Unfortunately team Fire Dragon suffered an axel breakage on its third race knocking it out of competition, but, it didn’t hold them back as they done brilliant presentations explaining the whole story of how they got to the National Finals.
We are so proud of both Fire Dragon and Speed Eagles, Both teams really impressed the judges at the verbal presentation and enterprise and engineering interview. They really showed their skills and knowledge on the day, making our School very proud!
Speed Eagle was placed 19th place out of the top 42 teams and Fire Dragon was placed 30th place out of the top 42 teams.
