The Berkswell and Balsall Common Sports and Community Association (BBCSCA) is a community membership club dedicated to providing high quality sports and leisure facilities for use by the residents of Berkswell and Balsall Common.
Three teams from Balsall Common Primary School had the chance to design and race their own F1 cars as part of a F1 in schools challenge.
12 Year 4 pupils worked in three teams to create the most aerodynamic cars possible. As well as making the cars, the teams had to secure sponsors, deliver presentations to a judging team and answer questions about their project. They were able to use the latest computer aided design technology and printers to make the cars. Then the teams raced the cars along a 20m track, powered by gas canisters, taking less than 1.5 seconds to cover the distance.
Team Turbo, Fire Blaze and Lightning Strike worked incredibly hard supporting each other, maximising their talents and building on the excellent support offered by Ian Dunning a designer from Jaguar Land Rover on hand to guide their work and gently suggest improvements.
