Formula Force

We are Formula Force, and we are competing in the F1 in Schools Challenge. On April 17th, we became Scotland Regional Champions and awarded a place in the national finals. We also won Fastest Car, Best Engineered Car and Best Research and Development awards. We consist of 6 highly committed and hard working team members from Knox Academy, East Lothian. The team was brought together to enter and attempt to win an internationally recognised competition: F1 in Schools. We will be competing at Silverstone in the national finals in April. We then hope to represent the UK at the world finals, which is being held in Austin, Texas.
