GreenPower Event at Rockingham

On the 1st July, Mr Mountford took a team of Engineers from Y7 – Y10 to Rockingham Race Circuit to compete in GreenPower Formula 24 race. They raced the ‘Haywood Rocket’ GreenPower car, which they have been working on after school on a Thursday every week, over 90 minutes around the circuit to see how many laps they could complete. They finished second fastest kit car on the day, which puts the team in a good position for the National Final Qualification in October. The students worked as a team with various roles from Drivers, Mechanics and Pit Crew to produce an excellent result. The students were:

  • Lucas Cartwright y7
  • Jamal Rasoul y7
  • Ethan Burton y7
  • Ben Dutton y10
  • Dean Watkin y10
  • Sam Brook y10
  • Mitchell Underhill y10
  • Michael Hastings y10
  • Jack Gamble y10
  • Brandon Mayer y10
