Prep School / Tuesday, May 16, 2017 F1 team in National Final

On Monday 15 May The Glasgow Academy hosted the Scottish Region Finals for the Jaguar/Landrover F1 in Schools Primary Challenge. Three teams were competing: Sonic Boom and 2FAST4LAST from The Glasgow Academy and Fast 'n' Feisty from Lomond School. With only two places available in the National Finals, competition was intense.

There were four awards to collect, with TGA's Sonic Boom collecting 'Best Engineered Car' and 2FAST4LAST gaining the most sought after of the awards - 'Fastest Car'. After an intense wait whilst the judges deliberated, Sonic Boom and Fast 'n' Fiesty were invited to the National Finals which take place late in June.

The Academy's Sonic Boom are very proud of their achievement and the four team members - Daniel Burdon, Frances McGunnigle, Luke Mackenzie and Stefan Nilsson - are already making adjustments to their car in order to meet the tougher challenges ahead.
