IN PICTURES: The Weald School win Greenpower International Finals

THOUSANDS of competitors and spectators turned out at Goodwood Motor Circuit on Sunday, October 12, for the inaugural Greenpower Education Trust International Final.

The hugely popular event – which has gone international for the first time – saw a team of budding engineers from The Weald School in Billingshurst claim victory in the 11 to 16-year-olds category, the IET Formula 24.

Having designed, built and then raced their electric car to the title they won back in 2006, the school were rightly delighted.

Weald driver Lucy Kirkby, 14, said: “Every part of doing Greenpower has been fun – making the car and designing it means we get familiarised with machinery, which is good, plus the racing is really fun.”
