F1 in Schools
RPD Racing have represented the school and Romania at the 2016 F1 in Schools world championships from Austin, Texas. F1 in Schools is the world's foremost STEM based challenge for students aged 11 - 19. The illustrious and fiercely contested event was held from the 16th - 18th of October 2016 and featured 39 teams from 23 countries. Over 20,000 students annually undertake the challenge, all hoping to reach these championships and the chance to be crowned of F1 in Schools World Champions.
RPD produced a competitive and assured performance over the three days, impressing judges with their technical knowledge, articulate expositions and professional manner. Alongside this, Finn, the team's manufacturing engineer, was recognised with an individual award for his work in the Autodesk Fusion Challenge.
The event, which was streamed worldwide on YouTube, also gave the team the opportunity to meet and network with some of the world's pre-eminent engineers, including high ranking officials from the world of F1.
With the 2016's world championship complete, attention now turns to the next generation of F1 competitors at BSB. Already the competition has grown, with more teams and students undertaking the challenge. The school's state of the art design and technology offer students the opportunity to truly engage with scientific minutiae of car design, and the mentorship of RPD Racing team members mean that all teams have the chance to excel. With this year's world championships taking place in Singapore, the hard work they put in is laying the foundations for great future achievements
