On Wednesday 20th June the ‘Jo’s Jetters’ team made of Bethany Allin, Alicia Jasper, Michael Barton, James Law, Christopher Thorns and Alexander Hellyar, took their electric car to a rainy and windswept RAF St Mawgan. They were competing for the first time in the SW heats of the Cornwall College Greenpower Goblin Event against 65 other similar cars. The six drivers all competed in drag racing, slalom courses and a 3 lap race.
Competition was fierce and their nerve and driving skills were tested to the full. Jo’s Jetters came second place in the drag racing and at the end of the day were crowned the ‘Sout West Goblins Overall Winners 2012’. We are all extremely proud of the excellence, professionalism and enthusiasm they showed. They were very worthy winners.
Congratulations also go to Mr Turner and the Year 7 & 8 design & technology students for building such a reliable and trustworthy piece of equipment.
Jo’s Jetters hope to defend their title next year.
