Good Luck to Our Energy Efficient Racers


The Girton Racing Team is the only school team in Australia to be selected to compete in the Shell Eco Marathon, an international competition of Energy Efficient Vehicles (EEV), and this weekend they will head off to Manila to pit themselves against the best teams in the world.

 

The team will attempt to go as far as they can on as little fuel as possible in a series of events that challenge and measure efficiency in design, innovation, teamwork and skill.

 

The race is the culmination of 2 years of hard work from Ben Pignataro (11 Frew), Lucas Kirby (12 Jenkin) and Alexander Holmes (12 Jenkin), supported by Lucas’ father, Robin and their teacher Mr Rod Smith, Girton’s Head of Technology.

 

We wish the team all the very best at this prestigious event and congratulate them on this incredible achievement.
