The Greenpower Car Club took part in a race day at Dunton (Ford Technical Centre) in Basildon. The children were divided into two teams: 'Oakstars' and 'Electric Alligators'.
They competed against 12 other local schools and came 1st in the Sprint race, 3rd in the Slalom and Best Presented team with the 'Electric Alligators' coming 5th overall (with only 3 points separating them from 1st place) and 'Oakstars' coming 10th overall.
The children had an amazing day. They were well presented and showed great team spirit cheering each other on. We put up blue and white checked bunting and gave our spectators flags to wave and cheer the teams on.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed being involved in this project under the the guidance of Mr Stainsbury and Mr Hollywell who have given their time freely to enable this to happen. The children are getting really excited as they complete the final touches to their racing cars ready to compete against other schools on Saturday, 2nd May at Dunton.
The children have been divided into two teams: Team 'Oaksters' and Team 'Electric Alligator' and will compete in three challenges - Slalom,. Drag Racing and Sprint Race.
We are looking forward to an exciting day of racing - come on team Oakfield!
