Our F1 in Schools Team Ascension made it safely to Abu Dhabi, arriving early last Thursday morning. The engineers had worked non-stop over 24 hours preparing the race cars, after a setback earlier in the week - it was a huge effort!
On the weekend, Ascension were one of the first teams to register for the World Finals. Both cars were just over 50 g which was great. It is amazing to see so many countries at the one location competing in this prestigious event.
The weekend also saw the official opening of the World Finals for F1 in Schools, and the team built their Pit Display in one of the hotel rooms before transporting it 600 m to the Du Forum. It is great to have so many parents here to help carry this very large pit display! The students had two hours to rebuild the Pit Display to completion against 54 other teams from around the World. Each Pit Display build had an individual judge watching. Team Ascension completed their Pit Display and it looks fantastic. The team took up the whole two hours making, sure everything was spot on.
