F1 in Schools is a worldwide competition, where teams have to design a scaled F1 car that they have designed using CAD added software.

Through the hard work of the team members, Ellen Godley, Ciara Ryan, Dean Power, Ross McMahon and Seán Grennan, ‘Team Hornet’ have made it through to the National Final which will be held in Dublin on April 26. 

‘Team Hornet’ went up against twenty other schools on March 15 in Griffith College, Dublin and were one of six teams that made it through to the National Final.

‘Team Hornet’ have been working for the past six months and they have begun perfecting their car, improving their 20 page plan and working on a new display to wow the judges at the National Final.

As the Nationals are fast approaching, ‘Team Hornet’ is now looking for sponsorship to help them in the National Final on April 26.
