On Thursday 7 and Friday 8 October; Team Marl1n took part in the (Remote) F1 in Schools UK National Finals. They raced their model F1 car and met with the presenters via Zoom answering questions about their team and the special aerodynamic features of the car. Using the excellent reaction times submitted by Rian and Kai, the car performed well and beat its opponent in two of the four races.
In the awards ceremony on Friday Team Marl1n were announced 2nd Place in the F1 in Schools UK National Finals. Hundreds of schools have taken part this year in order to get to the finals, so this is an outstanding achievement.
Marl1n were also awarded the prestigious Research and Development Award by Alpine F1 based in Oxfordshire. As part of the award, they will receive a one-day VIP tour of the Alpine F1 centre in Oxfordshire, as well as a bespoke trophy made by the Alpine F1 Team.
Well done, Team Marl1n! We are very proud of your hard work, immense dedication and excellent team work.
