Teamwork makes Greenpower Go
Those who have been following the changes in Formula 1 racing over the last few years will be aware that this is now about producing a fast car and also about managing the race strategy to sustain race pace. This was also evident in the season opener for the Greenpower racing team where the team of Year Eight to Ten boys and girls worked superbly together to tackle the first race of the year with great organisation and determination.
The car settled into a competitive pace and the team established the car in a promising 12th place after the first hour of the race. From that point their competitors struggled with the pace of the race and the car steadily moved up rankings to finish in a fabulous sixth place; a testament to the speed of the car but also of the careful managing of the race by the team. The team came away knowing that they had done really well and looking forward to doing even better next time out.
