Pearce Bros Sponsor a Local School
Greenpower is an organisation designed to get young people into engineering
The school purchased a “goblin” kit and a group of 12 pupils in year 6 formed an after school club to build and race the car
They wrote letters to businesses for sponsorship and managed to finance the entire purchase, build, uniforms, tools and race entry fees from this
They constructed the kit and then designed and built the bodywork which had to be made from recycled materials
In the Thunders case recycled For Sale boards
They designed the logo and branded their overalls along with the car
The team attended their first meeting at Renishaw’s Wootton under edge on 18/05/2019 where the “Frampton Thunder” was entered along with 20 other cars
Each car had to pass scrutineering and the teams each submitted a portfolio of the build
There were heats,
6 drag race and 6 slalom each individually timed and the fastest from each being submitted to the judges
After lunch the cars raced around a short circuit three at a time in a winner takes all knockout
Semi-finals and a grand final followed until a winner was declared
There were 5 additional awards of which the Frampton C of E School took two
Best turned out team
Pearce Brothers sponsored the team by providing a Transit van to carry the car and all the associated tools to and from the event which was fantastic as we were able to take everything we needed and it kept all of the kit secure and dry and made our pit look one of the best on the day
Thank you so much for your help
