F1 in Schools

30 Jun 2017

You may have heard about the team from Ysgol Brynrefail that will be representing Wales at the F1 in Schools World Championship Finals in Malaysia in September. As ‘Team Falcon Force Wales’, the six year 10 students were crowned Welsh Champions at the UK National Championship in Silverstone.

The World Finals will be held during the week leading up to the Malaysia Grand Prix and the challenge facing the girls (yes, it’s an all-female team) is to raise about £17,000 in sponsorship to fund this once in a lifetime experience.

C&A Motor Club chairman Huw Gwyn Jones and treasurer Dafydd Edwards attended a presentation given by the team on 29th June and were pleased to make a contribution to their fund on behalf of the club. They have made significant strides towards raising the necessary finance, but if you know of anyone who could give further support the contact details are:

Team Manager

Eleanor Edwards-Jones

Head of the Design and Technology Faculty

Paul P Griffiths

We congratulate them on their success so far and wish the best of luck to the team of Eleanor, Beca, Elin, Tesni, Jess and Anna, and their teacher, Mr Paul Griffiths.
