Two of the school’s cars qualified for the event with “The 11th Hour” finishing 15th out of 39 starters and reaching as high as 10th at various points in the race. Truro High’s other qualifier, “The Phoenix Flyer” also ran well with Head of Science, Mr Dean, delighted with the way the girls organised themselves and their cars.
Thanking the team’s sponsors, Ellis Clowes and Parnalls Solicitors, for their support over the season, he said: “If you had seen the girls at Rockingham you too would have been proud. We had to do very little. They organised themselves, supported each other and prepared the cars and made any alterations they felt necessary. They took the cars to scrutiny and passed with flying colours.”
It has been an astonishing season for the girls who hope to build on their achievements to gain even greater success next year. The dream of getting four cars into the international final is, according to Mr Dean, well within their grasp.
