The Glamour of Greenpower at Truro High School

Truro High Greenpower Racing Team swapped their overalls and helmets for sparkles and high heels as they gathered for a gala dinner to mark the end of an extremely successful season.

Black tie was the order of the day as fifty guests gathered at the Alverton Manor Hotel in Truro to mark the many highs and occasional lows of a busy racing year.

Guests included racing driver Luciano Bacheta who proved quite a hit with the young drivers.

The team were honoured to have several high profile guests presenting awards including James Robinson from Rebellion Le Mans/Proust, Annette Jenkin from FIA, and representatives from 2014/15 sponsors Ellis Clowes Motorsport Executive Olivia Curl and Security Broker Thomas King.

Guests enjoyed a delicious three course meal ahead of a series of awards that saw Charlotte Brown, Year 9, named Most Improved Driver, Dotty Squibb, Year 9, Most Dedicated Driver, Lexie Pan, Year 13, FE School Series driver and Mary Lau, Year 12, Fastest Driver.

The evening was hosted by Sixth Formers Zahra Dalal and Gaby Lau and has raised around £1,000 towards the costs of running the team.

The team had spent the day leading up to the event hosting their esteemed guests with a full tour of the school including an in depth look at what they are currently creating in the Greenpower workshop.

Luciano even got the chance to get behind the wheel of the team’s latest addition to their fleet, ‘The 11th Hour.’

The girls also proudly showed off their brand-new overalls kindly funded by the school’s PTA.

Head of Science Mr Jon Dean would like to give a huge thank you to Parnalls Solicitors and Ellis Clowes who have so generously sponsored the team over the last twelve months.
