We are one of the Chipping Sodbury School Greenpower teams. Our team of pupils have designed, developed, built and tested an energy efficient battery powered racing car. The team includes members from Year 7 up to Year 11.
Throughout the year, the team attends races at top racing circuits, including Goodwood, Silverstone and Dunsfold.
We meet every Monday evening along with our parents and one of our Design & Technology teachers from Chipping Sodbury School to work on our car. Between races, we make upgrades and modifications to the car to improve our performance. We receive no funding from the school and all of our parents give up their time for free.
In 2022 we came 21st in our Formula nationally and are performing well in the 2023 season.
