Greenpower F24 project

As part of the Greenpower F24 race, Croft circuit welcomed North Durham Academy’s engineering students. This was an inaugural race event for NDA, that enabled our engineering and motor vehicle students to engage with the build and race of their car.

During the build students faced many obstacles, but through dedication and focus the students overcame these hurdles to achieve a fantastic outcome. Our team were awarded Best newcomer 2019 & Spirit of Greenpower 2019.

The project has inspired our young people and revealed how engineering is such a valued career choice and the many benefits that come with it. 

Through their post-race evaluation, the students are looking forward to the racing season 2019/2020, and have the vision to further develop and improve the car.  They are also looking to engage with the wider community to help support the project.
