Papplewick's boy racers follow in Lewis Hamilton's footsteps in electric kart rally at Seaford College!

6th June 2018

In their kart built in the D&T workshop, three year 6 boys won 'best presentation of a kart' and 'overall winner of the time trial slalom' competitions.

Three Papplewick boys raced their very own electric kart this weekend at Seaford College last weekend. The event was organised by Greenpower Education Trust who is a UK based charity which gets young people enthusiastic about science and design technology by challenging them to design, build and race an electric car.

Upon construction of their kart, the boys tested the ‘Papplewick Shark’ on the school playing fields in preparation for slalom, drag races and pit-stop time trials at Seaford College. All three boys took turns racing their kart against 26 other karts and ultimately won two prizes: Best Presentation of a Kart and overall winner of the Time Trial Slalom competition. A splendid day was had by all.
