“FLASHTASTIC”!

On Saturday 23rd April,’ Team Flash’ of DPS’s Kit Car Club cheered home with two trophies after competing at the Greenpower Goblin Race day event in Stevenage. DPS has been running an after school Kit Car Club for a number of years in which children assemble a battery powered go kart which can then be driven. The Greenpower Trust, which founded this initiative, aims to advance education in the subjects of sustainable engineering and technology to young people. Not only do the children have lots of fun in building a working go kart and racing it, they also learn and experience many inspiring aspects of STEM (science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).This was DPS’s first time entering into an organised event to compete with other schools in the county under ‘Team Flash’.

Inspired by the superhero ‘The Flash’ who happens to have lightning speed, our speedsters really got involved in the events at the Da Vinci Studio School with their fantastic looking car. The day started with a great turn out of enthusiastic children, parents and school staff. After being scrutinised for safety and meeting Greenpower regulations, the races were on their way. The first event was the drag race which was all about speed in a straight line. Team flash didn’t let their super hero down when they sped to first place in that race. Next up was the slalom, a real test of driving skills in and out of cones. Although our drag champions didn’t win this race, they did however bring more excitement to the event when the flash mobile speedily bolted into the barriers towards the crowd. Everyone was safe, the car was repaired and the crowd applauded the brave and committed driver off the track. Unfortunately the circuit race was cancelled due to the lack of time, so it was straight to the awards.

In addition to winning the trophy for the First Place in the Drag race, Team Flash was also awarded the trophy for the best bodywork. Congratulations to Sacred Heart Primary School who won the overall award which represented the best total score from all the events. “Flashtastic”, was the description for the project by one of the students in team flash.
