Our Team and the F1 in Schools Competition
We are Annex Racing from St. Muredach's College, Ballina and we are participating in the 2020 F1 in Schools World Finals.
The F1 in Schools competition is one of the largest STEM challenges in the world as it is open to over 23 million students across 45 different countries. Teams must design, manufacture and race and 1:20 scale model of an F1 car. These cars race down a straight 20 metre track in just one second. They are propelled by an 8 gram CO2 canister and can reach speeds of 115km/h in just 0.3 of a second.
