CEIST schools Compete in the F1 in Schools World Finals

After a tough, hard fought competition Team Ireland comprising of Autolaunch Racing, Fusion F1, and Photon Racing have been successful in winning three of the top prizes at the F1 in Schools World Finals held earlier this week in Abu Dhabi.

The reigning Irish national champions, Autolaunch Racing from Presentation College, Carlow impressed the judges panel and were awarded ‘Best Engineered Car’ and ‘Best Verbal Presentation’, taking 5th place overall.

Fusion F1, made up of members of the Irish junior category winners Renaissance Racing (also from Presentation College, Carlow) and UAE National Finalists, Team Tachyon, won the ‘Best Collaboration’ prize.

Photon Racing from Presentation College, Headford, Galway also competed very well but were unfortunate not to receive an award.

CEIST congratulates all three teams including their teachers and parents
