Greenpower Day 2: Ready to Race

IMG_2549After a full on Day 1 all of the cars have the main body built and many also have 4 wheels attached. As I type several schools have already arrived and are getting straight back on task.  Hopefully by lunchtime several cars will be ready for an installation run along our temporary track. As with yesterday we will livestream the event during the day but we will also try and squeeze in some live interviews at some point too. We also have exciting news this morning that we will be supporting both the Croft event on 26th June and the Great Exhibition of the North event in July where the cars will be racing. We should have live interviews and possibly a running live feed for some of the day too. Seeing these cars being put together so expertly with the help of Mike and the Greenpower volunteers is amazing. If you would like to support in any way, even by just dropping in to see what is happening, please let us know.

The race track awaits…

Well done to everyone involved today. Not every car got to the point of a test run but most weren’t far off. I think the pics below show the sense of achievement with those that did though!
