Parrotts Sponsor ‘The More Car Racing Team’
Parrott Construction and Clive Wiley Ltd are the new sponsors of the St Thomas More School in Bedford student led Car Racing Team.
Managing Director of Parrotts, Chris Layram and Business Associate Clive Wiley visited the school recently to meet the enthusiastic team who couldn’t wait to show off their hard work and demonstrate how the cars worked and share their plans.
The More Car Racing Team enables students of all abilities and from differing backgrounds to come together and showcase their creativity and ingenuity – ICT, Design, Science, Technology, Business, Engineering and Maths skills are all put to the test within the team as well as improving social and communication skills.
The Design and Technology department, along with a range of students, designed and constructed two electric powered racing cars, which thanks to Parrott’s support can now be entered into the Greenpower International races at Rockingham Raceway in Northamptonshire, where cars from all over the UK enter the competition.
Chris Layram commented “We are delighted to have been able to provide support to the school to enable further student development and provide the team with all the required safety equipment they need to be able to competitively race over the coming year”.
