Bloodhound Final at the Santa Pod Raceway
Thursday 29th June 2017
Four boys from Elements made it through to the finals of the Bloodhound 'Race for the Line' national competition. They learnt a huge amount - even though they were sadly disqualified in the second round of racing. However, there were many positives. Their race time in the first heat (prior to tweaking the car before the second heat and cutting away too much) was recorded in metres per second. Their best effort in regional finals was 30.7 mps. In the Finals they ran at 44.4 mps - an increase of almost 5 mps! Also, the learning the boys took from the day in regard to working in a group was simply fantastic. They realised that they should have voted on certain decisions before implementation - a great learning point at 10 and 11 years old! Please help us congratulate these boys on their amazing achievements!
