Silverstone - 17th October 2019

So the team really did do the school and community proud at Silverstone. As a largely new team they really stepped up to take on a 100 other teams from around the world.

Retro Rocket’s engine didn’t manage quite as well, failing completely by the end of the last race (it happens to the best F1 teams) with 5 years of racing it was just our time. Parents, the team and I were/are still really pleased; we were running in the top 10 for much of the weekend (with a failing motor) so the positive is the team and car should be back at the top once a new motor is fitted.  A very impressed new parent said they would be happy to sponsor us for next season. Watch this space!
