Region Supports Teach Tachyon attempt to win F1 in Schools World Final- Oct 2016

Following the Region's support for Team Tachyon, we have received a wonderful email with some links to their story and success.  

This letter is just to say a huge thank you for all of your support during the F1 in Schools competition 2016. Without your help we would not have been able to succeed as we did in Austin. 

During our time at the competition, we were extremely successful in picking up a multitude of awards, becoming one of the most decorated teams at the competition, winning a total of three awards: the ‘Best Verbal Presentation’ award, the ‘FIA Women in Motorsport’ award and the ‘Sponsorship and Marketing’ award. In addition to this, we were able to receive a total of 7 nominations; again more than any other team at the competition.

This video shows some of our highlights from the awards ceremony:

Amy our team manager secured a position on the Williams Ranstad Engineering academy, achieving her ambition that she has worked so hard for over the last couple of years with the F1 in schools project.

We are very proud of establishing professional partnerships with your organisation who has  supported us in the competition.  Your support has enabled us to win the "Best Sponsorship and Marketing Award" again this year and being the only team ever to be recognised as the best in the world at this aspect for two years on the run.  We continue to promote our sponsors whenever the opportunity arises.  Recently the team has met with MPs and been discussed in the Welsh assembly.

Being amongst business professionals from all around the world in an enterprise capital such as Austin, Texas was an undoubtedly life changing event for all of us, allowing us to experience engineering and business first hand, paving our future career paths. Without your support non of this would have been possible and so we are extremely grateful.

Thank you again for your immense aid,

Team Tachyon

The Region is delighted to be able to support the Team Tachyon in their attempt to win the F1 for Schools World Finals to be held in Texas in October.  The team consisting of Amy, Jessica, Katie and Holly won through heats to represent the UK.  The girls not only proved their skill on the track, but also made a very technical and professional presentation to our Regional Chairman, Gareth Jones, when he attended the school to present them with the cheque.  We are hoping that the girls will come and present at one of the Regional events after they get back from the finals.

If you are interested in finding out more about how the girls get on, you can follow them at twitter on @team_tachyon
