Year 12 students at Visions Learning Trust were fired up to see a Ferrari close up - which will inspire them as they build their own racing car.

The students are building an electric car which will take part in Greenpower Education Trust Test Day at Goodwood Motor Circuit in Chichester, West Sussex, in March.

Their finished car will be scrutinised by judges looking for vehicles which achieve the greatest distance and top speed from a single charge.

The Ferrari California 4.3 V8 car was brought in by Hippo Motor Group, Blackburn, to help inspire the learners in their car task.

Team Leader Chris Jones, who will be overseeing the production of the race car, said: “The challenge is something the learners will be working towards every Thursday afternoon in our Thematic period where we will attempt to tie together what our learners have been studying across all subjects.

“They will use their knowledge from maths, English and science and put it all together into making this electric car. Lots of other organisations, such as the police, will be taking part so it’s a great opportunity to get noticed.”
