Visit to the Goodwood Festival of Speed

On 29 June a group of Design & Technology students and prospective engineers from the Sixth Form visited the famous festival. There was a wide variety of cutting edge technology being presented: the Bloodhound land speed record attempt display, the military technology arena, and the latest offerings from Lamborghini, McLaren and the F1 world. The students enjoyed taking tyre-screeching laps of the track in the latest Jaguar sports cars, as well as mud-churning laps of the test field in 4x4 turbocharged Porsche Cayennes. A superb day out with the country’s top engineering universities pitching their wares to a new generation of budding designers.
