Business Secretary Vince Cable helped present the 2012 McLaren Manufacturing Challenge trophy to this year’s winning school.
The McLaren Manufacturing Challenge is an annual competition designed to raise the profile and help improve the image of high-tech manufacturing and engineering.
Schools are challenged to come up with inventive designs for model cars that, just as in Formula 1, must comply with strict regulations, but be as fast as possible. The cars can be as complicated and as ingenious as the teams like, but the challenge is simple – to cover a 10 metre track as quickly as possible, but without using any form of motor.
