The Rotary Club of Hornsea and East Riding sponsored ‘Morpheus’, a Formula 24 car entered by Hornsea School in a Le Mans style competition organised by Greenpower Education Trust, a charity promoting sustainable engineering to young people.
Greenpower provided the basic kit with the students building the car, ably assisted by teaching staff and parents. The main idea was for the team to build and race their own electric powered race car. The event held at the Kingston Communications Stadium ( the home of the Hull City football club) on Sunday the 16th July was a huge success.
The race team of eighteen students were outstanding, winning over the crowds and the Greenpower organisers, receiving the prestigious Spirit of Greenpower award. President Maung and Past President Neil McDonald helped with the scrutineering and Past President Graham McDonald, a governor at Hornsea School, supported the school team. A great day was had by all
