A GROUP of ambitious County Clare students who are designing their very own miniature Formula 1 car are looking for backing from local businesses.

“Hot-Shots Racing” is an all girls team of Transition Year students from Coláiste Muire, Ennis, who are participating in this year’s F1 in Schools competition. F1 in Schools is a highly esteemed STEM competition for secondary school students in Ireland, where participants design, race, and manufacture their own miniature F1 car.

The Coláiste team comprises of Caoimhe Collins, Ava O’Connor, Ellisha Kelly, Leah Griffin, Aoibheann O’Connell, Aine Comyns and Juliette Purcell.

Team member Caoimhe Collins told The Clare Echo that the girls are striving to showcase their skills and passion for engineering, teamwork, and innovation, led by their coordinator and teacher, Mr Mark Sweeney. “Our team comprises of talented individuals, each with their specific roles within the team,” said Caoimhe.

“To succeed in this competition, we need to establish partnerships with businesses and organisations, secure sponsorships, utilise various advertising platforms and most importantly collaborate seamlessly to ensure the team’s success throughout the competition.

“If you are interested in supporting our team in any way at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us, we would be immensely grateful for any support provided.”
