Bloodhound Regional Winners at RAF St Mawgan!

Tuesday 2nd May 2017

Bloodhound Regional Winners at RAF St Mawgan!

On Thursday, Mr Hitchcock took a number of our Year 9 students to the regional final of the Bloodhound competition at RAF St. Mawgan. The College entered four teams and three of those teams achieved 1st, 2nd and 4th place in the secondary school category, with 1st and 2nd split by a mere 0.04 seconds!

Emily, Jenny and Rachel, our first-placed team, have now reached the National Final which will be held in June at the Santapod Raceway in Bedfordshire.

As a result of reaching the final, Helston Community College will have its name printed on the tail fin of the Bloodhound car, when it attempts to break the land speed record in South Africa. There will also be a VIP opportunity extended to us, to attend a field test of the car at RAF St Mawgan.

The College would like to congratulate all the students involved.
