A little bit of background information

Last year I took my kids to The London Science Museum, and Nate was keen to see a display by a secondary school racing team.  They were showing off their electric car, and I introduced myself to a member of Green Power, the company responsible for the cars and events.  I asked if they made a primary school car, and they introduced me to The Goblin car!

The Goblin comes in kit form, and year six students learn how to build, race and maintain it as a team.  During each year there are races against other schools with the exact same kit, including a national meet at Goodwood race circuit.

Through a very kind anonymous donation from a parent, and generous backing from the PTA , we bought our kit.  We held a competition to name the team, and Grace Southgate won with her “Minchinhampton Moochanics” entry.  

Plans are being made to completely charge the car using solar panels, to help further strengthen our green credentials.  We are all excited about our first season as a team, and look forward to sharing our adventure with you on this blog!
