Two teams (3 students in each team – Manchester Academy A and Manchester Academy B) were entered in this year’s competition. The 6 students were selected on merit (good behaviour and attendance).
Both teams performed exceptionally well on the arena track, however only Manchester Academy B won through to the regional final.
The regional final took place at the Three Sisters Race Circuit in Wigan on Monday, 24th April. That track is the ‘real deal’ – a full size outdoor track with go karts that go in excess of 50 MPH!
Manchester Academy B put up a valiant effort, but unfortunately did not progress further in the competition. All our students had a great experience and hopefully next we can take it a stage further.
Thank you to our students whose behaviour and sportsmanship were impeccable, a credit to Manchester Academy. Many thanks also to Ms Artingstall (Pastoral Support Worker) for her support and the BSKC for making the events happen.
