My name is Jason Alexander and I am a sixth year pupil at Aberdeen Grammar School. This year I am involved in one of the teams competing in the F1 in Schools Challenge representing Grammar. In short, the challenge involves creating a formula 1 team dealt with a task to design, construct and race the fastest formula one car of the future driven by compact compressed air cylinders. You race your car on a 20m F1 in Schools race track to see who has designed and manufactured the fastest car. As a team you register to take part in your local Regional Final where you compete against other teams from your area hence for us in Scotland. As Scottish Champions and holders of the judges recommendation award we have got through to the UK National Final to compete again against other regional winners for the title of UK National Champions. This process is repeated around the world in over 40 countries where National Champions from every country are invited to compete at the World Finals in Singapore where they go head to head to become the F1 in Schools World Champions and lift the Bernie Ecclestone F1 in Schools World Champions trophy.
As the media and marketing manager of Legacy Racing I wondered if your company would be interested in financially helping us in order to attain the money required for the competition which is around £4000. The benefits that are available from a partnership with F1 in Schools range from brand awareness resulting from the mass-media coverage that the challenge generates, to direct engagement with both students and teachers within the competing schools, not to mention their friends and families.
