A team of students is seeking sponsorship to enable its entry to take its place in the finals of one of the most exciting challenges in modern engineering.

Sponsorship from Brightwork, the Glasgow and Edinburgh based recruitment business has already given the Woodfarm High School whizz-kids the opportunity to compete in the Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) 4 X 4 challenge, but a further £8,000 of sponsorship funding is needed to cover the planned five-day trip to Abu Dhabi.

Between now and December, Woodfarm’s ‘Team Docs’, six-strong and comprising Danial, Rory, Rowan, Lewis and Jake, and led by Suzanne, is focused on raising the funds to enable its remote controlled car to compete against 16 others from around the world, at the Global Finals to be held at the spectacular Yas Marina stadium.

The team will be available for a chat on October 4 at a roadshow in Woodfarm High School.
