The ASP Motorsports Club, with members from Abingdon, Fitzharrys and John Mason schools, had a very productive session working on design and development plans with Ollie and Zaak, undergraduate engineering placement students at GKN Automotive’s Innovation Centre in Abingdon. The Club is now split into 2 teams, a blue team continuing with development work on last season’s successful Fitz24 electric racing car, whilst the red team has begun work on renovating a second car, aptly named the Red Kite. Under the guidance of Ollie and Zaak, the teams worked on plans for bodywork designs and materials and improved power control systems for the 2024 racing season which begins in May 2024. It was really inspiring to see the pupils from across the schools working constructively with each other as well as with the young engineers working at the forefront of automotive technology innovation in Abingdon.
