Renishaw Event Castle Combe 2017

Foreword Renishaw official Sponsor of the Castle Combe Heat 2017 As a world leader in engineering technologies, we are happy to be supporting the activities of Greenpower which through competitive team racing helps to highlight the enjoyment and fun that engineering brings to the lives of many people, and its potential to provide an interesting and rewarding career. As an end-to-end business, with sites throughout Gloucestershire and the UK, Renishaw offers attractive careers to younger people in areas as diverse as scientific research, engineering, IT and marketing. In 2017 we have employed 45 engineering and software apprentices plus 43 graduates and also offer many work placements for schools students, as well as industrial and summer placements for undergraduates. I want to wish you all well with today’s racing and the rest of the season, and whilst the competitive spirit is important to drive innovation and excellence, the most important thing for you is to learn from your experiences and to appreciate the benefit that strong teamwork delivers to any project. Good Luck! Sir David R McMurtry CBE, RDI, CEng, FIMechE, FREng Chairman and Chief Executive


Renishaw Event Castle Combe 2017

Welcome Welcome to our annual IET Formula 24 and IET Formula 24 + event at Castle Combe. We’re pleased to be returning to this fantastic venue again in 2017 for our annual event. As a charity, Greenpower relies on significant support from many hundreds of volunteers, organisations and supporters who contribute unbelievable amounts of their time and resources. This is all because we share the same vision of inspiring our young participants about engineering subjects and sustainability. Renishaw Plc are one of the many companies that share our vision. We would like to thank them for their continued support that allows us to run this event, year after year, as well as supporting two IET Formula Goblin events held at their New Mills and Miskin sites, earlier in the year. Good luck to all of the teams that will be participating; we’re looking forward to seeing you!

Renishaw Event Castle Combe 2017

Introducing Greenpower At Greenpower Education Trust we give young people an exciting, real life challenge with a proven track record in sparking an interest in engineering. The challenge – to design, build and race an electric car, harnesses the excitement of motorsport to inspire young people to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) studies. • We work with over 600 schools throughout the UK and run 35 regional events and an International Final every year. • More than 10,000 students take part each year, from primary school through to university.

Greenpower is helping to address the skills gap the UK faces in engineering and is licensed in various countries worldwide, highlighting to participants the global nature of the industry.

IET Formula 24 Ages 11-16

“The organisation was first rate, the staff were all very approachable and helpful and the atmosphere was very good indeed. It was, in fact, inspirational without being restrictive.” Paul March, Poole Grammar School

Teams of students design and build their own IET Formula 24 Kit Car and compete at regional events and the International Final held at Rockingham Motor Speedway. IET Formula 24 is geared towards schools but we welcome private entries and teams from youth groups and engineering clubs.

IET Formula Goblin Ages 9 – 11

The IET Formula Goblin is an electric kit car designed for young people to build and race at venues such as Goodwood. A typical build takes 15 hours and the Goblin can be dismantled and rebuilt each year with a new team of children. The Goblin Kit Car is aimed at 9 to 11 year-olds and is ideal for schools and community groups. The kit comes with easy to follow instructions and the build requires only simple hand tools. Schools can run the project as part of the design and technology or science curriculum. Teams design and create their own bodywork once the kit is assembled. School teams are invited to participate in Greenpower events held throughout the UK. “We have enjoyed building the car this year and it was great to compete against other schools’ cars in Washington. As result of the project we now know more about engineering, working together as a team, listening to others and sharing ideas.” Goblin Team Members, Cleadon Academy, Sunderland

IET Formula 24 gives 11 – 16 year-olds the opportunity to design, build and race an electric car on some of the UK’s top motor circuits.

“It was such a fantastic event for the pupils to take part in and something that made me immensely proud as a teacher.” Alan Tilley, Southbrook Special School, Devon

IET Formula 24+ Ages 16 – 25

Greenpower boosts interest and career opportunities in Science, Technology and Engineering by enabling 16 – 25 year olds to design, build and race an electric IET Formula 24+ Kit Car. Teams take part in the design and building of the car, race days and the IET Formula 24+ Championship. IET Formula 24+ is aimed at sixth forms, colleges, universities and apprenticeship schemes but we also welcome private entries and teams from youth groups and engineering clubs. “Having my involvement in Greenpower on my CV when I applied for university and placements really helped me stand out. The contacts I made at Greenpower also helped me to arrange my work placement during my degree” Nikki Jones, IET Formula 24+ participant

Case Study “...being a part of Greenpower has taught me an abundance of skills and it has given me a clearer view of what I want to do with my future. Also it helped me gain an apprenticeship with Cobham...” I have been involved with Greenpower since I was eleven years old and since then I have helped in the production of twelve cars. In the beginning I would just help out with pit stops at the races. After that I was then allowed to race the car, as a tactical strategy I would be put in at the closing stages of the race as I was small and didn’t weigh much, giving the exhausted battery’s a chance. I started to become a valued member of the team as for the next few seasons I would turn up to the lessons and help in the whole process of design and manufacture. Next I introduced Greenpower to my school which prompted them to enter a team which I was then lucky enough to manage. After I turned 17 I got involved in F24+ this is putting all my years of experience and knowledge to create a car on my own. My current car Evolve did better than expected on the first outing, coming 5th at the Goodwood heat. I strongly believe that being a part of Greenpower has taught be an abundance of skills and it has given me a clearer view of what I want to do with my future. Also it helped me gain an apprenticeship with Cobham which started in September 2017. Matty Waine

Flags YELLOW FLAG

Indicates that there is a hazard ahead, e.g. stationary car/s or recovery vehicle. Be extra careful, slow down, and only overtake other cars if there is a significant speed differential. Drivers deemed to be overtaking dangerously under yellow flags will be penalised.

RED FLAG

This means that the session is stopped until further notice. All drivers will slow immediately and continue slowly around the circuit until indicated to stop. Remain in the vehicle unless otherwise instructed.

CHEQUERED FLAG

Each vehicle will finish the race when it first crosses the timing point after the race duration measured from the first time the union flag drops at the start of the race. As cars cross the start line after they have finished they will be presented with a static chequered flag. The winning car will be presented with a waved chequered flag.

BLACK FLAG

A black flag pointed at your car indicates that you should enter the pitlane immediately, either for a Sin Bin penalty or because something is wrong with your car.

WARNING!

MOTORSPORT CAN BE DANGEROUS Despite the organisers taking all reasonable precautions, unavoidable accidents can happen. Please comply with all instructions of marshals, notices and remain in permitted areas only. They are concerned with your safety.
