Future Racing to star in F1 NATIONAL FINAL ON TG4 tonight

This evening, 23rd of May, the Irish F1 in Schools National Finals will be broadcast on TG4 from 8:30-9:30pm and will feature our TY racing team "Future Racing"

This is the first time an F1 in Schools Ireland event has been broadcast on television and we wish our school team, and we wish our school team Future Racing every success as they compete against 110 other schools for the ultimate prize of representing Ireland at the World F1 Finals. Best of luck to our F1 formula racing car team. Leah Hannon, Laura Calleary, Julianne Stannett, and Emma Hughes.

When it comes to educating young people in the 4 STEM disciplines, science, technology, engineering and maths, this is without doubt one of the fastest most exciting routes to take.

In a one hour special for TG4, presenters Máire Treasa Ní Dhubhghaill and John Sharpson will follow the various teams progress as they prepare for the National finals in April 2021.

Each team member will take on a specific role for the project, manager, engineer or promoter and they will work together tirelessly to bring their designs to life. There will be in-house bickering, the stresses of meeting design deadlines for the cars, the testing and failure of prototypes and the construction of the actual cars.

Throughout it all, we’ll see some of the brightest young minds in Ireland apply themselves to this undertaking as we get a glimpse of the best of the next generation of future scientists and engineers.

The programme will culminate in the National Finals which will see the Top teams race their cars in time trials on a purpose built speed track.
