Former One student Josh Webster who has raced at Formula Three level inspired our Engineering teacher, Simon Lacquiere to organise a one-off Grand Prix event where four of our talented racing drivers took to the track to take on their Engineering teachers.
Oli Basey-Fisher raced in the junior Ginetta championships in 2012. His next aim is to compete in the senior version of this class, a series that is screened on ITV4.
Jake Mayes has raced at Formula Ford level in the single seat class.
Matt and Shaun Arnold competed in the Formula Kart Stars Championship earlier in the year and where once dubbed Britain’s fastest twins.
Simon Lacquiere said, “It was great to race this talented group of students. They certainly didn’t hold back. They all want to drive professionally one day or work in the industry and we will do all we can as a sixth form centre to help them achieve their ambitions. Thank you to Anglia Karting for supporting this event.”
