STUDENTS from Bognor Regis were given a taste of life in the fast lane.

The Year-10 students from The Regis School, along with two of their teachers Deborah Kite and Roger Burton, attended The Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Ms Kit said: “It was a fantastic opportunity for students considering a career in design or engineering to meet experts in that field and then to get to go and see the cars and drivers in action. We are looking to build stronger links with the Goodwood estate in order to provide more exciting and stimulating learning experiences for our students.”

The group visited the motor circuit and attended presentations on the need for speed, design and engineering.

Speakers included Peter Stevens, a freelance automative design consultant, Martin Starky, MD of Gurit Automative Composites and Professor Dale Harrow.

Students also had the chance to watch the Red Arrow display before heading over to the main site to enjoy the afternoon looking around the many exhibits and car paddocks.

Alice Williams said: “It was great fun and a great day out where we learnt a lot about the links between design and engineering.”
