Team Doc’s fly the flag for Scotland

Team DOC’S, represented Scotland at the north of England regional finals of the Jaguar Land Rover 4X4 In Schools competition at the University Technical College in Durham on Friday 17th February 2017.

In the fourth year of competing the team (Danial T, Rory G, Suzanne M, Rowan R, Jake G and Lewis G) had to work together to design and build a radio controlled 4-wheel-drive (4×4) vehicle in the demanding professional class. The final car had to meet a series of demanding specifications and be successfully driven across and through a range of obstacles and specific tasks. In addition the team had to deliver a presentation, undergo an engineering inspection and pass a pit lane inspection by judges from the Jaguar Land Rover group.

After a long day of challenges, assessments and with no crashes this year the team emerged victorious- receiving the overall best team award along with the best driving award and for the first time the best engineered award- a great success for the new team. The win secures team DOC’S place at the National finals at Silverstone Race on the 28th March 2017.

A special thanks to Mr Bell, Mr McGregor and sponsors Brightwork Recruitment who made it all possible.
