PUPILS from a Malvern school have taken part in the Race for the Line rocket car competition in conjunction with the Bloodhound SSC Land Speed World Record attempt.

The Chase's Science, Technology, Engineering and maths (STEM) club, which includes Year 8 and 9 pupils took part in the regional schools final at RAF Cosford, in Shropshire.

The Chase put forward five teams to compete against 30 other teams from across the region on Thursday, May 4.

The day was supported by members of the RAF, Navy and the Bloodhound SSC education team.

Each race comprised two competing teams racing against each other, with the times being recorded using a data logger and computer.

In the dramatic and tense presentation The Chase STEM club were delighted to learn that one of The Chase STEM club teams, ‘Guess Work Engineers’, had the third fastest time of the day.

This will mean that their names will be on the tail fin of the Bloodhound SSC car that will hopefully break the land speed record and exceed 1000mph next year in South Africa.

They also stand a chance of reaching the national finals at Santa Pod in Bedfordshire.

Students taking part included Megan Bradley, Oliver Cripps, Robert Harnden, Jemima Ison, David Keats, Elija Nixon, Joshua Nixon, Joe Oliver, Dimitri Pribojac, Jessica Rae, Jasmine Rose, Charlotte Smith, Matthew Spaul and Philip Sykes.
