Singapore to host 2010 F1 in Schools World Championships

Singapore has been granted the honour of hosting the sixth annual F1 in Schools World Championships in September, ahead of the 2010 Singapore Grand Prix
F1 in Schools has announced that the sixth annual F1 in Schools World Championships will be held at Ngee Ann Polytechnic's Convention Centre in Singapore prior to the 2010 Singapore Grand Prix in September.

Having hosted the Singapore national championships for the last five years, the polytechnic is well-placed to organise the premier event on the F1 in Schools calendar, which is expected to be attended by more than 250 students from around the globe.

The event will take place from 19-26 September, with the two main competition days on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 September. The event culminates with the final stage – the Knockout racing competition – on 23 September. A glittering awards celebration will be the finale to an intense week of highly-pressured racing, presentations and judging – and will be attended by a number of dignitaries and invited guests from the world of F1.

“We are indebted to Ngee Ann Polytechnic for agreeing to host our 2010 World Championships and we are looking forward to a very exciting event,” commented Andrew Denford, F1 in Schools founder and chairman. “The polytechnic has tremendous facilities and I know that they will provide us with a superb backdrop to this prestigious competition.

“We have very specific demands, with the many different elements which comprise F1 in Schools, but I know that this first-class venue will be able to cope admirably. We are looking forward to meeting all our competitors at Ngee Ann Polytechnic in September.”

“Ngee Ann Polytechnic is honoured to be the host of the F1 in Schools World Championships 2010,” added Foo See Meng, deputy principal of Ngee Ann Polytechnic. “Having held the national competition in Singapore at our Convention Centre, we are delighted to play a key role in this international event. This highly-charged motorsport event is a fantastic platform to get students excited about engineering and design.”

The 2010 F1 in Schools World Championships will bring together national champions from F1 in Schools competitions around the globe, as well as a number of collaborative teams with teams from two different countries competing together.

This unique student challenge is the largest global educational initiative that raises awareness of F1 and promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The students use CAD/CAM software to design, build and test a model-compressed, air-powered balsa wood F1 car of the future and it takes place in over 30 countries around the world, with an estimated six million school children competing.
