Thursday 27th June 2019 finally arrived for  Marsden Primary School Young Engineers, who built their own racing kit car , designed a bodywork and then tested the car in preparation for their big day at Gateshead Stadium racing against 39 other schools.

The team were well-prepared and looked smart in the red racing overalls.


The day was a super occasion and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Special thanks must go to Mr Payne who was our mechanic and ‘roadie’, carrying the car and the equipment to and from the venue and, to Mrs Danjoux who helped to supervise the children throughout the day.  Coffees for the staff and cakes for the children were provided by Mrs Lee and these gave us all a welcome ‘sugar boost’.l done Team Marsden and the Marsden Bullet for your effort and hard work over the year and on the day.
