Springboard sponsor RGS Worcester in the Land Rover 4×4 In Schools Challenge

land rover 1Springboard are delighted to announce that we are supporting Team Pinnacle from RGS Worcester in the 2016/17 Land Rover 4×4 In Schools challenge.

The Land Rover 4×4 in Schools Technology Challenge requires students to build a radio controlled four-wheel drive (4×4) vehicle to the specifications provided by the International Rules Committee. It must successfully navigate and complete obstacles on an off-road test track which is just as demanding as a real off-road situation.

Team Pinnacle took part in the National final at Silverstone on Wednesday 28th March where they were assessed on verbal presentation, engineering skills and, most importantly, driving.  We are pleased to say that they were awarded 3rd place at the Nationals and are now through to represent the UK at the World finals which will be held at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi.

Good luck in the World finals Team Pinnacle!

JB Kind’s Chris Wood said “We are thrilled to have exceeded our fundraising target but the best news for Burton Stroke Club is that we haven’t finished yet! JB Kind nominated the club as its main charity for 2016 so we will continue to raise money for them throughout the rest of the year.”

Well done boys!
