With three teams into the quarter finals hopes were high for a St Mary’s Cathedral team taking out the 2015 Sunsprint. These hopes were dashed when both Bullet cars were drawn against each other in the first quarter final. In the morning practice sessions Bullet 1 had totally dominated Bullet 2 and it seemed the configuration of the new car was just right. Some last minute adjustments seemed to make a huge difference to the new car and Bullet 2 came out on top.
In the time trials yesterday the team had difficulty setting the new car up. The design and new set up of the car obviously works given what we saw yesterday, however more testing will need to be done to fully understand the new system the team has in place.
Ilios took on one of the long time champion teams, Moorebank HS, in their quarter final. The girls are in the final year at school so were looking to take out one last title before they leave the competition. Unfortunately they were too strong for the Year 9 team who can be very proud of their efforts this year. I know they will be back even stronger in 2016 after attracting some sponsorship during the event!
