$23 million Car Display

2019 11 15 yr6 stem day web 04Pacific Hills has hosted a display of motorsport cars with a combined value of over $23,000,000! The trio included a McLaren Formula One MP4 car driven by Kimi Raikkonen, a Porsche GT4 and a Porsche 911 rally car.

The MP4 is a gift presented to Re-Engineering Australia Foundation by the McLaren team. The two Porsches were provided by School parent, Grant Geelan. Grant has a Porsche workshop called Autohaus Hamilton and is a sponsor of our F1 in School champion team which recently won the NSW Finals.

The occasion was the Year 6 STEM Day in which students were involved in the Jaguar Primary School Challenge. This competition involved making and decorating a balsa racing car and racing it on a track with Formula One-style start lights and computer timing.

Twenty five teams competed against each other with Ube Bros recording the fastest track time of 1.599 seconds. This qualified them for a showdown against the Frontier Racing car which won the F1 in Schools NSW Finals…which won the day.

Special guests were Dr Michael Myers OA, an engineer who established the Re Engineering Australia Foundation and who has spent over two decades inspiring young students in STEM, and a Christian racing driver Adam Leung. Adam was the 2009 Formula Ford Rookie Of The Year and 2010 Formula Ford National Champion, and he spoke about God giving us dreams to pursue.
