Luton Goblins 2017

Laura, Friday 2nd June, 2017

 10 teams from the Luton area turned up at Luton Sixth Form College, all with the same goal in mind – to win! With lots of supporters and the sun shining, the atmosphere was buzzing and the day set to be a good one.

Scrutineering kicked off the morning, to ensure all cars were safe to enter the track. With one or two schools needing some work doing to the cars in order to pass, all the teams pulled together and helped each other to make sure every car could race.
