Renishaw New Mills Goblins 2017

Laura, Thursday 18th May, 2017


Saturday 13th May saw 12 Goblins descend upon the Renishaw New Mills staff car park, for the first of our Renishaw supported events of the 2017 season.

After a windy evening the night proceeding the event, the weather calmed in time for the teams to take to the track. After the teams were briefed the schools were ready to weave their way through the slalom course, and tear up the drag race in the quickest time possible.

Thomas A Beckett’s Junior Schools ‘TABinator’ had travelled all the way from Worthing in West Sussex to the Gloucester event, and were ready to show the other teams their well-practiced slalom techniques.   

After the morning’s event were finished, the teams were ready for the sprint race. With the North Nibley CE Primary school team, being very sportsman like and cheering on all of the teams, the event was buzzing with support for all of the competing teams during the sprint race. With extremely close racing, third place resulted in a draw between Freshford Primary Schools ‘FRESH1’ and Ducklington CE Primary schools ‘Lightening’.  Hillesley C.E.V.A Primary school in 2nd place and Ducklington CE Primary Schools second car stormed to victory and took 1st place in the sprint race.

We would like to thank Renishaw Plc for all of the event support and supplying volunteers that helped the event run on the day.

We would also like to thank each volunteer for their contribution to the event, we wouldn’t be able to run our events without all of your help.

Pictures from the event can be found on our official photographic partners, Spacesuit Media’s collections website here.
