Image Description

3rd March 2020 — This is a worldwide competition that offers apprenticeships at Jaguar Land Rover to those who reach the final stages. The competition consists of creating a new shell for a Land Rover remote control car, driving an extremely demanding assault course, an interview with a panel of judges from Jaguar Land Rover and creating a team ‘Pit’ showcasing the work they have put in throughout the year.

The team performed fantastically, producing a new shell made from biodegradable materials that really impressed the judges. They worked well in their team roles, and clearly communicated their brand and ideas to the Land Rover representatives.

The team won the ‘best engineered car’ in their category which was a great feat. They also however managed to win the entire category and became the Southwest Regional Champions.

A truly excellent performance from team ‘TruBio’ consisting of Stan, Charley, Lucia, Oscar, Isaac and Marco.
