The Ulteamate, a team of 5 members, Rachel Teo, Tang Yimian, Julia Cheong, Ren Ying and Jolyn Tan, will be representing Singapore in the upcoming F1 in Schools World Finals after clinching National Champions last year in the local F1 in Schools competition. The Ulteamate is an all girls team from Raffles Girls School fighting for the championships this year, in the hope of bringing pride and glory to their country.
Speaking of their success, team leader Rachel Teo: “We are very excited to embark on this F1 in Schools World Finals journey. This journey will not be easy, but as a team, we can conquer the challenges that lie ahead of us and learn throughout the competition process. I believe that this will be an enriching experience for all of us and that it will be one to remember. This year’s world finals would be held on home ground, thus it will also be very meaningful and special in our hearts. We would be putting forth our very best and we hope to do our country proud.”
F1 in Schools is a multi-disciplinary competition which requires students to hone their engineering and designing skills to manufacture a miniature gas-powered Formula Class car out of wood. The team will pit their car against teams across the globe to strive for the Bernie Ecclestone World Champions Trophy. The team will be assessed on the quality of engineering, but also their ability to source for sponsorships to fund their project.
The Ulteamate is made of five members:
- Rachel Teo: Team Leader.
- Ren Ying: Car Designer.
- Jolyn Tan: Manufacturing Engineer.
- Julia Cheong: Marketing & Sponsorship.
- Tang Yimian: Graphic Designer.
The World Finals will be held at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore from 11th to 18th September, and it will be open to the public.
