What should your team be doing now?
**Deadline for submission of 5 page plan to email@example.com is 14th November 2008**
Have you downloaded the relevant partfiles? These contain a 3D CAD drawing of the balsa wood block from which your car would be manufactured should you get through to the Regional finals. There are three versions of the file available on the website, one compatible with Solid Works, Solid Edge and and IGES format. This is a good place to start and the team can then remove pieces from the 3D car design to make their individual car. These files (Part files) are available to download from www.F1inSchools.ie on the Resources page.
Remember even in your Qualifying round plan you should take into account the specifications of the car e.g. length of car. All the specifications are available in the Rules and Regulations documents for both types of car (D-Type and R-Type). These documents can be downloaded from our website www.F1inSchools.ie again, by going to the ‘Resources’ tab. In this document you will also see the marking scheme for the competition and Qualifying round and further information on the Qualifying Round.
