Pedal Power at the Barnstaple Grand Prix

On Sunday 19th May, five Year 10 boys from The Ilfracombe Academy took to the streets of Barnstaple to compete in the gruelling ‘one hour’ pedal car race. Despite mechanical problems with the chain, the boys finished a very credible second place in the junior category and third overall. Josh Turner proved to be the stalwart of the team completing the most laps, ably supported in the driver’s seat by Liam Knill and Robert McKenna. Helping the boys during their pit stops were Tom Wade and Aston Redmond. It was a great performance from the boys and they are all looking forward to modifying the pedal car in readiness for next year’s race.
