This page is devoted to the Chipping Sodbury's School Rotary Racer Greenpower electric car.
This efficient electric racing car designed, built and raced by pupils at Chipping Sodbury School in the Greenpower schools challenge is currently "International Champions" of the 2015 season at the final in Rockingham, October 2015. Greenpower cars race in 1.5 hour sprint-style races on full size racing circuits and generally average a speed of around 30mph achieving equivalent MPG values of greater than 3000 MPG. The aim of Greenpower is promoting enginerring & technology as exciting careers to those aged 9-21. The concept for teams is to design, build, develop and race highly efficient "green" electric racing cars.
The F24 team consists of Tristan (Tristan Shout), Joe (Josephina the Ballerina), Tom (Turbo Tom), Ben (nickname tbc), Daniel (nickname tbc) and William (nickname tbc). The F24+ team consists of Tom (Op-Thomas Prime), Louise (Persil, Small and Mighty) and Ben (nickname tbc). The parents who give up their time to help build the car are Terry, Kevan, Steve and Rob.

Rotary Racer News
We have made the electronic speed controller used in Rotary Racer into a pupil buildable and programmable kit and are selling this to any Greenpower teams that are interested. As well as performing as an electronic motor speed controller, the kit can be developed by the teams into a full electronics control system for Greenpower cars with displays, data logging, GPS and telemetry etc.
