Best presented team sponsored by Siemens Gamesa: Wybers wood ‘Nightmare’

Great theme for the car focusing on sustainability, recycling and preventing plastics in the sea. Creative name ‘Don’t bottle it’ and all were well presented in the team. The decoration of the car was creative in its use of recycling and lots of time had clearly been spent producing it. 

Spirit of Greenpower sponsored by Drax Power: Selby Abbey C E Primary School ‘The Cannon’

A team who truly represented the saying ‘it’s about the taking part, not the winning’. They helped their friends with issues on the other car when they needed it and also brought along cheerleaders!

Greenest bodywork: Healing Primary School ‘Healing Superheroes’

Excellent use of recycled materials - they had collected and washed used crisp packets which they then decorated their car with – a great example of using existing materials for purposes they were not intended for.

Best bodywork: Barwic Parade Community Primary School ‘Herbie’

An imaginative theme that tied into their schools’ values and featured the bear mascot that’s given to all school leavers.

Portfolio: Selby Abbey C E Primary School ‘Road Runner’

A difficult prize to award out of the 6 entrants. Judges spent most of the day deliberating over the fantastic portfolios on display. An eventually winner of Road Runner was chosen due to their hard work and commitment to the project which was clearly portrayed in the portfolio.

Best Presented Team sponsored by Hull College: Warren of Hull ‘Warren One’

One of the most professional fitted teams in the paddock with a welcoming attitude to the whole community.

Portfolio Award: Huntcliff School ‘Huntcliff’

Fantastic alternative portfolio in the form of a cake (the way to Greenpower’s heart) and a comprehensive project book that was very informative and detailed.

Siemens Digital Award: University of Hull ‘Thunder Wolves’

The main outcome from their initial design days was a rebranding of the team to the now instantly recognisable “Thunderwovles”. 

The team also came up with some very creative ideas such as to have a wolf figurehead for their car! Their ideas became reality and the now affectionately known “Steve” the wolf, who now lives on in the current updated 2018-19 car. 

IET Engineering Award: Hull City Council  ‘Room 42’

A very clean, well designed car. Attention to detail was paid to the efficiency of the vehicle, ensuring that they could get the most out of the energy in the batteries. A real credit to the team.

Spirit of Greenpower Award sponsored by Philips 66: Beverley Grammar School ‘BGS1’

Full team engagement on car repairs and adjustments highlighting the resiliency that the team members possessed and the determination to keep going. Most importantly the children conducted all repairs themselves with minimal adult support.
