Support Us


Many of the team's deliverables cannot be produced in house, and those that can often require us to purchase materials.

To successfully compete in F1 in Schools, teams must manufacture many cars, construct physical testing apparatus, build displays, print portfolios, and order uniforms. In the case that the World Finals is not held virtually, which is still a possibility, we will also need to purchase flights, accommodation, and transport.

All of these costs come together to give us a projected budget of approximately 55,000 Australian Dollars. We can't take on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity on our own, so we turn to industry and other businesses for support.

If you are interested in sponsoring our team, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and request our sponsorship prospectus.


Monetary support or supplies are not the only way you can support us. Both our team and the F1 in Schools judges welcome and strongly encourage collaboration between teams and industry in all facets of the competition. From designing our car's wheel structure to implementing an effective marketing strategy, there are always things we can learn from industry.

If you want to get involved, and think you could be of help to our team, please feel free to contact us.
