Denford, Jaguar and BAE Systems launched the Formula One in Schools Challenge with NGFL minister Michael Wills (right) at BETT to help raise the profile of engineering in a fun and positive way.

Open to all secondary students aged 11 to 18, the challenge stems from the successful Department for Education and Employment CADCAM initiative launched in May 1999.
