Team EDGE, supported by Overfinch, are crowned national champions of Land Rover in schools 4×4 Challenge

23rd March 2017

Overfinch is delighted to have supported Team EDGE, a highly polished team of 5 school children at the King’s School, Worcester, to become the UK national champions of the Land Rover 4×4 in Schools Challenge.

This hotly contested, national schools challenge required pupils to design, engineer and build a remote control 4×4 vehicle, to complete a complicated off-road course that was designed to put their engineering to the test. Team EDGE designed and built their vehicle from scratch and after months of preparation and practice, they romped to victory at the National Championships at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon.

The team won the event through the impressive score of 96/100 for the performance on the course and also for the high quality of the engineering that the judges felt they vehicle displayed.

Overfinch are delighted to offer Congratulations to Team EDGE and look forward to supporting them to the International Championships.

The young engineers at Team EDGE have been working with many of the latest technologies to manufacture their vehicle. The components that they have produced range from the motherboards, coding and the circuitry required to run automatic headlights, a roll sensor and even an alarm that sounds if the vehicle is approaching its tipping point. They have designed the chassis and bodywork with the latest CAD software programs, with plastic items formed over hand crafted bucks and wheels and aluminium items hand-forged with an astonishing degree of precision.

The team are already proud UK Champions, they were awarded the Best Engineered Vehicle & 1st Place National Finals Development Class back in march – with further support of Overfinch, we are looking forward to their attempt at the next round – the International level.

Overfinch visited these five engineers at their school to present team caps and to learn more about the expertise within the team. The level of professionalism and engineering prowess shown by these five school children is highly impressive, both Overfinch and Team EDGE share a common goal, which is of course, perfection in engineering.

We will be following their progress over the coming months, supporting their bid to win another trophy at the International finals next year.
