Over a year in the making, and Hyperdrive are back and will be competing in February - March at the 2017 F1 in Schools Australian National Finals in Adelaide. After placing 5th at the 2015 Singapore World Finals, the team couldn’t escape the thrill of the competition and are back for more. We are here for a New Era with New Limits to refine.
Along the way, the team has undergone significant change, acquiring two new members; David Greig has the role of Aerodynamics Engineer, responsible for making sure the car is aerodynamically sound. Alec Alder is managing our digital content, social media and manufacturing of the car. Hugh Bowman and Kyle Winkler have retained their positions as Team/Marketing Manager and Design Engineer. To get to know our team better, visit our Facebook page or YouTube channel for a Meet the Team video.
Hyperdrive is ready and refreshed for the new season and the many challenges that the competition poses, including finding sponsorship and designing an effective fast car.
Our development is unparalleled and rapid; with a solid foundation to come from we are able to put together a project filled with innovation and impressive work. Last week, Hyperdrive were fortunate enough to visit the Victorian State Finals, held in Engineers Australia’s offices in the Melbourne CBD. We were able to engage with students and industry representatives and exchange ideas. We were amazed by the standard of competition and the hard work that the students had put into their projects. Both the cars and pit displays were completed to a very high standard and looked fantastic. We would like to congratulate all the competitors and particularly Fast Forward Racing and Techno Drift for coming first overall in development and professional class.
The new Hyperdrive brand has been developed as above. The meaning to our new brand is simple though important. To compete without compromise. Just because something is, doesn’t mean it should. A team with a purpose, to redefine the limits. Poke bears. Stay Humble. Ignore the doubters, if they say you can’t, they’re probably scared you can. Respect your competition, fuel your ambition and do what’s right, not what’s easy. Hyperdrive.
