+ Slipstream heads to Abu Dhabi
East County students took national honors during the F1 in Schools National Championship and now will represent the United States in the world finals in Abu Dhabi this fall.
Slipstream — a team composed of East County students Merritt Kendzior, Hannah Figueras, Madalyn Kumar, Domenic Aluise and Victoria Sinclair — won three contingency awards for best engineered car, best portfolio and best pit display.
“This has truly been a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” says Merritt, Slipstream’s team manager. “We worked day and night to prepare our team for success and are extremely proud that our hard work paid off. We are pleased to carry on the winning tradition of Manatee County Schools.”
Manatee’s Enigma Racing team finished in the top 10, as well.
