The Team:

Laminar Racing is a team of four grade 12 students from Bert Church High School in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada. In our inaugural season in F1 in Schools, we won the title of Canadian National Champions enabling us to represent Canada at the 2015 F1 in Schools World Finals in Singapore. At the world finals we won the awards for Best Engineered Car and Best Research & Development, in addition to placing 12th of 47 teams. We're very proud of all we've learned and achieved!
