Rose Hill races again!
On Saturday, 12 nervous but excited members of Rose Hill Motorsport made the long journey down to Portsmouth to take part in the first race event of the 2019 Goblin season.
Once again our cars were used as the training vehicles for scrutineer training so were checked over thoroughly but both the Red Devil and Blue Demon cars passed with flying colours.
The whole team dived straight into the racing and both cars performed really well in the first slalom event. The track was soaking wet with very strong gusts of wind adding to the difficulty but all our drivers handled the car well with only a few cones being nudged.
The drag race was into a head wind but despite this we were in the top 5 for most of the event. The final sprint race after lunch saw the Blue Demon knocked out in the first round but the Red Devil progressed to the semi-final. A thrilling race and very determined driving nearly saw us through, but we were unable to make it to the final.
At prize giving we were delighted when the Red Devil team came third in the drag race – only 0.2s off the winning car!
Rose Hill pupils again showed their resilience and determination in wild weather conditions. Well done to the whole team.

On Wednesday 11 March the Reception children went on a visit to the nature trail at Coolings Garden Centre in Knockholt. There was great excitement, even before we boarded the minibus in our salopettes, coats and wellies.

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.

On Sunday, members of the F24 team assembled at a very cold, wet and windy Goodwood Motor Circuit. The damp, grey start did not dampen the spirits and even when we discovered our brakes had failed we were not beaten!
