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 Thursday, 9 November Year 7 went on an Art trip to the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne. After a bus journey to Eastbourne College we had a delicious lunch in their canteen. We then walked a short distance to the Towner Gallery which is located right next to the College. It wasn’t hard to miss as there was an amazing mural painted on the side of the building, in all sorts of shapes and colours, celebrating the Towner’s 10th Anniversary.
