Revving Up Education: Boxford Sponsors Scalextric4Schools Program

by | 26 Jul '23

Scalextric4Schools is an exciting slot car challenge crafted by two exceptionally creative and technically gifted educators: David Eyre and Chris Jarman, who possess an impressive track record of inspiring their students through exciting, thought-provoking, and ground-breaking lessons in design.

Among their many accomplishments, they have successfully orchestrated projects involving the exhilarating realms of slot car design, construction, and racing. In 2009, the very first Scalextric4Schools competition took flight, captivating participants nationwide through a series of regional heats.

Fast forward to June 30th, 2023, and Scalextric4Schools was reborn, reigniting the thrill of the competition. This time, the relaunched event unfolded at Bishops’ Blue Coat High School in Chester, welcoming 14 cars to race for victory in an exhilarating display of skill and speed and sponsored by no other than us, Boxford!
