STUDENTS at Newton Abbot College will be able to continue their vital work in their Electric Car Club to produce the racing cars of the future. The Devon Freemasons presented them with a cheque for £2,000 so they can do more in the field of electric car technology. This follows a previous cheque for £300 given to the college by St. Georges Lodge who are based in Exeter. Students from the college have been working for several years under the guidance of John Musty, their technology teacher and club leader now on the development, design and racing of Formula 24 electric racing cars. To date they have produced ‘Lucy’ who is among the best electric cars in Devon and are currently building ‘Freddy’, who will hopefully overtake Lucy. John’s aim is not only to produce the best electric car, but also to encourage the students to become top class engineers in the future, and this donation will continue to allow those dreams to prosper.
