Our Esports students visited Williams Racing Experience Centre to take part in a virtual F1 race event.
The day consisted of practice, qualifying and race heats, where the students competed across 4 hours to make it to the 20-minute grand final race on the latest official Formula 1 game.
“The experience has allowed us to expand our knowledge and connections into the growing industry.”
Throughout the high-octane racing, catering was provided as well as a tour of Williams Racing museum boasting a range of cars from their 46-year history!
Logan Exley, a Level 3 Esports, Enterprise and Entrepreneurship student, said: “We had an excellent time at Williams Racing Experience Centre competing on behalf of Barnsley Griffins. The experience has allowed us to expand our knowledge and connections into the growing industry.”
Enzo Guarini, Esports Course Leader at Barnsley College, added: “We had a fantastic day visiting and competing at Williams Racing/Williams Esports. The facility and experience were mind-blowing.
“Well done to our students Logan Exley, Jamie Swift and Kasper Dziobiak for competing. This experience is brilliant for the students entering the Esport and F1 industry.
“Luke Swaby our Esports tutor has done an excellent job coaching the team, putting the hours in to allow the students to have an amazing experience.”
