This section will guide and provide you with tips and useful links so that you can design your own Test Driver Challenge F1 in Schools Car.

The Fusion 360 course at Step 1 taught you all the skills you need to now be able to design your own F1 in Schools car. From the Research & Investigation at Step 2 you will have seen that your Test Driver Challenge Car will be much simpler than the one that featured in the Fusion 360 course.

Remember - All Test Driver Challenge Cars must be designed around the Test Driver Car Template
