There was a chance to live life in the fast lane for some High Peak students recently.
Five students who had achieved the most points for the term had the opportunity to attend a track day where they climbed behind the wheel of and drove top of the range MX5 cars.
Competition for points was fierce throughout the term and all pupils had worked hard.
The first laps started out slowly while confidence was built up and by the second lap there was more acceleration! We may even have identified one young person who may have a promising career in the industry!
As the day went on, the young people were feeling confident enough to give a thumbs up or a wave to their fellow students and every second was enjoyed.
By the final lap there were huge smiles all round. Everyone was really supportive of each other and there was fun had by all.
The pupils described the day as "awesome" and one said: "The best day ever!” As well as driving the MX5 the students alsdo saw cars that had featured in the Fast and Furious movies as well as Gone in 60 Seconds.
