The Red Bull Trolley Grand Prix
takes place in the Auckland
Domain on April 10. See
news.co.nz to see a clip of Red
Bull trolley crashes at a
competition in Colorado.
A flying nun and a futuristic
Hummer will take to the racetrack
on April 10 to compete for glory in
the Red Bull Trolley Grand Prix.
Two Auckland schools are among
100 teams, selected from thousands
of hopefuls, who have been carefully
constructing trolleys for the big day.
Onehunga High School trolley
driver David Jepson says his team
has been working hard on the
steering and brakes and says the
trolley takes inspiration from the
popular science fiction video game
It's 2000 years away -- it's a
futuristic Hummer,'' David says.
There's plans for it on the com-
puter, you can take it from game
renders. It was either that or a
gumboot or a spaceship.''
David says the gumboot idea was
to fit with a Kiwiana theme.
Team member Matthew Hofmann
has been assisting with construc-
tion and says the creation may be
difficult to get into but is confident
in David's driving abilities.
Onehunga High associate princi-
pal Tom Webb says it's brilliant to
see the year 12 teams working hard
on weekends and after school.
Some of these guys are on the
robotics team and they've just come
back from the national competition
and they're straight into this.''
Head of technology teacher Robin
Ringwood says the teams started
the project as part of mechanical
Mr Ringwood pulled the team
together a week before the school
term started to make sure they had
David's done 90 percent of the
welding,'' he says.
St Mary's College is also
preparing to compete with its entry,
the flying nun, which is being built
at Onehunga High because it has
the right tools and space needed for
The trolley is papier mache over
chicken wire with a wood and steel
The team consists of driver Meher
Ghadiali, Jade Fepuleai, Gabrielle
Sheeham and Brittany Robertson.
Meher was selected as the driver
because she has her restricted
licence while the others don't.
Even though we're a Catholic
school we have a sense of humour,''
teacher Ang Whitlam says.
One of the sisters and the princi-
pal is coming on the day to watch.''
She says it's been great to be able
to share a construction space with
There's no way we could do it
otherwise, we don't have these
facilities. There's been some good
banter,'' she says of the two teams.
Our design is better. We have the
only female team and we have one
of two female drivers.''
Teams and their trolleys will be
judged on creativity, performance
and finish time.
