THE BRIDGE ACADEMY LECTURE SERIES - MARCH 2014
The week commencing 10th March saw the start of The Bridge Academy Lecture Series. We were lucky to have Steve Nevey of Red Bull Formula One speak to students about F1. He exposed some of the secrets behind F1 in relation to the Engineering, Mathematics, Physics and Technological Developments which keep F1 the most watched sport worldwide.
