Blog #35: One Step Closer:
Hey guys! Mitchell here writing today's blog on behalf of the team, and we have some excellent news! We won the South Wales Regional Finals, and will be heading off to Birmingham for the UK Finals! The BCS Bloodhound (our junior team) also won the Bloodhound Class and will also be heading off to the UK Finals! We are now one step closer to achieving our goal of representing Wales/UK at the World Finals, but we need to get the UK Finals out of the way first! We've got a lot of preparation to do now ready for the Nationals, which includes gathering more sponsorship, adding more stuff into our presentation and getting there! We'd like to congratulate all teams who have qualified to the Nationals, and also congratulate the teams who have participated this year! We will try and update the blog as much as we possibly can.

Blog #34: Last Minute Preparations
Hey guys! Mitchell here writing today's blog! So after 10 months of solid work, effort and disappointment, we are finally nearing the Regional Finals. 2014 was a year of ups and downs for BCS Racing with members leaving the team and new members taking the reigns of the team. We also set up the BCS Bloodhound team who will also be competing in the Regional Finals and will attempt to take the crown of the Bloodhound Class. Now we are making the last preparations ready for Wednesday when we will see if all this effort has paid off. The cars are being assembled, the posters/stand are ready to go, portfolios printed out and team kit is on its way to HQ. We are getting increasingly excited as the hours count down! We also performed our presentations (BCS Racing and Bloodhound) to a group of teachers from Barry Comprehensive School and to a few sponsors including Alun Hurman from Arup. It went really well and improved our confidence! Now we wait, and we will be updating as much as we can over the upcoming week. Before we go, we'd like to thank everyone who has helped BCS Racing and the BCS Bloodhound group over the past 10 months and we want to let them know that all this effort is for you. We'd like to thank Alex Szaufnaser and Dr Allan Mason Jones from Cardiff University, Paul Lindsay from Aerospace Wales, the entire group at Arup, CEG Graphics for printing out our posters and everyone who has sponsored the team this season.
Once again thank you so much for you support and we hope that this season will reflect our effort and perseverance in the competition that has slowly consumed our lives!
