We are Iota, a team with its eyes set on success.

Iota is the first Professional Class team from the Riverina, and Tumut High School; but that hasn't stopped us from achieving great things.

We are a team of six hardworking, dedicated young men; Bronson Sutton, Vince Wood, Corey Crain, Ethan Parker, Andy Dodds and Ethan Contessa.

Together we have contributed thousands of hours of time to the project and have reaped the rewards of doing so. Within our first competition season we have qualified to represent Australia at the 2018 Singapore World Finals held in September.

F1 in Schools is a rigorous, holistic, worldwide challenge which incorporates the use of design and technology into the real world.

Students are essentially put in charge of an F1 Company: from the designing of a miniature F1 car that reaches speeds of 80km/h, the manufacturing of said car, the team marketing, securing of stakeholders and management. It is all a part of the competition.

BRONSON SUTTON

Team & Brand Manager

Bronson provides oversight to the project as a whole, whilst also delegating and monitoring the progress of tasks which comprise it. He also manages the team's expenditure and finances. With his previous experience in the F1 in Schools Challenge he was not only able to lead a successful team, but also provide assistance to all other team members.

As Brand Manager, Bronson works closely with Vince to create a strong, recognisable
brand identity for all team publication, as well
as creating and updating the team website.

VINCE WOOD

Marketing Manager

Vince works continousy with multiple local and
regional media platforms to target several different demographics. He utilises media to advertise team events, whilst enhancing the recognition of the team throughout the Riverina and NSW.

Vince also works closely with Bronson to create a strong brand identity to be used in the teams marketing throughout the project.

COREY CRAIN

Design Engineer

Corey is in charge of the designing of our cars, 
deceleration system and trade display. He works closely with Andy to test and research different concepts that could be incorporated into our car. He also aids Ethan in the manufacturing process, to ensure that the
virtual design is perfectly replicated for our final competition cars.

 

ANDY DODDS

Research Manager

Andy incorporates multiple different techniques
into the research and and testing of our National Finals car. He works continuously with Corey to create a car design that is rule compliant, innovative and aerodynamic. He also provides Ethan with insight into the best materials and resources available so he can produce the best finish on our car. 

ETHAN PARKER

Manufacturing Engineer

Ethan works to transform Corey’s virtual designs into physical objects. He was new to both F1 in Schools and the manufacturing techniques used, but that didn’t stop him. He’s in charge of the manufacturing line and quickly learned how to control the 3D printer, CNC router and other manufacturing equipment to create our competition cars.

VTX-15


From the beginning of our journey we have been pushing the boundaries of what we can and cannot do. The ongoing pursuit to engineer the fastest, most efficient car possible fuelled the fire for constant evolution and innovation.

 

VTX-15 is the finalised evolution from fourteen National Finals tested and modified competition car prototypes.
