10. Briefly outline the history of your team
Infinite racing began as a three person all female team in 2013, formed by team manager Freya with the help of her twin sister Bronte. From there Infinite were regional champs and got a wildcard to nationals. Bringing on a helping hand to prepare was Christina our Manufacturing engineer. After placing fourth at the 2014 nationals Infinite decided to have one last and final crack at getting to the world finals. We brought on our graphic designer Tara and worked through to nationals again. Although we once again placed fourth, we were offered the wildcard to compete at the world finals in 2015.

13. What do you think makes your World Final team unique from other teams?
We are an all-girls team. Think Pink, Think Infinite. When we enter a competition other teams notice when we arrive. Our standout presence offers our sponsors greater return for their investment. We look professional, present professionally, and this makes us unique from other teams.
14. Magic moment - What has been the most exciting F1 in Schools experience your team has had so far?
The chance to represent Australia and our school at the World Finals.
15. We can laugh now - Tell us about one of your team’s funniest moments, maybe it wasn't so funny at the time!
Looking back our funniest moment would be the last regionals race we competed in. we showed up with an untested car. Cadet teams all gathered around to see a very impressive car run the track, pushing the limits of engineering. With all eyes focused on the time we watched as it exploded into pieces. F1 is all about learning and we learnt a lot of lessons that day about having a reliable car and how to rebuild a car in under 5 minutes using only super glue. We remember all having a good laugh that day and still won outright, so never give up.
16. What is the biggest challenge in this competition?
The biggest challenge for us has been time constraints and working around school commitments, we have one allocated time a week to work together so it can be extremely difficult. Any extra time like holidays or a class that we miss in school is always an advantage.
17. What are you most looking forward to at the WFs?
Infinite are looking forward to competing against so many different teams, meeting people from other countries and being able to showcase what we have done through our journey in the F1 in schools competition.
18. What are your expectations for the WFs?
The world finals we believe will be a tough competition, amazing learning experience and opportunity for our team.
19. Do you watch/are you interested in F1? Who’s your favourite driver(s)?
