Team Vortex Bespoke Car Wash!

Team Vortex (Scottish Development Champions 2023) are doing a car wash to fundraise for our F1 in Schools National Final! We are teaming up with Lamborghini and Project 21, a professional car valet and detailing company, to offer a bespoke car wash to the community. It will run on Friday 12th May, 10:00 o’clock until 15:00 in the Leith Academy School car park. We are very excited for the event so please bring your cars down! We recommend a donation of £10 for the car wash!

We also have some exciting visitors coming throughout the day (including Radio Forth 1), so come along to support!

We look forward to seeing many of you on the day! Team Vortex
