A very big well done to 10 year old Jack Hillery today, as Bandai Namco have revealed him as the winner of the latest Project CARS competition.
Along with Explore Learning and the expertise of racing driver Nicolas Hamilton, Jack was chosen as the winner from over a staggering 8,000 entries, all coming up with their design for the Car of the Future. Lee Kirton, PR and Marketing Director at Bandai Namco Entertainment stated:
We were thrilled to team up with Explore Learning on CAR of the future. Dreams, fun and inspiration are what games are all about. This couldn’t have been more evident in the childrens designs, the standard was exceptionally high but Nicolas certainly chose well, as Jack’s talent really shone through with his well thought out and striking design.
Nicolas Hamilton is also a winner in his own right. Despite his Cerebral Palsy, Nicolas’ ambition to be one of the top racing drivers in the world has not waned. This tenacity has led him to much success and he will soon become the first disabled competitor to participate in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, the top national motorsport series here in the UK. Speaking about Jack’s winning entry, he added:
I was really impressed by the standard of entries and the imagination behind the CARS of the Future designs. But Jack’s stood out to me, not only did it look great but he had been very creative in how the car would run and even how it would bend around corners! There was such great attention to detail, which is why he was my winner
Runners up included Peter Ioannou, Sahab Singh, Aneeq Shaikh, Sante Rusu and Jethan Smith, with them all winning themselves a bagful of Bandai Namco goodies. Finally, Carey Ann Dodah, Head of Curriculum at Explore Learning commented:
Our members really loved exploring what racing cars of the future would look like. We had an incredible response and the designs really illustrated their efforts and how much thinking they put into it. It was really pleasing to see the children not only being creative artistically but also very engaged with how their CARS would operate. Our members were so excited to take part and to meet Nicolas, who is such a great role model for our young members.
