Bri-Stor Group Apprentices Take 1st Place In The Stone Soapbox Derby

 

Congratulations to the Bri-Stor Group first year apprentices on finishing 1st in the junior category of the recent Stone festival Soapbox Derby.

For the third consecutive year, apprentices from both Bri-Stor Systems & Alpha Manufacturing competed in the local event, having designed and built their own racers. Two teams competed in the race but for the first time, teams were mixed from the two sister companies.

On a rainy day in nearby Stone town centre, a timber pirate ship and Fools and Horse inspired Robin Reliant lined up at the start line. Although both finished the course in good times, it was the bright yellow Trotters Trading racer that took first place with the fastest downhill time and even managed to catch some serious air over the ramp obstacle.

The Stone Festival and Soapbox Derby have become an important part of our apprentice first year program, with the young engineers working in teams to design, build and test their racers. With the entirety of Bri-Stor and Alpha manufacturing facilities at their disposal, they’re able to test their engineering skills and gain a solid understanding of various manufacturing processes.

Congratulations to both teams on their Soapbox racers and thanks to all involved in organising the Stone Festival.
