Meet Ben Marshall, a student from Phoenix College, Ballarat who loves creating miniature F 1 cars and competing in the international 'Formula 1 in Schools' program. Ben is the Development Engineer in the combined 'A 1 racing' team from Victoria and Queensland (Pine River's State High).
I originally hoped to do this video over a year ago for ABC Open 110% category but was not permitted. It is great l have finally told this story under 'My Crazy Passion' project title. Being a novice, made multi tasking filming, interviewing and sound very difficult and editing this video alone also a HUGE challenge. It is lucky l am a very determined person. I still have so much to learn. I do love putting wonderful stories out there, regardless of the hurdles. I am hoping it will get easier!
Thank you to the Victorian A 1 racing team that took part in the filming of this video, Dylan Sexton (Chief Design Engineer), Casey Shevlin (Graphic Designer), Sam Young (Collaborations Co-ordinator) and of course Ben Marshall (Development Engineer). Thank you also to Christof Muller (Phoenix College, A 1 racing team Co-Ord. teacher) for chasing up consent forms and co-ordin. contact with students.
