Support Paradoxum in the F1 in Schools World Final

We are Paradoxum, an international collaboration team in the F1 in Schools competition. We are comprised of two teams formerly known as:
Thrust Vector (Australia) - 1st place in Development Class
Celeritas (United States) - 4th place in Professional Class

We will be participating in the 2019 World finals in Abu Dhabi towards the end of November this year.

The F1 in SchoolsTM competition is the largest school-based competition in the world consisting of over 17,000 students, from 44 different countries. It requires students to design and manufacture miniature F1 cars, capable of producing speeds of over 100km/h over a 20 metre track, give various presentations about the car and brand, and construct a trade display.

In our respective National competitions, between us, we took home the awards for Best Engineering CAD and CAM, Best Engineered Car, Best Verbal Presentation, Best Marketing, The Sponsorship award and The Innovation Award.

A major part of this competition is collecting sponsorship, this helps support our travel costs, accommodation, jerseys, trade display costs, and manufacturing our car. We have estimated that we will need to raise approximately $35,000 to take us to the world finals, so if you are interested in supporting our journey, please donate.

By donating to this GoFundMe you will be supporting the Australian branch of Paradoxum. If you wish to sponsor us, please send an email to for our sponsorship prospectus. All donations and sponsorships are greatly appreciated as is sharing this link with people you know. We understand that raising this amount of money is no easy task, but all donations count towards our team and we will make sure to do you all proud at the World Finals in Abu Dhabi.
