Porsche Centre West London was delighted to sponsor Hermes Racing from Latymer Upper School in the F1 in Schools 2017 national competition.
Hermes Racing is a team of six ambitious sixth form students undertaking the challenge of creating a miniature Formula 1 car to be pitted against teams from around the country. On top of designing and manufacturing the miniature F1 car, the team ran a very successful marketing campaign; creating their own brand, maintaining social media channels and a Hermes Racing website, along with gaining sponsors.
The F1 in Schools 2017 national competition has received wide acclaim for bringing together the best young talents in mathematics, engineering and design to compete in the world of motorsport and Formula 1.
Will Peck from Hermes Racing said “The whole team would like to say a huge thank you to Porsche Centre West London, especially Lorraine Winder, for sponsoring our team. We are very fortunate to have received the full sponsorship from Porsche Centre West London and we will use this to enhance the performance of the car.”

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
