Event spokesman Malcolm Tyler said: “It gave young people the chance to explore the technology of Formula One in a hands-on way, to understand how the cars are made and how they work, and to find out about the huge range of career opportunities available in motorsport.

“Bourne Racing Motors Ltd provided a short film about the history and potential future of motorsport in the town while Hall and Hall kindly brought along a collection of past Formula One cars.

The free event was open to all while staff and pupils attended from Bourne Academy, Bourne Grammar School, Willoughby Academy, Bourne Westfield Primary Academy, Bourne Abbey Primary Academy, Bourne Elsea Park Primary Academy, Edenham Primary Academy, Morton Primary School and Thurlby Primary Academy.
