Ten Schools To Participate In Scout Car Clone

Penang Free School will be among ten schools to participate in the so-called "inaugural" Pedal Car Race.
Race gets good response

[...] Ten schools will be participating in the one-day event. They are Penang Free School, St Xavier's Institution, SMK Hutchings, SMK Haji Zainal Abidin, SMK Sungai Ara, Sacred Heart Secondary School, Chung Ling Private, Chung Ling High School, Han Chiang High School and SMK Chung Hwa Confucian.

"Our objective is to encourage Malaysians especially school children to love the environment and we hope it can also help to promote tourism in Malaysia, particularly in Penang, during Visit Malaysia 2007," said Penang Turf Club (PTC) committee member Alex Rodgers.

Rodgers also hoped that the participating schools would encourage their students to build their own pedal cars for next year's event. [...]
Sponsors are asked to pay five thousand for a car. With that amount of money, we could easily produce five scout cars of better quality than just the metal frames they are offering. Maybe we've to factor in inflation and the increase of metal prices since the last time we constructed a scout car, so let's say RM5k will be enough for three cars instead. Is the troop willing to take up the challenge of building a scout car to participate in next year's race and teach them a lesson for belittling the Scout Car Grand Prix?
