What an exciting event! The action-packed race included 10 amazing competitors, some bad lip reading, and a photo finish.
The race was organized into 3 Heats. Heat 1 had all 10 drivers competing for 6 spots in Heat 2. Their order of completion determined their matchup – 1st v 6th, 2nd v 5th, 3rd v 4th.
In Heat 2 the winner of the 3 matchups advanced.
In Heat 3, the first to finish was crowned the champion.
Heat 1 was an exciting race that displayed many approaches to the same problem. In the end, the 6 to advance (in order of completion, 1-6) were Kenda, George, Harriet, Jarrod, Claire, and Nicole.
In Heat 2, the matchups were Kenda v Nicole, George v Claire, and Harriet v Jarrod. George and Jarrod both won their matchups finishing in very speedy times. The matchup of Kenda v Nicole was a nail-biter and required a slowed-down instant replay. In the end, Nicole edged out Kenda by under a second to advance to Heat 3.
Heat 3 showed us a couple different approaches – George and Nicole working mostly in a Formula and Jarrod using multiple tools to solve the problem. Jarrod crossed the finish line first and is your 2021 Grand Prix Champion! Congrats, Jarrod!
I would like to thank our 10 finalists (listed below) and everyone that competed in the prelims. We hope to see you at the next Grand Prix!
