Bournemouth University student and Formula 1 fan in pole position for trophy design prize
12:00pm Monday 12th May 2014 in News
BOURNEMOUTH University student and Formula 1 fan Chris Bryan is in the running to have a trophy he designed handed out to the winning drivers of the British and German Grand Prix.
The second year industrial design student is currently in the top 10 of the Santander Challenge, which has attracted hundreds of entries from students around the world.
The competition challenged students to design the official F1 trophy to be presented to the British and German F1 Grand Prix winners.
It will be decided by a public vote – with the top ten most popular entries going through to be judged by Santander, who will choose the winning design.
Chris, 20, pictured, has so far received more than 12,950 votes for his design, which features the Santander flame logo coming out of the back of the trophy.
He said: “The support I’ve had from friends and family has been amazing – my parents have been getting their work colleagues to vote and I’ve even had complete strangers commenting on my design and sharing it with their friends.”
Prizes for the student who creates the winning design also include a replica of their trophy and a trip for two to the British Grand Prix, including grandstand tickets.
You can see Chris Bryan’s design and vote at santanderchallenge.com until May 14.
