WARWICK State High School's CO{-2} drag competition went off with a bang yesterday and teachers were impressed with the quality of work.

Industrial technology and design teacher Jack Van Hoof said Year 9 students had had to design and build cars.

"They have been busy this year manufacturing their cars," Mr Van Hoof said.

"There have been some interesting concepts."

There are three categories: General shop A; outlaw; and support group.

Mr Van Hoof said it was not just a school competition.

"The top four cars from each division will get to compete in the state titles in Maryborough," he said.

The fastest car needed the right combination of friction, mass and drag.

The general shop division was won by Josh O'Sullivan, whose vehicle had an average speed of 1.068 seconds.

Support group winner Troy Mclean's car clocked an average speed of 1.102s.

Carlos Spragge claimed victory in the outlaw category with an average speed of 1.086s.
