HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A group of local students are making their way to England to compete in the Greenpower electric car race finals.

The Huntsville team left for England Wednesday afternoon. The team is made up of students from the school district's Center for Technology.

In June, they had an impressive showing in the regional race, placing 13th out of 50 teams.

The students are excited about the opportunity.

"We're going to the finals. Not many people expected us to get there completely, and I didn't expect it that much, but we're here, we're going. I'm not complaining. Nobody is complaining about it," said team member Sean Webb.

The finals take place this weekend.
