Formula Student is an annual competition in which student teams from universities around the world design and engineer a small, single-seater race car. The competition is run by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and is currently held at the Silverstone circuit in July. Teams are made up of students from different universities and compete under Formula SAE regulations.
Each team is marked on several criteria. These involve both static tests and dynamic tests when the engineering achievements of the team are judged and marked. For more information on the competition see http://www.formulastudent.com/
The Formula Student competition was held in July, where the Swansea Metropolitan Formula Student team were placed second in the UK and eleventh in the world. The team are exceptionally happy with this result and would like to thank all the sponsors involved.
After working extremely hard all year to get the car ready for the event in July at the famous Silverstone Circuit, England, the team were placed second in the UK and eleventh in the world. The team are exceptionally happy with this result, especially considering some of the other teams have a much larger budget and team.
Many improvements are being made to the car ready for the 2012 event, one of which swapping the current space frame for an aluminium honeycomb frame. Our main goal for the 2012 event is to come 1st in the UK and in the top ten of the world. Having more sponsorship would massively improve the likeliness of achieving this goal.
