The Diss is Done


Over the last few weeks our team have been multitasking working on the car with completing their all important group dissertation! The final report was split into three sections: Mechanical, Electrical and Managerial which in total consisted of 473 pages and 112,672 words!

On the 9th of June they were submitted.

Unlike most dissertations, there was no bound paper copy for this beast, instead trees were saved as only an online submission was necessary. However, this did not stop the electrical team getting their photo of this momentous occasion in the sun as shown in the picture above!

An inside view of Lancaster FS

Big p

Lancaster Formula Student team have joined forces with McGill Productions who are creating two professional videos for our FS18 vehicle and we are so grateful that they have now also decided to sponsor our project too!

The first video will show the viewer the processes the team have gone through to create our fantastic electric vehicle while the second video will be a pure promo video to show off our finished car in all it’s glory.

The videos will be shown at our launch event on the 6th of July and then they will be posted up onto our website and social media pages! Watch this space!

Floor Power

concept 1

Our floor design is now complete and with some final tweaks to the bodywork design, our aerodynamic package is ready to be sent off to be manufactured! We are working with one of our sponsors Allscope who are turning our designs into a reality, only a few weeks to go until we get to see it all in the flesh.

And just like that…


And just like that… the motors have been removed from their test rig and perfectly placed into our car. While the finishing touches are being made to our accumulator set up the motors were tested from a separate supply. Finally our wheels have movement and they are fast! Just as predicted, Lancaster are looking like a real threat for this years competition!
