What is Formula Student

Formula Student is an international event organised in the UK by the IMechE for engineering students to design and manufacture a single-seat racing car and compete at an annual competition at Silverstone race circuit.

It’s held at Silverstone  every year on the weekend after the British Grand Prix and is sponsored by companies such as Jaguar Land Rover and Ricardo. Teams of students representing universities from around the globe compete in 4 race events including acceleration and endurance, as well as being assessed in 3 non-technical events which test the design and manufacture of the cars in a range of situations.

Who We Are

We are a group of passionate and ambitious 4th year Engineering Masters students from Lancaster University. This project not only forms a huge part of our IMechE accredited degrees, but also enables us to develop our real industry skills and gives us the opportunity to represent our university on a global stage.

Our Goal

As a first class racing team with so many keen students on board with the project, we’re aiming to design and build a robust, high performance electric vehicle capable of competing against the best universities from around the world.
