We are very pleased to play a small part in the exciting times ahead for Oxford Brookes Racing. Following twenty years of success with combustion engines, the students have spent the last year planning, designing and building ‘Lily’, the team’s new electric car for the 2020 season – and we have powder coated the aluminium roll hoops in satin black. A small part but nonetheless vital.
In designing and building the car the students research and use the latest technologies, 3D printing being one example. Formula Student is the world’s largest student motorsport competition and challenges university motorsport engineering teams from across the globe to design, build and race a single-seat race car in one year. Oxford Brookes Racing is the most successful UK team in the winner’s circle of the Formula Student competition held at Silverstone. The cars are judged on their speed, acceleration and endurance, while the teams are put through their paces in terms of design, costing and business presentation skills.
We wish Oxford Brookes Racing every bit of luck for 2020.
