A proving ground for the next generation of world-class engineers.
Formula Student is Europe's most established educational motorsport competition, backed by industry and high-profile engineers including Patron, Ross Brawn OBE. It tasks each team with producing a prototype single-seat race car — either in the autocross or sprint class. The competition culminates in a series of rigorous vehicle testing, as well as a team proposal to a hypothetical manufacturing firm aimed at justifying the project's economic viability.
From meeting with sponsors and designing the team website to the most technical aspects of engineering a working car, our project is entirely run by Oxford University students.
Meet our Partners
Our sponsors are the fuel that our team races on. They partner with us to provide essential financial resources, expertise, and equipment; our specialised teams then transform this into a deeply complex yet sustainable work of modern engineering. Our sponsors derive substantial value from liaising with young engineers at one of the most prestigious universities in the world. At the same time, they offer invaluable support in the development of innovative, affordable technology.
