Oxford University's brand new Formula Student racing team
Oxford University Racing is a team of undergraduate students from the University of Oxford that aims to build from scratch a single-seat electric race-car to compete in the annual IMechE Formula Student competition. With team members coming from across the undergraduate student body and across the world we are a highly passionate and ambitious team.
The project is entirely student run with the emphasis being put on undergraduates to run every part of the team from meeting with sponsors and designing the team website to the most technical parts of designing a working car. Ultimately the team will compete in both static events, such as a business presentation, as well as dynamics events; which test the limits of our car.
What is Formula Student?
Formula Student (FS) is Europe's most established educational motorsport competition. Backed by industry and high-profile engineers such Patron, Ross Brawn OBE, the competition aims to develop enterprising and innovative young engineers and encourage more young people to take up a career in engineering.
The format of the event is such that it provides an ideal opportunity for the students to test, demonstrate and improve their capabilities to deliver a complex and integrated product in the demanding environment of a motorsport competition.
The project usually forms part of a degree-level project and is viewed by the motorsport industry as the standard for engineering graduates to meet, transitioning them from university to the workplace. It is a recognised confirmation of real-world engineering experience
