Teams compete to make Formula Car

Teams from universities across the world have once again entered a competition to design and build a single-seat race car.

The car that wins the Formula Student competition will compete at Silverstone.

After our best ever result last year, finishing 34th out of 76 competing teams, this year Mobil 1 Team Sussex is aiming to break into the top 20.

This team comprises fourth year and third year Mechanical and Automotive engineering students.

There are also product design students, business students and media students supporting the team.

The team includes  fourth year students Alex May, David Foster, Daniel Payne,  Ben Verrecchia,  Vasileios Thalassinos, Reza Rafizadeh-Farahani, Martin Soeding and Daniel Sackey.

Formula student is a highly exciting event that taps into the academic prowess, practical know-how, and sheer competitiveness of young minds all over the world.

The objective of the competition is for teams to build a racing vehicle that can complete a range of tasks. These include a number of dynamic and static functions.

The team also has to produce a competitive car on a tight budget.

Currently the team is in the design phase with some of the parts in the early stages of being created.

The team is on a tight schedule to get the car designed, built and tested before the launch event in June.

The launch event will be on 13 June this year and the competition will be from 12 to 15 July.

There is no main prize for the winner as such; there is just the experience and the prestige this competition brings the universities and students involved.

The competition will be tougher this year with some serious regulation changes being put into place.

They rely upon the support of the whole campus community, from lecturers to students; everybody can get involved.  To support the team you can become a member of the Nosecone club.

Membership requires a minimum donation of ten pounds which allows you to have your photograph placed on the nosecone of the finished vehicle.

Five pounds of the donation goes to the ‘Help for Heroes’ charity.

For more information and to keep up to date with the team’s progress follow the Mobil 1 Team Sussex page on Facebook at facebook.com/teamsussex, or on twitter at @Mobil1Sussex.
