Chassis & Steering

Members enjoy multiple benefits and opportunities in the Team:

First and foremost, we are going to build a REAL race car. Starting from concepts, designs, verification, to manufacture and assembly, the processes are to be done by members of the team. The final product, our race car, will be driven on circuit during competition to compete against other teams. It will be a great chance for you to earn a lot hands-on experience in practice.

New members will be given the opportunity to participate and lead the teams UK division that participates in the prestigious Formula Student UK in 2022. Members will be responsible for the design of their car, and prove their design using various simulation tools. This will be a part of the members grooming process as they prepare themselves to eventually join our primary FSEC team.

Our team has been in constant collaboration with different companies in different area of expertise. We work together on producing the race car. It is an opportunity for members to get familiar with the practice of the related industry. Members can even have the chance to gain internship or obtain a job in our sponsor company. Members will be awarded Certificate of Appreciation from team advisor to accredit his performance and contribution to the team.
