Welcome to Edinburgh University Formula Student.

Our team was established in October 2014, and we entered our first Formula Student competition at Silverstone, UK in July 2015, where we placed 6th in the Class 2 event.

In 2016, we entered the Class 1 event – which involves designing, manufacuring and racing a car – with a fully functional car. RaceTech Magazine rewarded our efforts with the Spirit of Formula Student award. We gained a huge amount of knowledge and experience at the event, which will help us for this year’s competition.

For 2017, we are aiming to improve our performance at Silvestone with a new, and better designed car. We hope to pass all the scrutineering checks to be able to race it.

Our team consists of over 90 members from a number of departments across the university, including engineering, architecture, business and economics, and we all have a passion for cars. To learn more about the event, head over to the Formula Student website where you’ll find loads of information about the event and the full results from last year.

Launch Event 2017

2017

Since our successful first competition, we have grown to over 3 times the initial number of members, and we hope to continue to inspire future undergraduates to get involved and get their hands dirty in the workshop!

We are split into 7 different sections to optimise our operation for 2017. Each member has a specific task within the following teams:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Chassis
  • Drivetrain
  • Electrical
  • Engine
  • Suspension
  • Business

View all members…

Powering our little racer will be a Kawasaki Ninja ZX636R engine, that will sit in a space frame chassis designed and welded in our own workshop!
