 “… I believe Formula Student is a great opportunity as part of an engineer’s training. It encourages people to taste much of what your future career has to offer: acquiring knowledge, skills, organisational abilities and applying them to achieve the best result for a team. That also means effort, hard work, adaptability, learning how to cope with other people, frustrations and, hopefully, the rewards of success.”  “Well done for participating in Formula Student! It takes good planning, great team work, sound engineering, a (big) level of risk and innovation, and without doubt, hard work. It will set you apart, and allow you to develop and demonstrate the softer non-academic skills that are as equally important”  “I am honoured to be a patron as I believe Formula Student to be an excellent way to promote the value of engineering through real project work, culminating in a fantastic racing event”

 

KU e-Racing would like to say a big thank you to all our sponsors who helped make our bid in Formula Student 2014 a huge success!

  • UK’s highest scoring Formula Student electric team

    We are Kingston University's e-Racing team. We have held onto our title as the highest ranking UK electric team for a second consecutive year.

    This year we are looking to raise the benchmark for UK electric teams by being the first to introduce in-hub motors to our car, along with an electric differential. Also this year we are looking to compete in not only the UK Silverstone Event, but also the European Formula Student events.

    We hope to secure sponsorship funding able to run year on year encouraging more students to become creative in the Automotive and Motorsport field.
