City Racing Team
City Racing is City, University of London's entry into the Class 1 Formula Student event and competition developed by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. The team is comprised of undergraduate third and fourth year Engineering students from the School of Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineering.
