City Racing Team

The City Racing Team offers our engineering undergraduates the opportunity to take part in the world's largest student motorsport event - Class 1 Formula Student.

Our City Racing Team takes part in the Class 1 Formula Student - the world's largest student motorsport event. Organised by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as a student-run project, Class 1 Formula Student gives students the opportunity to develop their skills and put them into practice.

The team will design and build a single-seat racing car, competing against 120 other teams and testing the car's speed, acceleration, handling and endurance at the world-famous Silverstone race circuit, home of the British Grand Prix.
