Formula Student have grown into the largest student motorsport competition in the world and 2013 FS saw the first triumph of an electric car over petrol-powered vehicles in any accredited motorsport competition worldwide.
It was in an editorial in the Race Tech magazine in the autumn of 1997 that helped sow the seeds for the mighty event that Formula Student has now become. It was a call to arms for British industry and academia to emulate what was happening in the USA with the popular Formula SAE event.
Ross Brawn OBE HonFIMechE, Team Principal, Mercedes AMG Petronas, Formula One Team, Formula Student Patron “Formula Student gives students an experience that can’t be taught in a lecture theatre or seminar; it offers an opportunity to gain hands-on experience and develop skills that are crucial to a successfull engineering career”
Patrick Kniveton, FIMechE FIET, President 2013-2014 Institution of Mechanical Engineers “During the past 16 years, Formula Student has evolved from a small-scale event attended by a handful of teams, to an International competition attended by thousands of students from around the world.”
