Student Society: Formula Student team

Mobil 1 Sussex Racing is the Formula Student team at the University of Sussex. In recent years it has surged in popularity, consisting of a diverse combination of 2nd, 3rd and 4th-year Automotive, Mechanical and Electronic Engineers, as well as a small team of Product Designers and Computer Scientists.

What is Formula Student?

While predominantly about the design and production of a single seat racing car, Formula Student is actually more about building future engineering talent, not just in design and manufacture, but also in management, marketing and people skills that are so vital in the modern world, across all sectors of employment.

Formula Student provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate their skills, enthusiasm, ingenuity and commitment to engineering excellence, and for industry to foster close links with academia to develop the people attributes they need for future success.

Formula Student is organised by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and involves students from all of our degrees.

See the students' own blog for details of the current car.
