Formula Student UK

Formula Student UK is a student design competition organized by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers which challenges students teams to design, develop, fabricate, and build a small Formula-style race car. Formula Student UK brings together more than 80 teams from around the world to compete at the Silverstone Circuit. The cars are judged by industry specialists in a series of static and dynamic events where they receive points based on their performance. The winner of the event is the team with the highest number of points out of a maximum of 1000. The 2017 Formula Student competition was held at the Silverstone Circuit on July 20-23, 2017.
