Motorsport - USM

Every year, the University of Strathclyde Motorsport (USM) team designs, builds, markets and races a single-seater racing car as part of the international Formula Student initiative.

About us

 

Every year, the University of Strathclyde Motorsport designs, builds, markets and races a single-seater racing car as part of the global Formula Student initiative, a series of international competitions focused on developing engineering and business talent in a practical, competitive and high-octane environment. Formula Student is an opportunity to develop many multi-disciplinary skills in either our Technical or Operations teams. With team members from a variety of different departments around the university, from years 1 - 5, there's a place in our team for everyone. Having just made the transition to an EV powertrain, it is an exciting time to be a part of the team!

 

What is Formula Student?

 

Formula Student is an international engineering and design competition in which teams of students design, build and race single-seater race cars. Cars are judged not only on racing performance during dynamic events, but also on design and build quality, financial efficiency, environmental impact and the car's appeal to an open race car market in the cost and business case presentations.

 

 

How do I get involved?

 

We have a team discord server where all our meetings are arranged, socials are organised and general internal communications take place. For the start of the new academic year, USM has made this server open access to all current and potential new members which can be accessed here. This gives you the opportunity to come along to some welcome events and get a feel for the team before deciding if you want to get involved in the project through the year.

 

While we are happy to take on new members throughout the year, bear in mind that a lot of our live teaching sessions and skills training occurs early on in the semester, so its always best to join as soon as possible so you don't miss out!
