We are currently building a new FSAE car (Abi) which is expected to be completed by this year’s competition and our 2006 car (Betty) has been fully restored.
The project is largely extra curricula and is managed by the students.
We are responsible for:
- creating a project plan
- developing a budget
- securing sponsorship
- designing all manufactured components
- building and racing the vehicle.
Throughout the project the students develop many life-long skills which cannot be taught within a classroom environment.
It is a creative space for motorsport enthusiasts that gives real life experience in to the work field.
VUM SAE car
The VUM SAE car consists of a tubular steel chassis, which is powered by a motorcycle engine.
The car is designed using design and analysis tools such as Ricardo, Solidworks, ANSYS and OpitmumG to enhance its performance and reliability.
