We are currently building a new FSAE car (Abi) which is expected to be completed by this year’s competition.
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 to gain real life experience, preparing them for the workforce.
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.
