Sussex Racing is the Formula Student team representing the University of Sussex for the 2021 IMechE Formula Student UK competition.
Our team consists of Masters Automotive Engineering students in their final year of study. Driven by innovation and passion we design, fund, and build a small single seater Formula 1 style racing car. Working closely with our team partners we hope to bring in new innovative parts to improve the overall performance of the car. Our motivated team will be working to complete this project alongside finishing their degree.
We are looking forward to announcing SR21 this coming summer.
Formula Student is an annual competition run by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and is Europe’s most established educational motor sport competion.
