The Formula Student World Competition is well underway, with the first event in Silverstone being completed by the LUMotorsport Team making a strong start to their year with their newly designed car.

The Team, pictured above at Silverstone Race Track last weekend, came out 35th overall, out of 108 teams from across the world - a great start to their year.

Loughborough results for all rounds:

  • Cost, Maunfacturing and Sustainability Event - 29th
  • Design judging - 23rd
  • Business presentations - 37th
  • Skid pad testing - 47th
  • Acceleration testing - 48th
  • Endurance - 24th
  • Efficiency - 27th
  • Sprint testing - 44th

I'm sure you will join us in congratulating the Team in completing all of their rounds and in coming 35th place at this stage of the competition.

We also wish them all the very best for their next round in Italy this weekend!
