Get It Made announce sponsorship of LU Motorsport for 2021-22

Manufacturing company Get It Made have announced that they are to sponsor Loughborough's Formula Student Team, LU Motorsport, for the 2021-22 season. 

The company, who offer CNC machining among other services, are supporting the team with their build this year as they switch to a fully-electric vehicle.   

Formula Student is an international competition for university students to design, build and market a small single-seat racing car in which they then compete against each other in static and dynamic events. Students from across the university, as part of LU Motorsport, work as a team to manufacture, develop, test, and then compete against other teams at Formula Student events. Unlike some Formula Student teams, LU Motorsport is entirely organised and run by the students, with guidance from academic and technical staff only when required. This means that the team is not only responsible for producing a brand new car every year, but also all finances, health and safety and the business side of running a motorsport team.Team members come from all over campus and could be studying any degree: it is their passion for motorsport that unites them.
