The Need For Speed

University of Technology Sydney: Motorsports Electric

Client Success Summary

Aerodynamic design takes UTS: Motorposts Electric the extra mile.

Every year, university students across the world answer a detailed brief to design and build an open-wheeled formula race car for the Formula SAE (FSAE) competition. This year the UTS: Motorsports Electric team consisted of around 30 students from a variety of academic disciplines, including science, engineering and business – a perfect balance of academics and revheads, all dedicated to building the perfect race vehicle. 

The students fully understand what it takes to reach the level to be in with a chance of winning. This year that meant advanced design capability and the ability to incorporate aerodynamics. That’s why UTS: Motorsports Electric partnered with Lenovo – to get the computing power required to design, test and redesign their model, to ensure the race car they built was at peak performance for the competition.
