The BGA are dedicated to helping to bring through the next generation of Engineers in the UK.
Our new initiative is to partner with BGA Member Universities on their Formula Student Teams. We are proud to be sponsoring BGA Member Newcastle University's Formula Student Team.
If you are a BGA Member and are looking for Formula Team Sponsorship please get in touch.
From the Team:
"Newcastle Racing are Newcastle University’s Formula student team. The team are delighted to announce their partnership with BGA who will be sponsoring the Formula Student racing car for the coming academic year.
Formula Student is Europe’s most established educational engineering competition in which students use motorsport to demonstrate their engineering knowledge and test and improve their capabilities to deliver a complex and integrated product in the demanding environment of a motorsport competition. Newcastle Racing shall be competing in the electric vehicle category as part of the school’s drive to engineer a sustainable future and aim to compete at Silverstone in July 2022.
Recently the team began welding the chassis together and machining powertrain and wheel packages components. The electrical team has now completed much testing for all their systems and are ready to have their PCBs manufactured. The team expects the car to be completed by April 2022 and in the meantime, we hope to keep you updated with photos of the whole car’s progress over the coming months.
Once again, the team would like to express its gratitude to the BGA for becoming part of this story and supporting young engineers in STEM."
