“Racing is life. Anything before, or after is just waiting”
We are a small, enthusiastic student motor sport team based at the University of Sunderland with a goal to design, test, build and race a single seater racing car for an international competition at Silverstone called Formula Student.
All cars are restricted by guidelines set by the organizers. The competition promotes various skills such as engineering, management, production, administration, accounting, marketing, advertising, public relations, teamwork, cooperation, leadership and working under pressure of deadlines, preparing them for life after University.
We are always looking to improve the prospect and skills of our team and its members, to enable us to be as strong and successful as possible. We feel with our training, support from the University of Sunderland and Institute for Automotive and Manufacturing Advanced Practice (AMAP) this team has a very bright future.
This year, Sun Racing will be designing, building and competing with their latest design for entry into the Formula Student event at Silverstone, scheduled to take place after the British Grand Prix.
This is what it’s really all about and what we’re all working towards, as it’s the first chance we’ll get to be actively involved and experience in a major Motorsport event at such a prestigious location.
To make it on to the track is an achievement in itself and will be something we can all be proud of.
