Students race to produce F1 dream
With the very expensive toys that make up F1 racing all packed back in their boxes and shipped to the next venue, budding auto engineers are tuning in to the skills competition Formula SAE-A 2015.
Sponsored by the global distributor RS Components, teams from Swinburne, Melbourne, Curtain, UTS, UNSW and Wollongong universities will compete to design, build and race a 600cc formula-style car.
In addition to giving engineering students valuable additional knowledge in cost effective means of producing a competitive racecars, the competition is seen as a means of gaining employment in the industry. An idea of the comprehensive approach taken to the competition can be gleaned from the results of last year’s competition won by Monash University.
