Engineering students from NUST-PNEC are on track for the world’s biggest student motorsport competition at Silverstone held in July.
The competition is the world’s largest student motorsport event and challenges student engineers to design, build and race a single seat racing car in one year.
Formula Student alumni have progressed to Formula 1, and hundreds more are now working at the world’s largest automotive firms helping to design and engineer the cars of tomorrow.
Applications were received from teams around the world, and 135 – including Interactive NUST Formula Student Team – have successfully claimed a place for the competition at the home of British motorsport.
Lining up at Silverstone will be 49 teams from UK universities, and the main Class 1 competition will see 30 electric vehicles and 80 cars with combustion engines.
Interactive NUST Formula Student Team comprises of 25 members who are all undergraduate engineering students working day and night for the success of the Project.
Jon Hilton, Chairman of Formula Student said, “It’s not an exaggeration to say that those students taking part are among the best young engineers in the world, and Formula Student provides them with a vital stepping stone in their careers. Whether they go on to work in Formula 1, or help design the aeroplanes of the future, these students will go on to make a very real impact on our society.
