Unveiled: the Team Bath Racing 2012 Formula Student car

The University’s Formula Student team, Team Bath Racing, unveiled their 2012 competition car on campus last week.

The team of 26 students from the Faculty of Engineering spent a year developing the designs for the car, and a further year building the vehicle in the Mechanical Engineering workshops.

Working around the clock, they finalised the build just in time for the launch this week and will now test and fine-tune the car ahead of the IMechE Formula Student race at Silverstone in July.

Team manager, Will Snyder, said: “We were thrilled that so many people came out to see the launch of the car. We’ve made lots of improvements to previous groups’ designs and we’re confident that this is the vehicle that will take us to podium position at Silverstone.”
