So the day finally came, with Newcastle Racing competing at Silverstone against 70 other universities from around the world, and we didn't disappoint! We officially became the first UK team in Formula Student history to get an electric car through scrutineering and onto the track!
This success was followed by Newcastle Racing posting the fastest electric vehicle time in the sprint, and placing joint first position alongside Surrey in the endurance event. All of these achievements are testament to the team’s hard work, building and developing the car over the last 18 months. We are now looking to the future, with plans already being put in place for the next generation car. In addition to these plans, the team is seeking more opportunities to show off our
current electric car!
