Formula Student is a platform where students are challenged to design and manufacture their own formula style race car based on a set of rules given by Institute of Mechanical Engineers, United Kingdom (IMechE). The event provides an ideal opportunity for students to test, demonstrate and improve their capabilities to deliver a complex and integrated product in the demanding environment of a motorsport competition.
