Car History

All of our cars are designed by students and manufactured in-house where possible, with the assistance of the UTS Machine Shop and our generous sponsors. Each year we endeavour to enter a new vehicle into the Competition, redesigning and optimising designs from previous years and beginning a new manufacturing process. Our cars are designed to meet technical and safety specifications and rules set by the Competition, and our team members are responsible for managing a budget to purchase materials and parts.
