Annual Launch Event at the National Waterfront Museum
Swansea University Race Engineering (SURE) is launching the S18, a formula style single-seated race car, on 15 June 2018 at the National Waterfront Museum. This third annual launch event will see the team unveil 2018’s car, the S18, showcasing its new livery, vehicle design, and most importantly, the hard work and dedication from all members of the team who have made it possible.
SURE is a team of students from Swansea University. Each year, the team is tasked with the design, build and race of a single-seated race car under the Formula Student race series. This year is no different with over a hundred students from varying discipline of engineering, as well as non-engineers, working together to build the S18 car to race on the Silverstone Circuit in July.
Formula Student is Europe’s most established educational engineering competition and the process of preparing and partaking in the competition helps students gain practical knowledge to complement their degree. The competition encompasses a series of static and dynamic events designed to challenge all aspects of the car whilst vigorously testing engineers in areas such as research, design, manufacturing, testing, marketing, management and finances. The demanding environment of motorsport competition enables SURE members to experience real world engineering and prepares them for their job in industry.
Additionally, SURE partake in various events and school visits to promote engineering to encourage future generations to pursue engineering.
Kay Tor is the SURE Team Principal. She said: “Being part of formula student is time consuming but also extremely rewarding; our team members work hard throughout the year, balancing their commitment to SURE with their study responsibilities. It is a challenging feat of engineering, but the thrill and the experience make it all worthwhile”
The SURE 3rd Annual Launch Event 2018 will take place in the National Waterfront Museum, Swansea. The event is free to attend. For further information:
