LUMotorsport is made up of a number of students studying various degrees from Automotive Engineering to Business Management. Unlike other Formula Student teams, LUMotorsport is entirely organised and run by the student members, with guidance from the academic and technical staff only when required.
This means that the team is not only responsible for producing a new car every year, but also all finances, health and safety, and the business side of running a motorsport team. This tough task is made even more difficult by the fact that all of the work must be done around the team members on going degree courses.
After about 8 months of build and 1 months of testing the team will then compete against other universities in the Formula Student Competition.
Held in a series of international locations, this design competition challenges Formula Student teams from all over the world to put their car and their team through a series of tough challenges.
From an endurance 22km stint that tests the car's reliability to a series of events that test the team's knowledge of the car's design and cost, Formula Student events always prove to be enriching, social and challenging experiences.
"I thought the facility was very impressive and I enjoyed meeting the Formula Student Team - it is always interesting to see the new ideas of our future Engineers."
Sir Jackie Stewart
