ABOUT US

We are Salford Racing, the University of Salford's Formula Student Team. Comprised of students from a variety of disciplines we focus our efforts to plan, design and build a race car to compete in the IMechE Formula Student competition. Salford Racing’s team is comprised of engineering, business, and media roles whom all closely work together to achieve the most from the great opportunity Formula Student provides.
The Passion of the team was felt during the recent Formula Student 2021 event. Despite the challenges we faced, we arrived at the live event in Silverstone, to gain valuable feedback from the judges. The team had an amazing experience, being able to network with other like-minded individuals at an energetic and exciting event. The car is developed and manufactured in-house using the skillset of our team, parts that cannot be created using our facilities are sourced from local manufacturers with whom we have strong ties.

Our key partner is the University which provides vital facilities, essential in manufacturing our in-house parts. This is mostly done with the help of the MakerSpace team which hosts the Morson Engine Room.

Formula Student is a student engineering competition held annually in the UK. Student teams from around the world design, build, test, and race a small-scale formula style racing car.
