Universities from across the globe are challenged to design and build a single-seat racing car in order to compete in static and dynamic events, which demonstrate their understanding and test the performance of the vehicle.
Representing the University of South Wales are the USW Falcons, formed in 2015, who are aiming to enter the IMechE Formula Student competition at Silverstone in 2016.
The team comprises of students from the School of Engineering, as well as students from Business and Computing. With their combined skills and a budget from the University, they plan to design and build a fast and reliable car. Their mission is to create a fully functioning internal combustion powered car that can participate in all Formula Student events.
