The University has invested £10 million in transforming the engineering facilities at its Telford Innovation Campus in Priorslee, including creating new workshops with two car bays and providing benches and professional tools to support the students’ work on its own Formula Renault racing car.

The UWR is the only University competing in this season’s F3 Cup competition and will take part in various races over the next few months at premier national venues. These include Brands Hatch and Silverstone as well as the Snetterton 300 circuit and Oulton Park.

At the most recent round at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit on 14 and 15 May, the team enjoyed a string of podiums over the weekend, thereby ensuring a good points haul with 3rd, 2nd and 1st place finishes.
