As the team responsible for the design of each new car, responsibility for iterative, creative and successful concepts falls to us. From conception to completed design, the vast majority of components in UPR-13 are designed in house, by us.

Driver Environment Lead
Having been on the team for the last 2 years first as design engineer then consultant, I wanted to put my own mark on the team before completing my final year at university studying Mechanical Engineering. Being UPR13 UPracing Driver environment lead, the two main goals for this year were to have a new Tillet racing seat fitted to the car and an adjustable pedal box floor. Two things that will keep us in fierce competition with the rest.

I have been on the formula student team since UPR 09. I started as a design engineer in powertrain and designed several parts most notably of which was the Air intake on the UPR11. This involved CFD analysis to create an optimised and improved design. This year I have been promoted to Chassis team lead and have been using FEA to optimise the chassis, while providing Software mentoring for new members of team.
