Team Description

The UoP Racing Team is a racing team of the University of Patras(Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics) . We develop, design and manufacture a racing car that competes at the Formula Student series competition around the globe, alongside with hundreds of teams from all over the world.

Our team consists of passionate students divided in several modules with each module having one leader who coordinates the other members. Building a racing car in such a small amount of time with limited resources, it takes a lot of time and even more hard work to get the job done. The team only works when all students and their supervisors sacrifice their free time to the project.

Working in the team gives students a great opportunity to gain a lot of experiences and qualifications.The main goal of the team is education. Every year many new students start on a year of Formula Student, most of them have no or very little experience in designing and building a race car. Even though, they are allowed and needed to design a part of the car in their first year. Therefore team and each subteam are organized at the start of every season to teach the team vital knowledge and skills. Older members of the team will assist the newcomers during the year, assuring the quality of the work and further educating the new engineers. Most members indicate that their year, or years, was one of the most educating experiences of their study.
