Formula Student cars are expensive, and so everyone at UGRacing is extremely appreciative of all of our financial sponsors, suppliers and contributors. Without this support it would be impossible to do the work we do, achieve the results we have, and provide the educational platform for giving our members the best possible university experience.
Thanks to everyone who supports our team!
