With the team’s final combustion entry, 2022 brought UGRacing the overall win at Formula Student UK and our strongest ever performance across Dynamic and Static events alike. As we look to the future 2023 season and beyond, we are excited to undertake our most ambitious projects to date – and dive into the world of Electric and Driverless vehicle technologies.

Technical Plan

For 2023, UGRacing will deliver 3 separate entries at Formula Student UK



Following 2 years of research and development and our electric vehicle prototype last year, 2023 will be the year UGRacing debuts our first EV entry at FSUK. Utilising the Emrax 208 MV LC motor, Bamocar d3 400/400 motor controller and a custom-made HV accumulator manufactured in-house, we aim to return competitive and willing to challenege once again for the top positions at competition. 


After achieving their first ever dynamic points at competition last year, our Driverless team will continue to refine their bespoke software and focus on real-world testing, as we look towards the long-term goal of manufacturing a fully driverless vehicle. 


We have found great success in previous years by encouraging junior team members take charge of a “design-only” entry to present to judges at competition, giving them the skills needed for future year’s design-for-manufacture. This year, we will be looking to manufacture the team’s first actuation systems and present an EV-ADS concept vehicle at competition. 

Mission Statement

At UGRacing, we aren’t just a team that builds a car: we are the foremost opportunity at the University of Glasgow for students to gain industry-style experience, and so are directly shaping the engineers of the future. We are proud of our holistic approach and the key qualities we strive to bring to every project: innovation, professionalism and passion.

Innovation is key to our competitive edge. Whether it be saving every gram of weight to create the best performing race car possible, incorporating the latest manufacturing techniques to get more work done quicker or coming up with an enterprising business pitch, pushing the boundaries of every aspect of the team is a substantial part of our DNA.

Professionalism is essential to our work. We aim to hold ourselves to industry standards and approach every task with due diligence, expertise and determination. The professional abilities displayed by our members – such as teamwork, attentiveness, self-motivation, adaptability to new challenges and communication skills – ensures UGRacing consistently performs at the highest level and prepares our members with the skills needed for the start of their careers.

Passion drives all that we do. We’re enthusiastic about motorsport, engineering, competition, working together, inclusivity, inspiring others to study STEM subjects and understanding how new technology can make automobiles more environmentally friendly. It is our common interests and our sense of comradery that motivates our team to work tirelessly each year and have fun while doing it.
