About Warwick Racing and Formula Student
At Warwick University, Formula Student is undertaken as a 4th year undergraduate project. It involves designing, building and marketing a single seater racing car in a multidisciplinary team. This team, Warwick Racing, will then compete with the car in an international competition held annually at Silverstone race circuit. Involvement in Formula Student is highly prestigious and widely recognised by employers as an opportunity to develop core business, team working and problem solving skills.
What's in it for you?
Formula Student already has a high profile within the School of Engineering and we are working towards raising awareness of the project to the university as a whole. We have exhibited our car on campus to thousands of students and it regularly attracts interest.
The profile of this project, both within WMG and the School of Engineering would lead to excellent exposure of your company not just in the university but also to industry partners and experts.
It would be possible to use our project for your own research and development of parts and we would be willing to provide case study feedback. Formula Student is an ideal platform on which to test components and gain real-world data. Subject to terms and availability, there is also the opportunity to borrow the car for your own marketing events.
As mentioned previously, we have already achieved success in motorsport and we would be excellent ambassadors for your company at the Formula Student competition at Silverstone next year. Your company logo would be displayed on the car itself, our pit boards and on our website. This is a unique promotional opportunity.
If it is of interest to your company, we are also able to provide direct access to some of the best and most highly regarded graduates in Europe. We are happy to arrange events for you to speak directly to students, to leave promotional material in student pigeon-holes and to look into other activities that you may find beneficial for recruitment.
What's in it for us?
The success of our project depends on the funds we have available - and these are almost entirely raised through sponsorship. The money, equipment or services that you sponsor will be used to give us the best possible opportunity to continue our success.
How do I sponsor?
We would be delighted to hear from you and are greatly appreciative for all types and degrees of sponsorship. Reputations of both the University of Warwick and our sponsors will be enhanced through involvement in this project. Warwick Racing will continue to strive towards developing mutually beneficial relationships with all our partners. Interested in giving your company exposure among thousands of Warwick graduates?
