The FormulaClub-E development project is the work of an unparalleled team, bringing together one of the World’s largest race car manufacturers, and two departments from one of the UK’s top new Universities.

Nestled in the heart of Oxfordshire's Motorsport Valley, with 91.4% of our graduates going on to employment - many in Formula 1, Formula E and major suppliers to the Motorsport industry - Oxford Brookes’ Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences has an enviable reputation as a premier institution for Motorsport education, training the Automotive, Motorsport and Mechanical Engineers of the future.
Supporting MEMS in this project, the Business School provides strength in corporate, competitive & growth strategy, global business, international trade and foreign direct investment with subjects that focus on leadership, culture, motivation, practices, strategic human resource management and the management of the globalisation process. Competing in all F3 championships around the world, Dallara is the sole supplier of cars to the IndyCar, Indy Lights, GP2, GP3, Formula 3.5 V8, Renault Sport Trophy and Japanese Super Formula championships. Dallara is also supplying the chassis for Formula E, and this ideally places them to deliver an electric racing vehicle.

"The display went brilliantly", says a student, "the 'Dallara Book' with the front end went down a storm", pictured above a group of people, involved in the project, in front of a Dallara GP2 front wing used as a display item at the AutoSport autoshow to help people appreciate the design and the subtlety of the shapes involved as well as the material / manufacturing aspects.
