Description

Hull University Formula Student (HUFS) is launching into the 2018 season! Join us for an introduction to the Formula Student competition, led by team co-founder Brian Houston, and discover ways you can get involved. Hosted by GKN's Paul Woodford, you can be first to get a look at this season’s car designs and hear about the Formula Student experience from some of our speakers including:


  • Guy Smith, professional racing driver, 2003 Le Mans 24hr race winner and ambassador and driver for Bentley Motors, racing with Bentley in the Blancpain endurance series.
  • Peter Weston, esteemed professional race engineer at David Appleby Engineering Ltd on one of two Aston Martin Vantage GT4 cars. Prior to his current role he was responsible for planning and co-ordination of engine products for series such as Le Mans 24hr (LMP1-L), Chief Engineer for Dyson Racing Team and project leader for Lola cars (including LMP1 1998 and 2000 design).
  • Ben Milhench, co-founder of Greenlight sports and entertainment. Ben has represented England and Great Britain in ice hockey, is a professional golfer, and has extensive commercial sports experience in golf (European Tour/Challenge Tours), the Premier League and Championship football, and Formula 1.

We invite you to:

  • Explore our vehicles, past and present, through our displays and the unveiling of our 2018 car design
  • Test your driving skills against Le Mans Winner, Guy Smith, in our new racing simulator challenge
  • Learn about all the opportunities to get involved and join our team!

There’s a long list of skills needed to successfully run a Formula Student entry, and you might have the key to unlocking the full potential of our team! Seize opportunities to learn new skills and showcase them in an international competition backed by big names in engineering and motoring! These include Mercedes AMG, Jaguar Land Rover and Bosch, and high profile ambassadors Paddy Lowe, Leena Gade and James Allison.
