The team is proud to have raised a total of £715 throughout the year, with Santander kindly matching £500 of the donation, thus bringing the grand total raised for Help for Heroes to £1215 – the largest sum the team has raised to date.

MIA, who has previously painted a Steinway concert grand piano as well as several life-size animal sculptures for cities across Europe, commented: “I always wanted to paint a car because I like to paint velocity. That’s what I was trying to achieve here – that each brushstroke would be full of movement.
“I always work very fast – I felt like I was driving the car with colours.”
Peter Field, the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex, and Cllr Lynda Hyde, the Mayor of Brighton and Hove, were present at the launch event to celebrate the work of the University’s young engineers.
The Mayor said: “This is a marvellous project to encourage and assist the students in gaining practical experience, and in applying the skills they are learning. And what an exciting project it is!”
The Lord Lieutenant added: “This car is an amazing demonstration of the students’ skills, and shows great teamwork. The students have been dedicated to getting it right, which should put them in pole position in terms of winning the race at Silverstone.”
