The Car – SR18

For Formula Student UK 2018, Mobil 1 Sussex Racing have an 11 strong  Class 1 team from a diverse background including students from Mechanical and Automotive Engineering.

The philosophy for SR18 is “Elegance”, with the aim to create elegant solutions to some of the engineering problems the car has faced over the past few years. In order to achieve this, SR18 will be revolutionary for Mobil 1 Sussex Racing, particularly the Powertrain, with plans to downsize the engine from the CBR600, change fuel from petrol to E85, revert to a full space frame chassis and increase the wheel size from 10″ to 13″.
