This race team run professionally by our engineering students is part of the University’s commitment to produce graduates who can apply both theory and practice in industry. After the success of the UWR teams' debut year in professional motorsport; the University saw an opportunity to challenge themselves futher and took delivery of a Dallara F308 in early 2016 with the intention to run in the F3 Cup. A championship run by the MSV; the owner and operator of 5 of the biggest circuits in the UK. This challenge saw engineering students skills put to the test with the increase in technology and power. The University of Wolverhampton Race (UWR) Team celebrated huge success and finished second place in the 2016 in its debut year racing in the F3 Cup.
So far, this hands-on approach to learning has ensured 100% of graduates are working in the industry they love including Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport, Aston Martin and Rolls Royce.
