Carbon Fibre Monocoque
One of the key developments for UBRacing’s 2016 car is our carbon fibre monocoque. Over the winter, we successfully manufactured our first ever monocoque, which can be seen in the photographs below, allowing this year’s car to be lighter than ever before. In conjunction with the aerodynamic package we are currently developing, we hope to ensure optimum handling during this year’s Formula Student competition.
We were able to manufacture this element of the car due to the support we received from PRF Composite Materials, who provided our materials, and BRP Composites ltd. who have provided the necessary facilities. Both companies are crucial sponsors for this year and, their support has been invaluable. We hope to continue these beneficial relationships as we move forward.
