Forrestburn Hillclimb Track Demonstration

This week the team took UGR-18 to Forrestburn Hillclimb track to do a demonstration run. The visit was organised with Monklands Car Club as part of our outreach programme to increase engagement with the local motorsport community and was attended by local college students and members of Scottish Motorsport. Despite the freezing conditions we managed to get UGR-18 out on a few laps of the hill climb track, with our driver Neil describing the experience as “absolutely awesome!”. We also managed to collect some data from the laps which will be useful justifying suspension design and improving our mathematical model simulations of the car. The event marked the last run of UGR-18, but was definitely a fitting farewell!
