Today we got UGR-19 out for her first test session at the back of the University! After a few wee electronic bugs and plenty of rain, our Head Engineer Kester was first in. Unfortunately, the session was red flagged by an especially large shower, but the team was still absolutely delighted to see the car run (as well as being pretty soggy).
Kester said “The engine is much smoother, the steering is much sharper, and it’s much quicker! Can’t wait to get back in…”
The team has an intensive testing schedule planned for UGR-19, so stay tuned for regular updates!
Showcasing the Uprights
A slightly different showcasing post today: it’s a video!
Our Head of Unsprung Mass, Cara Mackay, presented her Uprights design to the team earlier this year. Cara designed the Uprights as her final year project, and come September she will be working for Rolls Royce!
A massive thank you to Tannlin, who manufactured the Uprights for the team.
