About Us

Who are we?

We are HWRacing, Heriot-Watt University's formula student team. Each year we design and build a single-seat open-wheel racing car and enter it into the formula student competition at Silverstone.

What is formula student?

Formula Student is a student engineering competition held annually in the UK. Student teams from around the world design, build, test, and race a small-scale formula style racing car. The cars are judged on a number of criteria as listed below. It is run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and uses the same rules as the original Formula SAE with supplementary regulations.
