Wixroyd are pleased to announce that we are continuing our sponsorship with Team SURTES for a second year into the 2018 season. This is an exciting venture for us as Wixroyd are proud to invest in the engineers of tomorrow and support the team with their innovative designs and ideas. Wixroyd are well known for supplying quality parts to the engineering industry as well as offering advice to our customers for their applications. We enjoyed working with the team and helping them to build the car by using our parts, as with last year we would like to wish the team the best of luck for the season and we will keep you updated with their progress for 2018.
Team SURTES became one of the first UK teams to successfully compete with an electric vehicle at any of the Formula Student events, the team was one of only three electric UK teams to successfully pass the scrutineering and compete in the endurance. This year they are aiming to be the top UK EV team and with a top 20 finish in the Class 1 and top 5 in the Class 2 at the championship in July.
Last year marked the start of the new strategy within Team SURTES and saw the teams first ever Class 2 car compete at the UK competition. The team now operates a two year cycle on cars with a team of engineers designing and building a Class 2 car to compete, before refining the car further in the following year based on competition judges’ feedback to compete in Class 1 the year after.
