Thorite are proud to be sponsoring Team Hare, a group of innovative young engineers from the University of Huddersfield, who have designed and built a single seat racing car to participate at Formula Student, which runs from 17th - 21st July 2019.

Formula Student is Europe's most established educational engineering competition, seeing over 100 university teams from around the globe, travel to Silverstone to compete in static and dynamic events that stringently tests their preparation and skills.

Formula Student usually forms part of a degree-level project and is viewed by the motorsport industry as the standard for engineering graduates to meet, transitioning them from university to the workplace. It is a kite-mark for real-world engineering experience, combining practical engineering experience with softer skills including business planning and project management.

Team Hare have been involved with Formula Student for 20 years and are amongst the UK’s most established and professional teams. Thorite have now sponsored Team Hare for the last three years, where we supply pneumatic componentry, engineering tooling and provide specific pneumatic training courses to support their efforts during the development process.
