Team Bath Racing are hoping to raise £10,000 to allow us to compete at the highest level of Formula Student, in Austria and Germany this Summer. Competing in Europe not only allows our engineers to further advance their engineering skills and knowledge but also gives us an opportunity to represent the best of the UK's engineering talent on an international stage.
Team Bath Racing (TBR) is one of the UK's premiere Formula Student racing teams. Founded in 2000, students from the University of Bath design, build, test and race a single seat race car to compete against teams from all over the world. Team Bath Racing boasts a rich history of building event winning cars. We are the UK's most decorated team, are only one of two UK teams to have ever won a Formula Student competition (FS Czech 2016) and are the only UK team to have ever held a top 10 world ranking (2016-17).
The 2019 team is comprised of 25 final year engineering students, who specialise in a variety of disciplines: Mechanical, Automotive, Aerospace and Electrical. Many of our team members have had the opportunity to complete many high profile placements with companies such as BP, Mercedes F1, Williams, Nissan and Airbus thanks to Formula Student.
Attending European events has become a large part of the TBR program and we hope you can help us continue our story in 2019.
Initially created in the 1980s, Formula Student is an international design and business competition that now has over 700 registered teams worldwide. With 16 competitions across the globe, and classes in internal combustion powered, electric and driveless cars, the series aims to put students at the forefront of todays engineering design.

Attending this year's European competitions will cost TBR around £25,000. That works out at £800 per team member. The costs:
The European Tour is a hugely worthwhile experience and we would love as many team members to attend as possible. However, we currently do not have the funds to be able to do this. With any kind donations, you can help us get to the continent and take on the worlds best!
How could a donation help?
What's more, the University of Bath Alumni Fund have agreed to match any donation that is made up to £5,000, so your support would be doubled!
All donors will get their name printed on our 2019 race car so wherever we go, you'll be will us!
We'll keep you informed on our progress throughout the summer and hopefully, there will be some silverware to bring back too!
