Help students who are passionate about Engineering to design, build and race a single-seat race car against teams from around the world. Then come along to see the car and meet the team!
WHO ARE TEAM HARE?
Team HARE (Huddersfield Automotive Racing Enterprises) are a group of students who represent the University of Huddersfield in the worldwide Formula Student (FS) competition. Run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, this is Europe's most established educational motorsport competition.
Each year a new team, drawn from the latest cohort of MEng Engineering students, come together to design, build and race a single-seat race car against teams from Universities around the world.
We are passionate about engineering and totally committed to this project!
Taking part in Formula Student gives us the chance to demonstrate our technical, engineering design, and manufacturing skills. We also learn important lessons on team working, time management, project management, budgeting and presentation: all things that any prospective employer will be looking for, thus improving our chances of getting jobs once we graduate.
Team HARE were the top-ranking University team in the UK in 2013!
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP...
This life-changing venture is almost totally funded by our efforts to raise sponsorship and donations, an integral part of the learning experience being a real-life baptism into the financial tribulations of race-team funding.
Amongst the most expensive things we need are tyres. That’s where you come in. No matter how amazing our design or how hard we work to complete it, if we don’t have tyres, we’re not going anywhere!
Our target of £750 will enable us to buy four tyres for our race car. As soon as the 4 weeks are up and assuming we reach our target, we will contact you about your rewards!
Here's a taster of the tyres in action...
CAN'T DONATE? WE'D STILL LIKE YOUR HELP...
In addition to financial funding, if you feel you have any relevant knowledge or means relating to our project, or just want to ask us more questions, we would love to hear from you via firstname.lastname@example.org
Whether you can donate or not, it would be great if you could please help us spread the word by clicking the 'I want to help' button above to help share our project.
OUR PLEDGE TO YOU...
As our team knowledge increases and develops each season, it is the continued support we get from our donors which allows us to improve our performance year on year. We would be extremely grateful for any donations. As an extra to the rewards that we have offered, if you are ever in Huddersfield then please feel free to contact us and we will try to arrange a tour of our facilities and a chance for you to meet some of the team members.
Thank you for your support!
