3M BIC sponsors University Formula Student 2022 team

Share This Post

Since 2013 we have been sponsoring the University of Huddersfield’s Formula Student competition entry Team HARE.

Team HARE (Huddersfield Automotive Racing Enterprises) is the University of Huddersfield’s student racing team for Europe’s most established motorsport competition, the Formula Student (FSAE), created by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) to influence new generations of engineers. The contest encourages Universities from across the globe to design and build a single-seat racing car to compete in events at Silverstone in the UK, and other countries including Germany, Hungary, and Spain.

Each year, a new team of engineers designs and builds a car to compete in the Formula Student event where the overall winner out of around 100 universities across the globe is revealed. The current Team HARE participated in the Formula Student 2022 event on 6th – 10th July at Silverstone. Each team had to undertake static and dynamic events to test their preparation for the race and efficiency of the cars. Team HARE-22 passed all its scrutineering events over the weekend.

3M BIC was once again one of Team HARE’s sponsors providing 3D printed polymer parts to enhance the car design ready for the 2022 season. Our design team 3D printed the plenum, or airbox, on our EOS machine and then sprayed it to look like metal. Team HARE was able to fasten the injectors to the plenum and mount the fuel rail. This interface was achieved purely through the 3D print without any post processing.

Team HARE usually consists of a large group of 4th and 5th year students, predominantly studying Engineering (Mechanical, Automotive, Motorsport & Electrical) at the University of Huddersfield. However, it’s a whole team effort drafting in students from other courses to support marketing, graphic design and finance.

Team HARE has been entering the FSAE since 1999 and prides itself as being one of the UK’s most established and professional teams.
