The beginning of April saw the tubes for the chassis delivered to MDA Motorsport who will be fabricating our frame this year. Matthew at MDA has extensive experience building Formula Student frames and has been making fantastic progress so far. Having worked with Liverpool University for a number of years, he was excited to take on a job for another team, and we can’t thank him enough for his assistance so far! We look forward to keeping you posted on the progress as it nears its completion, and hopefully we will have it back at the University for full assembly in the not so distant future.
Meanwhile, the manufacturing for various other components is underway. Thomas Brown are currently completing a number of jobs for the Team including uprights, hubs and inserts, and we hope these will return when the chassis is powder coated. Our race engine has also been rebuilt thanks to Ross and Ainsley, this is great news and we hope to have it on the Dynometer as soon as it is available in order to create various event maps.
As well as the manufacturing being carried out by the Team, there is plenty to do in terms of paperwork; with various deadlines looming the Team are working full steam ahead to submit everything to all three events. These have included both the impact attenuator data and structural equivalency spreadsheets as well as the essential information and design spec sheets. Still to go is the Design Report used in static events as well as the Cost Report which is also a fairly extensive task. The static events are traditionally where the Team has scored very well, once again we are confident of some more high scores come the summer.
French Exchange
The Team would also like to extend a huge welcome to our French exchange students who have joined the Team for the next 11 weeks. Studying engineering back home in France, they are visiting as part of their course and will be helping the Team with a variety of different tasks. This includes an aerodynamics project on the floor of the FSV as well as projects involved with the pedal boz and bodywork.

“They have taken to it straight away and we as a Team have been very impressed with the work they have produced so far. It's exciting to see what they come up with!” said Team Leader Tom. 
More Testing!
With the last outing being such a big success the Team decided to make the most of the Easter break and head up again to Crossland Moor for another shakedown. Driver experience was the theme of the day and Ayzd was to get behind the wheel for his first go in a Formula Student Car. “Izzy”, as he is affectionately known within the Team was initially quite tentative, however he soon managed to take to the car and put in some quick loops round the airfield.
As well as kindly donating a whole heap of their fantastic products, Thorite also offered a place on their “Foundation in Pneumatics” course for a member of the Team. Ross Bingham from Powertrain took the opportunity and said that he had “gained a great deal of knowledge on the basics of pneumatics systems, which will without doubt will be essential when dealing with our cars system set-up.”
