We are UCDFS, University College Dublin’s Formula Student team. This student-led team is building an electric single-seater car to compete in Formula Student UK at the iconic Silverstone Circuit.
Formula Student is the world’s largest and most prestigious engineering competition. Organised and run by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, (iMechE), the competition attracts teams from all over the world to compete with a single-seater Formula-style car.
Our aim is to catapult Irish engineering back onto the international stage and show that electric racing is truly the future. Combustion vehicles have had their day, and with Ireland lagging behind in the worldwide switch to low-emission vehicles, our mission is more relevant today than ever.
