FormulaDIT has best year ever at Silverstone event


08 July 2013: After four gruelling days of competition, FormulaDIT has emerged from the Formula Student event at Silverstone, England, with its best year ever.

Out of more than 100 participants, the teams had an overall placement of 21st and only three of the top UK university teams (25 in total) finished above DIT.

The team also accomplished 13th place in the Endurance, 18th in the business and achieved its fastest ever acceleration time of 4.27 seconds.

FormulaDIT is made up of 16 students and staff from the Institution. The students, with the assistance of staff, have spent the past 10 months designing, manufacturing, building and testing their own single-seat racing car.

As well as being an enjoyable experience for students, they got to put into practice skills they’ve learnt in the classroom and also earn marks towards their college courses.
