FormulaDIT receive sponsorship from APi (BorgWarner)


03 December 2013: FormulaDIT has announced that APi (Irl) will be sponsoring the FormulaDIT_14 team.

APi is a global distributor for BorgWarner, a worldwide manufacturer of Turbo & Emissions Systems.

Robert Byrne (APi) recently visited the FormulaDIT team to donate a turbocharger unit to the team captain Stephen Brady. This unit will greatly help the team achieve its goal of redesigning the engine system to reduce emissions, increase performance and improve vehicle sustainability.


FormulaDIT involves final year manufacturing and mechanical engineering students – they get a chance to work on a Formula One car whilst getting course credit.

They then compete, with the support from their lecturers and DIT staff, at the Formula Student event in Silverstone. This year, the FormulaDIT team placed very highly and achieved their best year ever at the competition.

Some previous FormulaDIT participants have gone on to great success post-college – one student is working for Bentley Motors in the UK and one is employed on the Mitsubishi graduate programme in Osaka, Japan!
