The UVic Formula Motorsport Team

The UVic Formula Motorsport team is a university club whose goal is to design and build a new small, open-wheeled, formula-style car each year. The car then competes in Formula SAE, which is the world's largest collegiate design competition.

Our members are highly dedicated and motivated students who seek to get the most out of their university experience. Throughout the year, the team puts thousands of hours into the development of the prototype vehicle, and the members expand their knowledge far beyond what is achieved during a Bachelor's degree alone. Team members gain valuable experience with practical applications of engineering theory, business and relations, hands-on design, and manufacturing.
