Loughborough University’s Formula Student Team Visit Lane Motorsport

17 June 2024

Ahead of the Formula Student UK 2024 competition commencing for this year (on 17th July at Silverstone), Lane Motorsport invited the aspiring young development engineers from Loughborough University’s racing team (LUMotorsport) to its Slinfold Lodge production site, in the heart of Sussex.

This gave them an opportunity to learn some valuable lessons about automotive system design and implementation. Lane Motorsport will be sponsoring the team for the 3rd year in a row. It will also be helping team members by providing expert technical advice, along with component recommendations. Key elements of the LUMotorsport race car competing in this year’s contest include a T45 tubular steel and carbon composite spaceframe chassis, a 5.7kWh accumulator and a 124kW EMRAX 228 motor.

As Nick Wheeler, Director of Lane Motorsport, notes; “We have been supporting LUMotorsport with their design efforts for a number of years and it was gratifying to meet the 2024 team and show them where the magic happens. Lane Electronics is a family run electrical connector VAD distributor established for nearly 60 years and it is part of our ethos to support both our local community as well as the next generation of home-grown engineers. Sharing our expertise with the universities competing in FSUK provides the race teams with support while providing us with insights as to the future of motorsport.”
