REDBACK Racing Team (Formula SAE-A Car)

REDBACK Racing Team (Formula SAE-A Car)

Formula SAE, also known as Formula Student, is an engineering design competition where students from universities across the globe design, manufacture and race small open-wheeler racing cars to compete at Formula SAE events every year.

The competition is the largest motorsport category in the world, with over 500 teams from multiple continents competing to win the multiple Formula SAE events held each year.

The aim of the competition is to allow students to build their practical skills in a competitive environment based on their theoretical knowledge, thus assisting them to become well-rounded graduates.


The core team consists of the technical team, who look after the design and manufacture of our race car each season, and the management team who look after the day-to-day operation of the team. Together, they form the main team who volunteer their time to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the team.
