HWRacing will be at Heriot Watt’s Freshers Fair at the Edinburgh campus on Wednesday 7th September. We’ll be around between 12 and 4pm, with our latest car HWR-06 outside the Union. Members of the team will be around to answer your questions about our latest competition. Feel free to come along and have a chat with us, we’ll never pass up the chance to talk about the car!


After an entire year of planning, design, manufacture, assembling and testing, HWRacing made the journey own to Silverstone on July 14th to compete in the UK Formula Student Competition. Along with 107 other universities, HWRacing competed in both dynamic and static events which all culminated in a final placing based on a points system.

The aim for the team was to complete all dynamic events, in which we succeeded for the first time in the team’s history. The results for the team are the following:

Dynamic Events

Acceleration: 34th
Skid Pad: 47th
Sprint: 49th
Endurance: 26th

Static Events

Cost: 32nd
Design: 72nd
Business Presentation: 88th

Overall Position: 54th

15th in the UK
The fastest Formula Student team in Scotland


Thank You

After the most successful year in Heriot Watt Racing’s history, we must reflect on our entire year as a team and therefore must thank all of our sponsors and backers for their invaluable support over the last year. The support involving materials, expertise and finances from an eclectic mix of companies and manufacturers shows how passionate local and national businesses are about motorsport, especially at Formula Student level.

Their support will see the team build on a fantastic year and progress into a new era of knowledge and experience that will only see the team grow and grow in confidence and ability. So the least we can do as a team is say thank you and we hope that the team’s performance this year will convince you to continue your support of HWRacing into the future.
