Team Primus, a student engineering team composed of 28 members from varying disciplines at Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology (AUST), has won two categories at this year’s edition of the Formula Student UK (FSUK), a motorsport competition for engineering students worldwide, held at the UK’s Silverstone Formula 1 circuit.
With a car powered by a 600 cc motorbike engine developing 84 HP at 11,500 RPM and 40 lb-ft torque at 10,500 RPM, and a curb weight of approximately 300 kg, Team Primus faced multiple challenges in sourcing parts and funding the project. They won Race Tech’s Spirit of Formula Student 2019 category for displaying tenacity and creativity in the face of such hardships. For their technical ability at designing and building the car, they also won the Allan Stainforth Award for Best Newcomer 2019.
More exciting projects coming out of AUST soon!
