MEET THE MANAGERS: BARNEY KIRK - STEERING AND SUSPENSION


Name: Barney Kirk

Role: Steering & Suspension

Course: MEng Aerospace Engineering

Barney Kirk, BK, or Kirky is new to the team for 2018, with his work cut out designing our steering and suspension systems for the 2018 car he has delved into a world of carbon fibre, inserts, complex geometry and a battle with the dark arts of suspension design. He is often found staring into is suspension bible (Solidworks constrained drawing) wondering whether the extra 0.2 degree increase of the wishbone angle will indeed make us corner like a formula one car...Always smiling, Barney loves a good game of cricket, American football and of course a strong black coffee in the morning!
