Back to Work
Welcome back to a new season at SHU Racing! This year may look a little different for the team from when you last heard from us, but we have big plans and intend to make good on them if possible! Keep a watch out for our weekly newsletters to keep up to date with all the latest at SHU Racing
Unfortunately, the 2020 season came to a sudden halt in March with the closure of the buildings at Sheffield Hallam University and the lockdown that followed. This meant that the 2020 car was never finished and could never show how fantastic it would have been at Silverstone in July. Shown below are images of the car that the 2020 managers and their team designed, and which we hoped would have been our most successful to date. The 2021 car will be developing on from the work carried out during the 2020 season and we look forward to seeing her out on track.
We would like to thank the Sponsors and Technical Staff at the University for all the support they provided throughout the season and look forward to beginning to work with you all again over the coming months.
We would also like to take the opportunity to thank all the managers for their hard work throughout last year. We hope that we can do them proud this year and maybe see them at Formula Student UK next summer! Finally, we would also like to congratulate them all on achieving fantastic final degree classifications!

Recruitment for the new team
September is the time when we begin to look for new team members to join SHU Racing and if you have an interest in cars and are a student at Sheffield Hallam, SHU Racing and Formula Student may be something you wish to be involved with!
Ordinarily fresher’s week would be filled with opportunities for students to ask about joining the team at the societies and sports fairs, as well as us coming in to talk to first year students about what they may gain from joining Formula Student. This year, the process will be done a little differently. To join us at our virtual meet the team event, please book your tickets through the following link; https://www.hallamstudentsunion.com/organisation/7640/
Alternatively, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about the team. We at SHU Racing are proud of welcoming individuals from all academic backgrounds and believe anyone with enthusiasm, focus and the ability to be a team player can be a part of SHU Racing. We look forward to welcoming our new members to the team over the coming weeks!

Reasons for Joining SHU Racing: When I started at Sheffield Hallam, I had spent very little hands on experience when it came to cars despite my degree and thought this was something I should seek out. By joining SHU Racing, I have had the chance to learn and make mistakes without the pressure of my work being graded. I have made friends with similar interests, gained a better understanding of my degree both through design and manufacture and know more what I want to do for work when I graduate. I am looking forward to seeing what this year holds!
