Societies Spotlight on... Formula Student Society

That’s right, on 19th July, Queen Mary Formula Student Society are racing at Silverstone, one of the most famous motor racing circuits in the world. They have spent the last few years building their very own race car, and now they finally get to see it in action. Formula Student has been a dedicated and active Queen Mary Society for a many years, and its members have all worked incredibly hard to achieve their ultimate goal. A testament to this, they have secured funding from Queen Mary Students’ Union, Queen Mary University and a whole host of external sponsors including Plush Suspension, Dassault Systems and most recently, Oakley.

QMFS was one of only four Societies to achieve Silver in this year’s Societies Excellence Award and their President, Aqil Hussain, was deservedly mentioned in the Societies Honours List. To top it all off, in recognition of their fantastic contribution to QMSU, Formula Student was nominated for Society of the Year.

Congratulations QMFS. Now make the finishing touches to your car and show them what you’re made of!
