The Formula Student committee will review each team’s Design Concept Specification (DCS) and registration form, and then select teams based on the content of teams’ DCSs. Any remaining teams will be placed on the Reserve List. (Please note the reserve list does not guarantee a place at the competition.)

Entries must comply with the FS rules where second year cars are prohibited and only one car per university will be allowed. However, the organisers reserve the right to allow universities to compete with a second car where this second car has novel or interesting technology incorporated and is sufficiently different to other entries.

Note: The Institution of Mechanical Engineers takes a view that the automotive industry will have to be open to many technologies in the future and this policy supports that view.

The committee reserves the right to modify the number of entries accepted and their decision is final.

Applications that contain any of the below criteria will be favoured:

  • UK teams
  • Top 10 finishers at previous competition
  • Alternative fuelled cars and interesting technology
  • Representation from as many countries as possible
