The University’s longstanding relationship with Morson Projects and the wider Morson Group has enabled Salford Racing to secure sponsorship, advice, resources and equipment; support which is set to continue over the next 12 months.

Andy Hassall, Business Development Director, shared:

“As we enter our fifth year supporting the University through their Morson Maker Space and sponsorship of the team, we are pleased to have strengthened our assistance to their racing team through the additional offering of dynamic analysis and composite design training for the students throughout 2022.

“The training will include tailored workshops, mentoring and office visits for their engineering and media teams from experts within the Morson Projects team.”

The Salford Racing team is a multi-disciplinary student society comprising of engineering, business, project management and media students. In a normal year the society has 25-30 members from a broad range of specialisms, providing both engineering knowledge and business expertise.

Together, the students work on designing and manufacturing a race car to compete in the IMechE Formula Student competition, Europe’s most established student automotive event. The team are up against over 100 universities from around the globe, who meet at Silverstone once a year to pit their cars against one another.

Oliver Kanjoo-Parsons, Salford Racing Team Leader shared:

“Salford Racing are excited to announce our strengthened relationship with Morson Projects. With their help and support, we will be able to excel, by developing the skillset and knowledge of our members, which is a key aspect of being within the Salford Racing team.

“As the team enter our 3rd season of competing in the Class 1 division of Formula Student UK, we are excited to apply our focused attitude working with Morson Projects, to achieve our goals.

“Being closely affiliated with one of the world leaders in the engineering network, Morson Projects are an invaluable part to the success of Salford Racing.”
