Attached to this blog is a just published newsletter highlighting Loughborough University’s formula student team known as LUMotorsport. Lane Motorsport is a sponsor providing the team with high performance electronic connectors and accessories based around the Souriau 8STA platform which is used throughout all forms of motorsport.
The newsletter, like an earlier blog posted on this site, details how the 2018 season panned out, but of equal interest is some information regarding the plans the LUMotorsport team has for the coming 2019 season.
There are also some details of LUMotorsport’s opportunity to display its car at the Royal Automobile Club in London where the car, known as LFS18, joined some of the most iconic vehicles in the world – from winning Formula 1 cars such as the McLaren M23 driven by James Hunt, to famous vintage cars including the Lagonda M35R.
For the coming season the LU team plan to concentrate on improving the car’s aerodynamics, its fuel efficiency, engine performance and a totally new chassis.
