Newbury Innovation has agreed to become a Gold level sponsor for this year’s Team Bath Racing Electric (TBRe) team.
Team Bath Racing Electric (TBRe) is a student motorsport team based at the University of Bath. Each year, TBRe designs, builds and tests a single-seat, open-wheel race car made with a fully electric powertrain to compete on an international stage at Silverstone at the renowned Formula Student competition.
The agreement given by Newbury Innovation gives the student engineering team access to all the PCBs they may require as well as an open door to Newbury’s design facilities.
Jon Hawkins, Technical Director of Newbury Innovation expressed his delight with the new collaboration. He said:
“Being involved with TBRe brings undoubted benefits for both us and the student team. Supporting their personal development whilst watching them encounter and overcome real engineering challenges, through the course of the programme, is very rewarding.”
Jon is also delivering a series of guest lectures to the team, the first of which will be looking at electrical and mechanical interfaces and takes place in early November.
Afkar Ansar, Business Manager, Team Bath Racing Electric is “delighted that we have been able to secure the support of Jon and his team at Newbury Innovation. Having a relationship with industry not only helps us with the challenges we face developing and building the electric racing car, but it is also incredibly valuable to us in preparing us for our future careers.”
