We are one of the oldest and most established Formula Student teams in the United Kingdom

UBRacing are the Formula Student team from the University of Birmingham.

As one of the oldest UK Formula Student teams and a founding member of the Formula Student UK competition, we are a team rich with history. We have competed all over the world in events such as Michigan, Australia, Czech Republic and Germany.

After competing in FSAE Michigan in 1998, the University’s now-retired Senior Technician, Carl Hingley BEM, alongside Leeds and Hertfordshire Universities, was responsible for bringing the competition as we know it today to the UK.
