After the disappointment of not attending Silverstone, the true nature of our team shone through. The character shown over the last few days have proven that Formula Student isn’t just about engineering, it’s also about the memories and bonds created along the way.
We’d like to extend our gratitude to the faculty members at LJMU, our sponsors, and most importantly, our team members for allowing us to continue the development of our very first electric vehicle.
How good does this look? 🤤 A huge thank you to @3m and @apmcustoms for wrapping our body panels #LJMUeRacingTeam #LJMU #FSAE #FSUK #FSUK19

With @f1 racing at Shanghai this weekend, we thought it would be an ideal opportunity for a #throwbackthursday to look at our time back in China. 🇨🇳 Thanks to @ljmuphoto amazing @ljmuglobalopps initiative, six of our Team members were flown out to Shanghai and Changshu to meet with other Formula Student teams for a once in a lifetime experience last summer.
There definitely are perks to being a part of Formula Student; making great friends from the world over is certainly one of the best perks! 😃
Check out the link in our bio for our blog to read about what we got up to in China. 🏎

Our amazing sponsor, @sancstudents Student Accommodation, has a few exciting developments for students studying in Liverpool from September 2019 onwards!
They now offer the minimum of a ¾ bed in all bedrooms across the entire Marybone Student Village. This comes along with a price drop for all rooms at Marybone 1 – now from £80 pounds per week, and a price freeze at both Marybone 2 & 3. They also have accommodation available at the luxurious Grenville Street site! 🤩
Sanctuary Students still offer the usual amazing amenities which are included in your rent; spacious common rooms with pool tables, table tennis, table football, Sky TV, an on-site gym and a cinema room. There is also 24-hour security, two fully staffed reception desks, free contents insurance and super-fast broadband across the site.
It’s so easy to book a room too, with just a £1 payment is needed to secure your room! 💰
We were graciously given rooms to live in over the summer, which helped us achieve such terrific results at FSUK 2018 and continue working in preparation for 2019’s competition. Ellie, our Deputy Team Manager, says “Marybone was clean, spacious and so close to our Byrom Street campus and the city centre. Having all the amazing facilities on offer gave us great opportunities to wind down after a busy day with the Team!” 😍

We're really excited announce our new partnership with Express Circuits Group! They will be supplying all PCB’s used as part of LJMU19e. Express Circuits Group rapid turnaround time, and advanced PCB manufacturing capabilities make them the perfect choice for our very first electric vehicle ⚡️🏎 #IMechE #FSAE #FormulaStudent #LJMU
For our very first electric car, we have designed and analysed our very own motor plates for our YASA 750 motor within @dassaultsystemes @solidworks.
SolidWorks is an amazing design tool as its simple operation results in an efficient design process, and with its seamless integration between part and assembly models, it enables quick design checks and alterations to be made with ease!
SolidWorks Simulation has ensured that the design has been thoroughly analysed to provide the assurances of the part functionality, whilst still all within the same virtual environment. It brings a smile to our faces seeing components of the car going from conceptualisation, right through to the manufacturing stage. 😁
Our Head of Powertain says that “using SolidWorks has given myself and the team full confidence in the design so that these motor plates will be able to endure the demands placed on them in our Class 1 entry at @formulastudent 2019.” 🏎
