2016 Team

About Us

Monash Motorsport is a student-run organisation based at Monash University’s Clayton Campus.

We are a Formula Student team that designs, manufactures, and tests open-wheeled formula-style race cars, to compete in the world’s largest engineering design competition – Formula SAE.

Our team is comprised of undergraduate students from a range of faculties, including engineering, commerce, science and law; that work collaboratively in technical, business and management aspects. The competition itself is divided into dynamic and static events to test students’ abilities with regards to engineering design, component manufacture and business acumen.

Competing since 2000, the team has steadily improved in its performance. The culmination of this work has been seven victories out of the last eight Australian competitions, strong performances in the European competitions and, for a two-year stretch, a ranking of second in the world. This has been a result of a culture of strong fundamental engineering understanding, innovative concept developments and a passion to perform at our highest level.

By participating in Monash Motorsport, students gain invaluable practical skills in their respective fields of both engineering and business, enriching their university experience and equipping them with the knowledge that will allow them to prosper in their chosen career paths.

Our Core Values

To provide an environment where each member can develop their skills and increase their lateral thinking thereby building a solid foundation for their future careers.
To have pride in each other’s work and accept personal responsibility, whilst also responding to tasks with a sense of urgency.
To continuously strive towards the development of a competition-winning team and car.
To share knowledge and work collaboratively towards our common goal, regardless of our role within the team.
