As the years go on our car becomes more and more advanced integrating high grade materials to manufacture carbon fibre composite sub-systems such as the monocoque, aero package, suspension and air intake. Sigmatex, the world’s leading independent carbon fibre fabric manufacturer has graciously donated material to the team for many years now and we use their high quality products in most of our composites. Below you can see the base chassis composite mould with an easy composites resin system that is stable at high temperatures using 2X2 Twill carbon fibre reinforcement.

Monocoque Chassis Build

Our chassis mould build is now on its way with the first attempt at the male plug now completed. The team were graciously donated fibreglass from one of our long running and vital sponsors Tygavac who have always helped us out with any and all consumables when it comes to composites manufacturing. The creation of our new chassis moulds will enable the team to make improvements to the manufacture of the monocoque making it lighter, stiffer & easier. We are using ULM012s high density epoxy tolling board moulds that were blocked up and machined at Base Group, another one of our vital sponsors that the team love to visit every year!

National Instruments

National Instruments have continued their support to the University of Liverpool Motorsport Team this year. After previously supplying the hardware and software needed to get the team’s rolling road up and running, their engineer’s support will be invaluable in making this happen. This will be carried out with the use of CompactDAQ equipment and relevant modules required for specific measurement. After the successful completion of this project, the team will be able to carry out accurate dynamic tests prior to competition to effectively improve the overall performance of the car.
