And now, we turn our attention to building the future of Motorsport…

Founded in 1999, OBR has developed and grown into one of Europe’s elite Formula Student teams, collecting seven UK Top Team awards; more than any other University. We have broken records, broken barriers, and fuelled the engineers and leaders of the next generation – whilst consistently building an elite open-wheel racing car.

It is our mission to develop versatile graduates able to excel in a high perfomance team. No matter what you’re studying or in which year you’re in, OBR has consistently nurtured and developed high quality talent, evidenced by the fact that every Formula 1 team employs at least one OBR alumni.
