USM20

Season 2019/2020

USM19 was the first car that the team achieved a sub 170kg car with wings. The car weighing in at an impressive 169.5kg. A new aerodynamic package achieved greater down-force while being able to reduce drag and weight through the use of a swan neck mounting solution. The team took every component into consideration with the goal of making each part lighter in order to meet our design philosophy of a lightweight racecar.

 

Along with a lighter car the team managed to achieve over 200Km of testing with the new design helping to improve drivability and reliability issues, that had caused problems in the past.
