USM 14

Following from the major concept change in 2013 the team wanted to go a step further by adding an aerodynamic package to the car. The finalised wing design saw the addition of a three element front wing and a dual element rear wing and was an extremely fast car after a very lengthy testing season.

At competition, the car performed very well achieving a top ten finish in the skid pad event at FSUK also taking the cost and sustainability title for the second time in a row. However, an engine failure ended the car's competition in the endurance event.

However, the team worked tirelessly to prepare for FSG 2014 bringing the car back home as the top team in the UK 2014.
