USM15

Season 2014/2015

With USM having achieved huge success in 2014, Formula Student was now governed by new aerodynamics rules, hence forced major changes to be made to maximise the performance of USM15. Fueled by the title of top UK team, USM15 was a very competive car, attracting the attention of major sponsors such as Castrol.
