Supporting Melbourne University Racing

Swe-Check is proud supporter of the Melbourne University Racing team. Every year Melbourne University Racing brings together a diverse cohort of students to design, build and race an electric race car (from scratch) to compete in the world Formula SAE race car project. Formula SAE started in the United States of America in 1979 and the competition was extended to include Australasia in 2000. The Melbourne University Racing team have competed every year since then.

This year we are working with the team to identify key areas of their power distribution and circuit protection that could benefit from using our range of state of the art electronic, automotive and electrical products. To date, we have supplied the team with battery switches, cartridge fuses and fuse holders.

What is the Formula SAE Competition?

Formula SAE is the world’s largest student engineering design competition whereby university students design, manufacture, test and compete with a single seat racecar. This highly prestigious engineering competition has seen innovative and award winning designs from universities and colleges across the globe. Each team will get to see how well their cars stack up against their peers and is judged in a number of events, which are separated into two types – static and dynamic. Static events consist of Design, Cost, as well a Business Presentation. Dynamic events consist of Acceleration, Skidpad, Autocross, Fuel Economy and Endurance. In these events, teams may directly compare their designs on track, where each team has the opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of their vehicles.
