Santander Universities UK visit the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences

On 18 February 2015 Thomas Stead, University Relationship Branch manager from Santander Universities UK, visited the department to learn more about the activities of Oxford Brookes Racing.

Santander Universities UK are a strong supporter of the Formula Student competition, which aims to inspire and develop enterprising and innovative engineers. Santander has provided a grant to Oxford Brookes racing, as well as supporting two Formula Santander scholarships for the 2014/15 academic year. During the visit, Stead was given a tour of the Formula Student workshop which is within the Auto Lab.

Iain Allen, Formula Student Team Leader, said ‘I think the visit went well, Thomas seems to be passionate about Motorsport and was impressed with the hard work the team have put in and how we have made use of the Santander grant.’
