Formula Student Build Fund 2023 - Winners Announced

We are delighted to announce the 30 winning teams for the 2023 Build Fund!



RS Grass Roots are proud sponsors of the IMechE Formula Student Competition, and we created The Build Fund to support teams with hands-on technical learning as they bring their designs to life.

The Build Fund allows the teams to evaluate their team objectives, areas of improvement in regard to technical skills, and how the fund will impact their competition entry. The entries showcased some very interesting ambitions and direction for developing more sustainable solutions with most teams pushing to electrify their cars.

The 30 lucky winners of the Build Fund will be provided with £ 1000 GBP worth of RS products, and you will be hearing more from the teams over the coming months as they share their stories on DesignSpark.
