Formula Student Build Fund 2024 - Winners Announced

Meet the Winners Banner


We are delighted to announce the 30 winning teams for the 2024 Build Fund!




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

The Build Fund application 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.

We had a whopping 78 entries from 21 different countries and we were soo impressed by the standard of applications!  The 30 lucky winners of the Build Fund will be provided with GBP 1000 worth of RS products, and you will be hearing more from the teams over the coming months as they share their stories on DesignSpark.
