The team, made up of mechanical engineering students, revealed their new car at a ceremony at the university, ahead of competing at the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Formula Student event, which saw more than 100 universities enter worldwide.

Will Earp, team manager, said: “All the students on the team are volunteers, balancing their studies with the commitment to the design and building of the car - 90 per cent of which is done in-house at Hallam.

“As a team we strongly believe in involving people with a range of perspectives, points of view and skills, as this creates a successful working environment.”
