This week on meet the team Tuesday: What's Fabian got in common with Kirsty and Phil? It's all about Location, Location, Location! Working on our GPS and accelerometer logging system we'd be lost without him. Despite often doing trial runs out on his bike we always know where we stand with Fabian. When not working on this, yaw most likely to see him pitching a stand as he's rolled into another event as our head of industrial partnerships. #meettheteamteusday #formulastudent #fsuk #newcastle #car #racing #racecar #gps #accelerometer #electronics #liason #datalogging

A big thank you to Michael Rhodes and Lamplas for their continued support. They've been on board since our first car NR1 back in 2004 and we are excited to continue working with you in the future. #formulastudent #fsuk #lamplas #composites #carbonfibre #polymers #cars #racing

There's a right bunch of mugs in the bay this morning. Working on the car is really thirsty work, so we've had a delivery of personalised mugs, complete with home county flags. #bunchofmugs #thirstywork #countyflags #fromfarandwide #formulastudent #builtnotbought #electricracecar #becauseracecar #morningcuppa #brewednotbought

This week on meet the team Tuesday: Before Chris Iddon joined our team this summer, the fastest he’s been was when he’d r-iddon his bike. As such he’s forb-iddon to drive the car until he’s fully unlocked the h-iddon secrets of our suspension system, so we don’t go sk-iddon off the track. By Chris-tmas, he aims to have the car’s handling Chris-p allowing him to move onto weight reduction. By the end of the year he aims to have helped produce a Chris-tal clear business case for us to present as part of our Class 2 entry at Silverstone. #meettheteamteusday #formulastudent #fsuk #newcastle #car #racing #racecar #steering #wheelpackage #suspension #carbonfibre #wishbones #shocks #brakes #team #wheel #tyre #electriccar #camber #vehicledynamics

This week on meet the team Tuesday: Former musician Jamie joined our team this year, with prior experience in modelling (and not the kind you’d normally associate with an engineer), he was keen to Mount this portrait of himself on the bay wall. Having worked for Williams F1 over summer, although he’s only mentioned it a couple (of hundred) times, he’s keen to up the tempo with his 4th year project on the use of carbon fibre in suspension members. Weave noticed he’s so keen to get involved with the team, he’s even went right to bass-ics and had his luscious locks cut in order to squeeze a helmet on for testing. #meettheteamteusday #formulastudent #fsuk #newcastle #car #racing #racecar #steering #wheelpackage #suspension #carbonfibre #wishbones #shocks #brakes #team #wheel #tyre #electriccar #camber

Quickgrind are one of our key industrial partners, and have helped us immensely over the last year. In conjunction with @mtdcnc , they produced a couple of videos, featuring interviews with Newcastle Racing team members both here at our bay, and at the event at Silverstone.

Yesterday recruitment to Newcastle Racing began with a presentation and talk for the current 3rd year students at Newcastle University. We were so pleased to have such a great turn out and can't wait to get you all involved in the team! #engineering #mechanical #mechanicalengineering #newcastleuni #electrical #formulastudent #cars #jobs #recruitment #presentation #electricracecar #fsuk

Today saw Dr Jack Hale retire from Newcastle Racing, having supported us since 2001. As a parting gift, we've gifted him this bespoke commemorative steering wheel. While we're sad to see him go, we wish him all the best in his well deserved retirement. Without Jack, Newcastle Racing would not be in the strong position we are today. #formulastudent #fsuk #alegendretires #itwillnotbethesamewithouthim #oneofone #bespoke #leavinggift

This week on meet the team Tuesday: Sam spent last year working on a new chassis design to try and cut some weight from the car, but also provide more room behind the wheel to ensure he could squeeze his slightly larger than average frame into the car. However, having almost binned his own car at last years event following an altercation with a grassy bank, this may have been partially in vain, as the team are now sceptical about letting him drive the FS car. Oh well, at least he'll have plenty of time to develop our High Voltage system to ensure we stay at the forefront of electric racing. #fsuk #MeetTheTeamTuesday #racecar #highvoltage #formulastudent #binnedit #chassis #mecheng #design

With us all returning back to university next week (not that we ever stopped working on Formula Student), we thought now would be a good time to introduce you all to our revamped bay! By rearranging the cupboards and equipment, we now have more room to work on the car. We've also brightened up the area with the addition of some new posters. But most importantly, we now have room for our technician, Steve, to move his office into the bay. This will allow us to make better use of his expert knowledge at a moments notice. #formulastudent #fsuk #workshop #racecar #newoffice #ncl

This week on meet the team Tuesday: Cait spent last year working on a new wheel package, despite working on one of the most complex parts of the car, not once did she fatigue, lose her bearings, or let working on the braking system slow her down. However, working on the wheel package just wasn't enough for Cait, she just kept asking for Moore and Moore to do. As such, she now looks after our social media accounts and is one of our sponsor liasons. #meettheteamteusday #formulastudent #fsuk #newcastle #car #racing #racecar #steering #wheelpackage #upright #hub #bearings #brakes #team #wheel #tyre #electriccar #camber #suspension #womeninengoneering

This week on meet the team Tuesday: While Danny is a canny fella we really thought he was going round the bend when he showed us his steering system. Luckily, with the promise of a stache of biscuits, we’ve got him heading in the right direction, and over time we realised he's really turned a corner and kept us on the straight and narrow. #meettheteamteusday #formulastudent #fsuk #car #racing #racecar #steering #steeringwheel #electriccar #camber #steeringrack

This week on meet the team tuesday: Last year saw Stephen spring into action to work on the car’s suspension, however, the amount of work he faced threatened to put a real damper on things, and posed a real shock to the system. But once he’d got his toe-in, he didn’t let this castor shadow on proceedings, leaving the camber as the only negative thing about his project. When not working on the car, he’s the team’s chief photographer, and as you can see from this photo, he's clearly happier one side of the camera than the other. #MeetTheTeamTuesday #formulastudent #fsuk #racecar #racecarsuspension #punnypost #mecheng #springsanddampers #stem #becauseracecar

This week on meet the team Tuesday: Like most NR members, Sam is unsurprisingly an F1 nut. With his amazing organisational skills, it’s a wonder the team Gantt chart hasn’t been renamed the Grant chart. He granted us with his engineering skills last year, and has since done a wheely good job researching alternate materials for our hubs and uprights. This year he's working on our chassis and is hungry to find a new sandwich panel material to cut those all important kilos from the car. #MeettheTeamTuesday #electrical #formulastudent #fsuk #team #car #racing #wheels #wheelpackage #upright #hub #inhubmotors #titanium #chassis #materials

This week on meet the team Tuesday: Despite finding charging them a re-volting process, Nick did an ex-cell-ent job on the batteries last year, and is a real positive influence on the team. With that all done, he's now got his ion the motor system, which along with current events, gives him some great torquing points at parties. #MeettheTeamTuesday #electrical #formulastudent #fsuk #team #car #racing #electric #electriccar #batteries #voltage #pun #motor

This week on meet the team Tuesday: Rather like Clark Kent, Cameron's unassuming looks defy the superhero lurking beneath. Following the downpours at this year’s event, he’s just about Thor-ed out. But when it comes to electrical systems he’s no Joker, and all we can do is Marvel at his data logging skills, as he works with the Bane of his life, our DC systems. #MeettheTeamTuesday #DC #electrical #formulastudent #fsuk #team #car #racing #electric #electriccar #marvel #pun #datalogger #newcastle #newcastleuni
