A huge thank you to one of our industrial partners Quickgrind for supplying us with some goodies for the Formula Student event in a couple of weeks. See you at #silverstone 14-15th July 2018 .
We'd like to introduce you to some of the industrial partners who have joined us this year. Help has ranged from financial aid through to the loan of a milling machine and lathe. All of which were gratefully received and are invaluable in aiding us in the design and production of our next car. Why not check out all our partners, new and existing, on our website. The link is in our bio. #industrialpartners
After another successful test day and datalogging session, we'd like to thank @rs_components for their continued support #industrialpartner #datalogging
Sound on! Like a flash NRX thunders round the track like lightning. Data logging ensuring there's no clouds surrounding the decision on every nut and bolt of NR11s design to ensure it's as light and fast as possible #likeaflash
We'd like to wish Adam Richardson all the best in his new job. He's been a great help over the years to Newcastle Racing, helping us with various design and material tests over the years. #goodluck
We'd like to introduce you to one of our latest industrial partners: REACT Engineering. They're a engineering consultancy who operate primarily in the nuclear sector. Without partners like REACT funding us, there's no way we'd be able to hit the track on days like today to get valuable data!
Here at Newcastle Racing, we like a good bit of Carbon Fibre! This week, the chassis team tested a cracking home made CFRP panel for potential use for next years car. Thanks to Gates for allowing us to use their autoclave!

Some of our chassis team braved the snow this week and headed to our long term partner's facility to layup s-glass via hand layup, vacuum bagging and resin infusion. Huge thanks to Lamplas for making this happen! #composites #industrialpartner
Huge thanks to loctite for supplying us with adhesives, tapes and lubricants which we'll be using for development, testing and manufacturing of components for both our current and next car. @henkel #loctite
We're delighted to announce we've once again renewed our partnership with @rs_components. This delivery contained all sorts of goodies ranging from potentiometers for our data logging to new storage systems to keep the workshop tidy and productivity high!
We'd like to introduce you to our latest industrial partner to join the team - coilcraft! Coilcraft design and manufacture inductors, transformers and filters, which we hope to use on our next car, NR11.
This afternoon the chassis team have been expanding aluminium honeycomb to use as a core in fibreglass and carbon fibre sandwich panels. These will then undergo punch tests to assess their suitability for use in NR11's chassis.
There's no "I" in teamwork but there is a "tea"! Starting the new term right with a cup of @yorkshiretea. Now that exams are all out the way we're hitting the ground running with 20 third years joining us to design our next car, NR11, that's a lot of people needing a lot of tea!
A quick look back at 2017 with our #2017bestnine. Thanks for all of your support, we know those numbers will be much bigger this year!
We'd like to wish all of our followers, our industrial partners, and everyone who's helped us out throughout 2017, a HAPPY NEW YEAR! We would also like to welcome you all to join us on our journey into 2018, which we believe will be our best year yet!
Huge thanks to our Industrial Partner MSC Software for providing us with licences for some of their software packages, chief of which is their Multibody Dynamics Simulation Software - Adams. We'll be using it to model our current car NRX, and our next car NR11 to optimise our performance and reduce development time.
From all of us at Newcastle Racing, we'd like to wish all of our followers (over 1000!), all of our industrial partners, and all the other great people who help us do what we do, a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
NRX as you've never seen it before! This is just a short snippet of video from Thursday when team leader Tom took to the track to test the car. The footage captured of our rocker based steering system and air shock suspension will be synchronised with data from various sensors to allow us to better understand the car's dynamics.
