Academic staff and MSc students in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences at Oxford Brookes University have been developing an electric racing car in collaboration with Dallara Automobile, project chaired by Head of R&D and US Racing Business Leader, Andrea Toso.
To provide an overview of the project & showcase excellent work of our students from all over the world (and hopefully capture your imagination to get involved!) here is the abridged version of our #DallaraBrookesStoryBook, first exhibited at Autosport International Show 2015.

  1. 1. [electric vehicle development project] FORMULA CLUB-E
  2. 2. “I love Formula One, dearly. If I live for 100 years I will still love Formula One. But the world is going in the direction of electric, we don't know how long it will take but we have to make a change. It's not that we want to, it's almost mandatory. If we continue like this for 100 years there will be no planet so basically there is no option.” Alejandro Agag, Formula E founder and CEO 2Donotcut “A goal of all formal education should be to graduate students to lead lives of consequence.” John Henry Brookes, Spiritual founder of Oxford Brookes University Brookes alumni in employment at major Formula 1 teams in collaboration with
  3. 3. THE VISION At the very pinnacle of the Motorsport world, Formula E is currently leading the way for the electric racing market. At the low budget end, Formula SAE electric has demonstrated that electric vehicles can dominate over their combustion-engined counterparts. Currently, there are very few affordable electric racing cars, so there is a clear gap in the market. ? Formula SAE Electric Formula E   in collaboration with Year 1 - Concept: Feasibility study & concept design Year 2 - Analyse: Identify market opportunities & design specification, design & virtually prototype vehicle Year 3 - Develop: Establish partnerships, detailed simulation modelling, final design, prototyping & model validation Year 4 - Refine: Build, test & finalise complete prototype vehicle
  4. 4. THE PLAYERS Andrea Toso, Head of R&D and US Racing Business Leader at Dallara Automobili shares design ideas with OBU students 4Donotcut Dallara Automobili Competing in all F3 championships around the world, Dallara is the sole supplier of cars to the IndyCar, Indy Lights, GP2, GP3, World Series by Renault and Japanese Super Formula championships. Coupled with their experience of supplying the chassis for Formula E, Dallara’s impressive motorsport pedigree ideally places them to deliver an electric racing vehicle. Mechanical Engineering & Mathematical sciences Nestled in the heart of Motorsport Valley, 92% of our graduates go on to employment - many in F1, Formula E and major suppliers to the motorsport industry. Oxford Brookes has an enviable reputation as the number one institution for Motorsport education, training the Automotive, Motorsport and Mechanical Engineers of the future. Business School The Business School provides strength in corporate, competitive & growth strategy, global business, international trade and foreign direct investment with subjects that focus on leadership, culture, motivation, practices, strategic human resource management and the management of the globalisation process. This allows us to consider both the mechanical and business aspects. Unparalleled Team Bringing together one of the World’s largest race car manufacturers, and the leading motorsport education provider, the Formula Club-E project is the work of an unparalleled team. in collaboration with
