Metrology Equipment Donation

UWR is the only racing team to compete in the F3 Cup and the AR Morgan Challenge that uses students to design, manufacture, and race in a competitive environment. As a result, students gain valuable engineering industry experience working as a professional team in competitive motorsport.

The metrology equipment donated by Bowers Group will become vital tools for the students involved, giving them a clear head start when it comes to being familiar with the equipment they will use in their future careers.

Vital Part of Student Build

Terry Gibson, Fundraising and Sponsorship Manager for UWR said: “We’re very pleased to welcome Bowers Group as an official sponsor of the University of Wolverhampton Race Team, and it’s great to have them on board.

We’re also delighted with the generous donation they made, that will be a vital part of our formula student build, as well as for the Formula 3 and Morgan Motor Company teams. Thank you Bowers Group for your generous support!”
