SURacing have been doing their bit to raise awareness for anti-bullying week, but not just that - they have been showing us what it means to be part of SUR!


Staffs Uni Racing are on a mission to raise awareness for anti-bullying by coming to their sessions in odd socks.

The idea was formed to show uniqueness, individuality, and inclusion. They got involved in this movement as the team pride themselves on inclusion and sense of belonging regardless of disability, race, culture etc. with the team ethic being “We race as one”.







When working on their projects, we're told that it requires 'blood, sweat and tears' to make this happen.  As a family they help one another and when times get tough, they band together as a team to make it happen.  The projects can require late hours and dedication but this helps the group to come together to form their racing family.

This is what a Staffs Uni family looks like!

Love to see it!!

This team is made up of 36 people who all have a role to play which is great. No one is left out and everyone gets the opportunity to get involved. Everyone in this team is from different schools, different courses, and has different levels of experience which goes to show that everyone and anyone can join.

The SU Racing Team is supported by Martin (workshop tech specialist) who doesn’t just support them in the projects but supports the students in their growth as a student learn new skills. Martin is seen by the students as ‘FS Dad’ (formula student dad) and is exceptionally proud of the students and their acheivements.
