Turning on the charm is one of the vital soft skills Formula Team leaders need to drum up sponsorship. So when Sussex Racing dropped us a line proclaiming ‘as a result of your support we were able to run the coolest car for several years’, we were sold on supporting them again in 2017.
Describing themselves as: ‘a team of 13 interdisciplinary engineers, by no means the largest team competing in Formula Student, but due to our continued sponsor support, we have consistently finished in the top 10 UK teams across previous years. Last year we achieved our best finish in any single event, 1st in the world for the competition’s business presentation scenario, a position we intend to retain come Silverstone 2017!’
SPAL is more than happy to help the team’s stated aim to ‘achieve higher than our predecessors’.
