Greenpower Project with the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT)

08 Nov 2018

To further expand members’ experiences, at the Club, we collaborate with local businesses. We ran an eight week Greenpower Project with the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) this summer, having also participated in the project in 2017.

SMMT engineers taught six members about engineering and technology by designing their own kit electric car. This year the focus was on how to make the body work more aerodynamic. Thursday evenings at the Club were spent hard at work looking at bodywork design and building the car.

In September, members raced their car at Dunsfold Park, the Top Gear track. Adrian, Deputy Club Manager said, "months of hard work building and leaning new techniques to help us get round the track was all worth the effort. A massive thank you to all the team at SMMT who have supported and funded this amazing project."
