Thanks to Arpex for machining our set of uprights on such short notice! They came out beautifully with high precision and quality. Check out Arpex as well as the other 6 companies that form Canimex Group here. Canimex group is a global leader in manufacturing and should be the first stop for anyone looking for help with their projects from design to delivery!
As a team, we have always been proud to tell our story and share our successes with the McGill Community. We are proud to announce that McGill has featured us in their most recent McGill Commitment video, highlighting the hard-work and recent accolades of the team.
We will continue to serve our community by providing our students with hands-on, project-oriented experience to complement their academic studies. We will continue our dedication to technical excellence, knowledge transfer, and a quality end-product.

A big thank you to President Titanium for their generous donation of titanium stock. The team uses titanium for several parts that need strength without compromising weight. Without President Titanium’s support these parts would be impossible to manufacture. Thanks again President Titanium!
Thank you to Bombardier for continuing to support our team for the 2016 season. They have generously provided the stock material for all our machined parts! Thanks again to Bombardier and we look forward to continue working together in the future!
MRT would like to thank Carpenter for providing us with AerMet® for our driveshafts. AerMet® provides high hardness and strength combined with exceptional ductility and toughness. This translates to considerable weight savings without any loss of performance. Thanks again to Carpenter – engineered materials for a changing world!
The McGill Racing Team would like to thank Axis for helping us print various 3D parts – such as the dash and certain powertrain components. Their high quality parts are great for complex but still lightweight designs. Thanks again to Axis!
Yesterday one of our very own MRT alumni, Ryan Johnson helped Tequila Patron ESM win the Rolex 24 at Daytona!! Ryan was a driver and designer on the McGill Racing Team from 2008-2014 and now works as a Data Engineer for ESM Racing. Congratulations to Ryan and the team for their big win in car no. 2 at Daytona!
Thank you to CPS Industries for their generosity in donating both the material AND the matching required for to manufacture several sets of spindles and stubshafts. The parts we receive from CPS always demonstrate outstanding workmanship and quality! Thank you CPS!
Thank you to Power Gundrilling Inc (PGI) for gun drilling our AerMet driveshafts. MRT is always happy with the high precision and quality that PGI provides. Thanks again PGI!
This summer at Formula Student Germany, our team had the chance to meet one of the editors from ATZ – a German magazine all about technical excellence in the automotive industry. This lead to three of our members getting the opportunity to be published! Check our their article about the struggles and success of fabricating MRT’s first ever monocoque chassis (don’t worry, it is also translated into English):
