Thank You Watson Racing!

Thanks to our friends at Watson Racing​ for machining our front bell crank mounts. We were in a bind and Watson Racing came to the rescue! Watson is known for their top quality and these parts are no different. Thanks again to Watson Racing for helping us out!

Making a Monocoque

This month, the Team has been working extremely hard to complete the chassis for MRT17. Members from all subteams stepped up to help out and layup the chassis. Special thanks to our sponsors at Stelia for making this possible! Check out the timelapse of our time at Stelia and demoulding the chassis – almost a month of work condensed to just 2 minutes – HERE!

Loc it tite with Henkel

Thanks to Henkel for providing us with various Loctite products! Without their superior bonding capabilities we would not have been able to put together our two race engines for this upcoming season. We’ll be “sticking” with them 🙂

M1 Composites is #1

Thanks to M1 Composites Technology for helping us make our chassis tools! The team is currently laying up chassis inside the tools as we speak (or as you read). These tools are absolutely integral to our process and without them we wouldn’t have a car. Check out a couple pics from the layout and thanks again to M1!

Gurit Is Great!

Thank you Gurit for supplying us with pre-impregnated carbon fibre. With long work times and no need to mix resin, Gurit’s material makes carbon fibre easy! We use Gurit Carbon Prepreg everywhere on the car – from the chassis to the steering wheel. Thanks to Gurit!

MRT Thanks Huntsman!

A big thank you to Huntsman for providing us with as much renshape as we could ask for! Renshape is super easy to machine and our go-to product for making molds. Check out a video of us machining an aero mount on our router here!
