IIDEA Manufacture Components for Hallam University Racing Team
Updated: Dec 3, 2019
IIDEA were approached by Sheffield Hallam University Student Racing Team (SHU Racing) to manufacture some wheel hubs for their entry vehicle to the 2016 Formula Student Race event at very short notice. Formula Student is an annual event that currently takes place at the Silverstone Race Circuit in the week immediately following the British Grand Prix weekend. As a number of members of the IIDEA team past and present are ex-Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) graduates we were thrilled to be asked to take part in such a project! The hubs were manufactured to a design produced by the students from EN24T grade low alloy steel as this offers a good range of properties for the hubs.
Further information on the manufacture of the hubs for the 2016 SHU Racing Formula Student Project car please follow this link to the SHU Racing wheel hubs projects page and to learn more about some of the other projects we have been involved in (at least the ones we are allowed to discuss!) please follow the link to the IIDEA projects page.
