We are extremely pleased to announce that Quality Precision Electronics (QPE) Ltd are now an official Gold-tier sponsor of Team Bath Racing Electric (TBRE), the UK’s top electric Formula Student team based at the University of Bath.
Founded in 2015, Team Bath Racing Electric is an electric Formula Student team based out of the University of Bath’s Faculty of Engineering and Design. Formula Student is the world’s largest student engineering competition, with over 600 universities taking part worldwide. Each year, the teams are challenged to design, manufacture, test and race a formula style racing car.
The team’s rapid rise to success has been driven by a desire to innovate and to broaden their technical and business competencies. There is an emphasis within the team to produce custom, in-house designs to ensure that the car is optimised for the Formula Student competition and racing conditions. This philosophy provides a platform for both learning and innovation and allows the team and its members to develop year on year. Unlike many competitors, TBRE utilises a fully electric powertrain with an Emrax 228 motor rear wheel drive and a custom in-house designed and built battery pack.
QPE are dedicated to innovation and this sponsorship epitomises the investment that QPE strive to make to the industry. The TBRE team consists of over 50 professional, motivated and committed students from across the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering departments, as well as Management and Computer Science. Supporting this team enables QPE to endorse the next generation of Engineers and support the future of our industry.
“At QPE, we work on projects across multiple industries including Oil and Gas, Defence and Security, Life Sciences, Communication and Transport. Our focus within Transport is electric vehicles including electric cars. We felt that our focus on growth in this sector would match perfectly, and be mutually beneficial, with supporting an organisation such as Team Bath Racing Electric. We’re really looking forward to working with the team,” commented Russell Dillon, Managing Director at QPE.
“We are delighted to announce our newest Gold Sponsor: Quality Precision Electronics. Thanks to them for their invaluable contribution of electronics for our cars, we can't wait to put their services to good use with our bespoke electronics and look forward to working with them,” commented the TBRE team.
QPE joins fellow sponsors Bosch, Caterpillar, Solvay, Makita and others, in supporting Team Bath Racing Electric and their future endeavours.
