Formula Student Racing. Leeds Uni
Here at Leeds, we design and build our own single seat racing car and use this to compete in the various International Formula Student Events. The Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineering) and Formula Student Race Team are annual competitions based in America and Europe where students design, build, test and race an open wheeled, single seater race car. Typically cars designed at Leeds may do 0-60 mph in just over 3 seconds with the engine revving at close to 14000 rpm!

Middleton Railway
The worlds oldest railway in Leeds.
