USQ Racing is a team comprised of University of Southern Queensland (USQ) students who will be competing in the annual Formula SAE – Australia (FSAE-A) competition held at Winton Motor Raceway, Victoria. We are in our first year of development and look forward to our first competition on the 8th December 2022. Our team are currently working together to build our very first electric powered formula-style vehicle.

FSAE-A is the Australian leg of the international FSAE competition. This competition challenges students to design, fabricate and assemble formula style vehicles, working in a student led engineering environment to develop the best vehicle permissible using the time and resources available. The team environment assists with developing the students experience in engineering practices, team work, leadership, management, marketing and finance. The Australian competition attracts teams from all over the world, with around 35 teams expected to be attending. In previous years teams have regularly travelled here from UK, Germany, India, Japan, New Zealand and USA.
