MCLAREN, Making the most of materials in Formula 1.

In the world of Formula 1 we are constantly striving to beat the competition. Within the confines of the rules and regulations of the sport we have to push the limits of aerodynamic performance, structural efficiency and what we can deliver before the next race.


This talk will cover an overview of how design concepts are delivered to track and how a key part of this is the material selection process.

Not only are we concerned with the strength and density of components and how this affects the size and weight of parts, but time to manufacture becomes a priority and often impacts the design of components and the selection of materials.

Please arrive at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start.

Free parking is available at the college.



Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served prior to the lecture.

The talk is FREE and open to the general public, but prior registration is required.
