Welcome to the Formula-MET Society! We are a diverse group of students dedicated to pushing the boundaries of engineering, design, and teamwork. 

In our inclusive community, collaboration is at our core. Members work together as a cohesive unit, combining their skills in engineering, business, marketing, and more to succeed in various Formula-style competitions. Whether you're a programmer or a business student, there are opportunities for everyone to contribute to the team's success. We believe in the power of collaboration and encourage students to explore various aspects of the racing car development process.

With a large following of motorsports within Cardiff Met, we aim to bring together those with a shared interest and those new to the sport. Our goal is to introduce students to the exciting world of motorsports and demonstrate how their academic skills can be applied within the industry.

Our aims:

  • Demonstrate how various skills can be applied in motorsports
  • Our society not only focuses on the design and building of high-performance racing cars but also addresses contemporary challenges within the motorsports industry. We actively engage in discussions about sustainability issues and climate threats, seeking innovative solutions to these problems.
  • Build a community of like-minded individuals.

As a society, we organise a variety of events throughout the year, blending practical and theoretical elements. These events include go-kart races, F1 watch along (with Max Verstappen probably winning), and nights out, fostering a sense of community and camaraderie among our members. Additionally, we integrate hands-on activities, such as designing and programming autonomous vehicles using robotic car kits, to provide a well-rounded experience.

Our ultimate aim is to design, program, fabricate, and build a full-scale AI car to enter the Formula Student competition at Silverstone. This ambitious project serves as a testament to our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible within the realm of motorsports.

Whether you're a motorsports enthusiast or someone looking to explore the intersection of academic skills and practical application, our society offers an exciting and inclusive space for all. Join us as we rev up our engines and drive towards innovation and success in the thrilling world of Formula-style racing cars.

Memberships cost £5 for the academic year.
