The University of Malta Racing (UoMR) team designs, builds, and races a Formula Style racing car in a Formula Student competition every year. Last September (2014) they competed in Parma (Italy)with their first car. Building this car brought together students from five different faculties with engineering knowledge, costing, marketing, and business proposals for the judges. UoMR is run like a small vehicle manufacturing company.The team is currently working on its second car for Parma 2015. Improvements are being made on weight, speed, and design, bringing a faster and better car.
