UOW Motorsport has focused on attending many community events this year and becoming involved with local schools.

They held a display at the Fitted Festival at Sydney Airport and the IICA Technology Expo and spoke at the Engineers Australia launch night. They collaborated with Bulli High, Edmund Rice College and Oxley College, joined forces with the local coordinator of F1 in schools, hosted the local team “Envisity” for a day and attended the final of the local teams and judged the competition. They were involved with “Cars for Hope” which promotes mental health awareness throughout the car community and were part of their stand at the World Time Attack Challenge at Sydney Motorsport Park. UOW Motorsport also attended the 2017 IEEE Brilliant Minds, the Bright Futures event and the Students and Young Professionals Congress.

Through these events, UOW Motorsport sparked interest in their team and the University of Wollongong and were able to create a sense of connection within the Illawarra community.

Congratulations UOW Motorsport!
