We have found some more “horsepower” this year and this should make the car more competitive on the track

Brunel Racing thanks DYMO for their support

Brunel Racing has been working with DYMO products for the last two years. Last year the team extensively used Rhino 6000 professional label printer in wiring loom manufacturing. It proved to be a huge asset when it came to identifying a large number of cables in the electrical system. 

This year we are sponsored by labeling accessories which will help to ensure that our electrical system is neat and built to high standards. Brunel Racing would like to thank DYMO for their continuous support.

Amber Composites; recently acquired by TenCate Advanced Composites, is a manufacturer of high performance composite materials, specifically for the automotive industries, ranging from Formula 1 to passenger car OEM’s.
 
Amber Composites and TenCate Advanced Composites have supplied the team with pre-impregnated carbon fibre for the vehicle’s bodywork, along with invaluable technical advice regarding material selection.
 
"We chose to use the TenCate E722 prepreg from Amber Composites based on experience within the team of its’ drape qualities, suitable tack level and good component surface finish" said Brunel Racing team member Gareth Gwilliam.
 
"Using proven high performance materials, from reliable suppliers, allows us to hit our targets in terms of weight, stiffness and lead times. We are delighted with the quality of the composite components we have produced this year. Amber Composites and TenCate Advanced Composites have helped us every step of the way; providing technical advice for co-curing with core and adhesives, along with advice on material selection and timely deliveries."
 
BR-14; Brunel Racing’s 2013 Formula Student car successfully competed at Formula Student (Silverstone) at the start of July, completing all events; including being one of only 21 teams to finish the gruelling endurance event.
