The Adelaide University Motorsport Club (AUMC) was formed in December 2014 by the Adelaide University Motorsport Team as a home for the team and to provide a place on campus for all who enjoy motorsport. That is whether you are a supporter, competitor, volunteer or someone who works or wishes to work in the industry – AUMC is the home of Motorsport on Campus.
2015 saw the motorsport club host a 3 Round go kart championship, formula 1 nights and a formula 1 predictor league. Now with some mileage and experience under the hood, AUMC looks to expand heavily in 2016 to offer more events, more support and more learning/volunteer opportunities throughout 2016.
As well as being a social club, the Motorsport Club also hosts the Adelaide University Motorsport Team; a student run project where students design, build and race a formula style racecar to compete in the annual Formula-SAE Australasia Competition. For more information on the AUMT please visit the AUMT webpage or join the AUMT Facebook page.
