Adelaide University Motorsport Club

Adelaide University Motorsport Club
The home of Motorsport on campus

Description

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. 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.

AUMC is set to expand in 2018 by offering more events, more support and more learning/volunteer opportunities.

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 race car to compete in the annual Formula-SAE Australasia Competition. 2018 sees an exciting change for the Motorsport Team as they are developing the first electric race car in the Universities history. For more information on the AUMT, please visit the AUMT webpage or join the AUMT Facebook page.
