Welcome to KCL Racing:

Welcome to KCL’s Racing Society, King’s College London’s first-EVER Formula Student team! We are an enthusiastic group of both engineering and non-engineering students united by a shared passion for motorsports, automotive engineering, and a desire to compete. So Join us in Joining an International family of Formula Student Teams from Universities across the UK and the World, where motorsport fanatics and young engineers all have One Goal: TO GO RACING!

How to get involved:
KCL Racing consists of two parts: our Competitive Team and our Social Side. Whether you are a seasoned motorsport enthusiast or just starting your journey, there is a place for you at KCL Racing.


Competitive Team:
Get involved in building the first KCL Racing car and represent King’s in a Global University Engineering and Racing Competition! This is your chance to get hands-on experience in designing, fabricating, and testing a (competitive) race car. This year, we aim to enter and compete in the Formula Student Concept Class, and are fueled with ambition to get our first car on track by 2024/25. Our competitive team offers students a platform to gain invaluable knowledge and explore automotive engineering at its finest.

If you want to join our team, please watch our socials, get in touch online, and visit our stand at the KCLSU welcome fair for more information.

Non-Competitive, Social Side:
For those with a passion for motorsports (or simply curious), but wish for a more laid-back involvement, our Social Side offers the perfect balance! Through attending joint sessions with the competitive team, you will learn about the technical aspects of car design, automotive engineering & manufacturing, aerodynamics, and the intricacies of motorsport. The tutorials will be taught by King’s own professors, and leading professionals in motorsport and automotive engineering. We will also host motorsport-themed socials (watching the Singapore GP) and fundraising parties/events. So come meet the other motorsport-loving King’s students, and even if you know nothing about motorsport, we promise a good time!

Our mission
Our mission is to push the boundaries of what a student-run Formula racing team can achieve in little time. This coming year, we are excited to compete in Formula Student’s concept class. This step will accelerate reaching our ultimate goal - having our own car on track.

But we can't do it alone. We invite you to join our mission, whether you're a prospective engineering student or a non-engineering student, we welcome anyone excited about motorsport and building a car. There is always room on the KCL Racing team for those who share our passion, drive, and commitment.
