Eclipse Magnetics is delighted to be a sponsor for the University of Wolverhampton Racing team (UWR)

Putting Theory into Practice

The UWR race team is run professionally by the University of Wolverhampton’s engineering students and is a part of the University’s commitment to producing graduates who can apply both theory and practice in the motorsport industry. It is the only student racing team in the UK to compete in the F3 Cup and the AR Morgan Challenge that uses students to design, manufacture, and race in a competitive environment.

Participation in UWR is open to all University of Wolverhampton students, and is a once in a lifetime opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in a fast-paced racing environment. It is a perfect example of the University’s commitment to producing graduates who can apply both theory and practice in the industry.

Investing in the Future

In the last 6 years UWR has given vital experience to 243 team members in various technical roles, many of which have now graduated and now employed by leading F1 teams or Automotive companies such as Bentley, Aston Martin and Morgan.

UWR is unique in Higher Education with the scope of opportunities it offers to students. Overseen by a professional racing driver and motorsport engineers, students race a variety of cars including a Formula 3 Dallara F308 in the F3 Cup and a Formula Student car which students design, build and drive every year in the IMechE Formula Student competition.

The 3 year sponsorship deal gives Eclipse Magnetics the opportunity to share magnetic technology with students and participate in events. The UWR technical and engineering team can also have direct access to the Eclipse Magnetics wide range of Magnetic Workshop Tools and Precision Engineering Equipment.  

Exciting News for 2022

Exciting news for 2022 is that the UWR team will be racing in the Praga Cup in 2022. The Praga Cup is a prestigious single manufacturer competition based around the popular Czech made racing car brand.  The Praga Cup will feature between 16 and 20 cars on track and take in some of the most high profile tracks within the 2022 calendar. Entry into a new competition will present new challenges to the student team but they are confident of adapting quickly and using some of the vast experience gained on the F3 circuit.
