Franna Partner with UQ Racing Formula SAE Team

Franna® is delighted to announce its partnership with the UQ Racing Formula SAE team. UQ Racing is a team of students from the University of Queensland who design, develop, and build race cars to compete in the Formula SAE competition. Their team is composed of a diverse selection of students from a range of backgrounds including engineering, business, marketing, and IT.

This year, Franna assisted UQ racing by providing the team with a brand new MoTeC 150. The new ECU has greatly supported UQR with implementing their new control systems as they continuously strive to improve their performance on the track.

In August, we welcomed the UQR board of directors to our Eagle Farm HQ. As part of the visit, delegates were given a tour of the world-class Franna manufacturing facilities and also used the opportunity to shoot a special promo video which you can view below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Danny Black, General Manager at Franna said ‘We are thrilled to be supporting the UQ Racing team with their efforts both on, and off the track. Team Franna are already well-acquainted with UQR, as we have a few alumni and dedicated supporters amongst our ranks in Eagle Farm. Formula SAE is an exciting competition which allows the engineers of the future to bring their concepts and ideas to life. Not only is this an exciting project to get behind from a sporting perspective, it also empowers local engineering which is of huge importance to the Franna business and of course, the Australian economy.”
