Dayco Australia sponsored Formula SAE Team, Monash Motorsport, has placed first overall in both the combustion and electric categories of the Formula SAE Australasian competition, triumphing over 30 teams that took part in the international competition held last December.
As a result of this effort, along with the 2019 achievements of the Monash University of Melbourne based Formula Student Team, the Dayco sponsored team is now the number one ranked Formula Student team in the world for the combustion engine division and third in the electric vehicle division.
This significant milestone follows Monash Motorsport’s first global Formula SAE victory gained last year, while also marking the debut of the team’s third car, a driverless Formula Student variant. This is the first Australian designed and developed Australian Formula Student driverless vehicle. The car’s capabilities were on display at the Formula SAE Australasian competition, gaining significant attention and acclaim.
The Monash Motorsport Formula SAE Team now embarks on their 2020 European campaign, travelling with three cars (combustion, electric and driverless) to Germany, the United Kingdom and Hungary to compete on the world stage.
“We congratulate the dedicated and highly talented Monash Motorsport team on their Australasian competition victory. Dayco is proud to support this team that continue to lead the way in Formula Student car design, reliability and performance,” stated Dayco Australia Sales and Marketing Director, David McClurg.
“We look forward to the new season ahead and to more successes for this great team on the global stage, using several of our engine and thermal management components,” Mr. McClurg added.
Dayco Australia is proud to support the development of this country’s future automotive and motorsport engineers through the company’s extensive motorsport marketing program which includes Supercars, Porsche Carrera Cup, GT and more in 2020.
