Team Bath Racing Electric (TBRe) was founded in 2015. We are an exciting and innovative student motorsport team based at the University of Bath. Our team of undergraduates from across the university design, build, and race a formula style car for the Formula Student competition against teams from all around the world.
Last year we competed at Silverstone, but we will also be competing in Zhuhai, China in November, making us the first UK electric team to compete abroad. During the Silverstone competition, the team obtained its first silverware, winning the Class 2 competition.
Unlike many competitors, TBRe utilises a fully electric powertrain with an Emrax 228 motor rear wheel drive and a custom in-house designed and built battery pack.
Most notably, TBRe is the UK’s best Formula Student team with an electric powertrain, having maintained the title since the 2017 competition.
We comprise over 50 professional, motivated and committed students from across our Electrical and Mechanical Engineering departments as well as Management and Computer Science, making our team truly cross-disciplinary and allowing students from any discipline to share and gain knowledge.
Since our formation in 2015, TBRe has grown and developed at an astonishing rate. This summer we ranked as the top UK electric team at Formula Student UK. Now we will build on our success with a new design, optimised mechanically and electrically, to take to Silverstone and this year’s further goal: a European Formula Student event.
Our project would not be possible without the generous support of our many sponsors. We work hard to provide a mutually beneficial relationship with each of our supporting organisations. This can range from a simple promotion in our team media to close technical collaboration on some of the exciting and innovative aspects of our car.
