AU Sport: Blues Awards

Hot off the press, last night the Adelaide University Motorsport Club celebrated its affiliation with Adelaide University Sport, our university’s sports association.

As an AU Sport Club, incorporating our Formula SAE team, AUMC has many benefits.

The Club runs social events such as F1 GP nights and the Go Kart Championship, as well as offering increased promotional and recruiting opportunities for AUMT.

Kailin Sullivan, AUMC President and AUMT Project Manager, collected the Club’s Certificate of Affiliation at the AU Sport Blues Awards.

Club membership is open to the general public as well as students at the University of Adelaide.

Engineering in Brief

ADL-17 is set to be revealed at our upcoming Launch Party, including a wide range of new components.

Meantime, design work continues towards the electric powertrain for ADL-18.

Community Involvement: Science Alive!

Together with the University of Adelaide, AUMT recently attended Science Alive!

Here we displayed the chassis from the recently retired ADL-16.

Our team was excited to show off what we do, promoting our sponsors and the benefits of studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) at the University of Adelaide.

Sponsor Shoutout!

A huge thank you to Calm Aluminium, a new-for-2017 AUMT gold sponsor!

Calm Aluminium’s generous assistance has provided AUMT with a range of aluminium plate, sheet and tube material, which has been machined, welded, cut and shaped to form many parts of ADL-17.

If you need aluminium for any application, make sure to head to to check out Calm Aluminium’s product range.
