WRe2 is the team’s second electric race car, following a successful line up of 6 internal combustion cars and the first EV WRe1.

Being the team’s first foray into electric powertrain the objective with this car was to maximise the development and learning in the electric powertrain by working on evolving the design of chassis from our previous Internal combustion cars.

 The team are aiming for competitive performance in the dynamics with the next generation EV, WRe2, continuing on from the successes experienced with WRe1. WRe2 features all new custom accumulator packs made in-house – a rarity amongst FS teams. 

Having spent much development time on motor control and facilitating torque vectoring, the batteries are expected to deliver formidable performance across all dynamic events. Leveraging the team’s experience with topology optimisation, components such as bulkheads, uprights, and brackets have been optimised to the lightest practical mass.

Warwick Racing would like to thank all those involved with the project for their ongoing support.
