“Primus” the Formula Car Made by Team Primus

With a car powered by a 600 cc motorbike engine developing 84 HP at 11,500 RPM and 40 lb-ft torque at 10,500 RPM, and a curb weight of approximately 300 kg, Team Primus faced multiple challenges in sourcing parts and funding the project. They won Race Tech’s Spirit of Formula Student 2019 category for displaying tenacity and creativity in the face of such hardships. For their technical ability at designing and building the car, they also won the Allan Stainforth Award for Best Newcomer 2019.
