Adelaide University Motorsport Team

Description

The Adelaide University Motorsport Team is a fully student run team formed originally in 2001 as an engineering honours project. Since then, AUMT has grown expansively consisting of a varied group of students from engineering and other faculties alike. As one of the largest single projects at the University not only has it catered to volunteers, supporters, or those involved or aiming to be involved in the industry, it has well and truly become the home of Motorsport on campus.

After a successful 2018 with a fully running electric vehicle, AUMT is well on the way to building on the strong foundation set in the last year – with aims to provide more events, more support and more learning and volunteer opportunities. For more information on the AUMT, please visit the AUMT webpage or join the AUMT Facebook page.

AUMT Social Events

The AU Motorsport Team hosts a number of social events throughout the calendar year including:

  • On Campus BBQ’s

Where profits will go to AUMT supported Charities, including Leukaemia Foundation and the MS Foundation.

  • Competition/Social Nights

  • Quiz Nights

  • Simulator Competition

2019 O’Week Events

There will be two displays to come visit, complete with the 2017 IC petrol car and last year's EV. There is a simulator available to put your driving skills to the test, and is the perfect opportunity to chat to some of the members helping out.

At O'Week, you will be able to sign up for either of the available memberships: Full or Social.

The AUMT Full Membership will enable you to fully engage with the Motorsport team, and giving you the opportunity to participate in all aspects of running an electric race car. Whereas the AUMT Social membership allows you to keep up to date with everything the team is up to, and participate in all social events organised by the team, as well as spectating at test sessions when our fully Electric Racecar is running on track!

Sign ups are open throughout the year, but we recommend joining during O’Week to get the most out of the team!

Benefits- Full membership

As well as access to the events above, AUMT members will have the chance to work on and design parts for the race car. You will also have access to Motorsport Apparel and Merchandise. AUMT will also highlight any job/volunteering opportunities in motorsport, as well as identify pathways into the industry.
If our members require volunteers to help with their own motorsport careers, we ask they contact us so we can find people and help anyway we can.
