James Nicholls
Major Project
The objective was to design and build the front and rear suspension systems for the Aston University formula student racing car. The main aspect was the design of suspension geometry and a suitable anti-roll system. It also involved specifying all suspension parameters to provide a setup which gave optimum handling characteristics.

The introduction of adjustable wishbone mounting points and front anti-roll bar has allowed for greater adjustability to the dynamics of the car depending upon driver preference and conditions on race day. The car will be raced at Silverstone against other Universities from around the globe.

My Next 3 Years
Working in the Automotive Industry, hopefully involved in motorsport.
