Formula Student was my choice for my final year project as it is a highly regarded engineering competition. The role of engine management and tuning was selected as it was the most technically challenging and an extremely integral part of the project.
This year’s engine is a Honda CBR600rr which I selected by comparing three engines using a decision matrix, using robust technical data to select the most suitable engine. I have successfully tuned the engine using a dynamometer and mapping software to gain the best performance out of it, while learning constantly throughout this process. It has been a demanding but extremely rewarding project that I have thoroughly enjoyed.
