Frequently asked questions
How many hours per week must I commit to?
With formula, you get out what you put in. We set no formal hourly commitment, asking that you complete your responsibilities on time, and up to our high quality standards. Member commitment ranges between 4 hours to 80 hours per week, depending on the role. The more time you commit, the more ambitious the projects become, and the more your marketable skills will be enhanced.
Is Formula only for Engineering students?
Although our team is roughly 80% engineering students, there are roles for all different faculties on WFR. We currently have students in non-engineering programs such as psychology, physics, computer science, law, and economics. Nothing prevents these students from taking on technical roles, however they often take on business, media, sponsorship and financial management roles.
So who drives?
Quite possibly the most frequently asked question; our driver team consists of four drivers in total. Two lead drivers for the autocross and endurance events, and two reserve drivers for the acceleration and skid pad events. Drivers are required to be dedicated members of a vehicle subsystem, complete our driver development program, an be available for the 3 month race season.
