FOREWORD FROM DIRECTOR
 

Alhamdulillah, all praise to Allah. We will soon be meeting again in the 2012 Formula Varsity UTeM. For many students, it is a much anticipated event that provides them with the opportunity of competing and challenging their counterparts in the same field. We hope this event will be a good platform for the students to compete positively among themselves as well as a chance to extend their network in the automotive world.

Formula Varsity UTeM is a competition that challenges students to design, develop and produce a single seat open-wheel formula style racing machine to be raced in a real circuit environment. They will have to produce a race machine within a given specification and this will provide students the challenging experience of applying their knowledge to a real engineering situation.

Since 2006, UTeM has organized this event on a biennial basis. The upcoming event will be the 4th Formula Varsity to be held at the Melaka International Motorsports Circuit (MIMC). The support from the State Government of Melaka to include this event in its tourist calendar as well as from the University and Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia augurs well for the reputation of this event. Furthermore, it is a place where students can showcase their inherent capabilities.

We would like to welcome every Institution of Higher Education to join and support Formula Varsity UTeM 2012.  I look forward to seeing you all at the MIMC in October. May the spirit of racing continue and endeavour to reach newer heights of accomplishment.
 

FV2012: Where the spirit begins
