The first big event of this summer was the Formula Student UK event at Silverstone in July. It is something Cardiff University team attend every year to compete against other universities from around the globe. The team is looking forward to more testing time during the summer in preparation for the European road trip FS Czech and FS Italy competitions.

Sean Creed of the Cardiff University Racing Team, “​Previously the lighting we had was very poor and fluorescent which made the tedious jobs that much more difficult. Now with the LED lighting kindly provided by Sedna, the pits and paddocks are safely and professionally illuminated which scores us good points with the judges and competitor teams.  And the quality of the light means we can work more efficiently and precisely; very important when challenging for a top 10 global position in the rankings.”

Sedna has a long history supporting young talents throughout various events and projects. The spark with Cardiff Racing was instant. Local team, bright students, phenomenal effort­these are the qualities that Sedna supports and promotes. 

Nathan Edwards, of Sedna, said “We love working with young engineering talent and have proved this time and again over the past few years. We knew about some of the difficulties facing a university supported team competing against some of the world’s elite and we set out to find how we could help. It turned out that lighting was one item that had been missed by budget restraints. Once we sorted out with lighting we had our engineers provide technical support and resources to the team such as rapid production facilities and components for the car. We are wishing best of luck to Cardiff University on their European road trip this autumn."
