A brand-new event Composites in Motorsport welcome participants from 22-23 October 2019 at the Williams F1’s conference centre. The event will take participants through a journey to discover the advantages of the use of composite materials in the world of motorsport.

It will welcome keynote speakers including Motorsport, F1 and Aerodynamics Specialist Professor Willem Toet (Sauber Aerodynamics), CEO of the MIA (Motorsport Industry Association), Chris Aylett and recently retired Chief Composites Engineer, Brian O’Rourke of Williams Advanced Engineering.

Other speakers joining the event to share their knowledge and experience of working within this exciting and future-focussed industry include representatives of Gordon Murray Design, Mahindra Racing Formula E Team and BComp, and many others.

A must-see event for those industry professionals seeking lightweight technology solutions, the programme will cover a number of sessions focussing on how these materials play a role in the motorsport industry including the design, manufacturing, techniques and processes. 

“The response we have had for this event is phenomenal. We are proud to provide a platform for this industry to come together, showcase some fantastic technologies and discuss what lies ahead for the world of motorsport,” commented Siobhan Longhurst, NetComposites’ Communications Manager.

The UK composites industry is a world leader, bred from the R&D attained from the motorsport arena over the last 30 plus years. McLaren’s first F1 carbon fibre monocoque in the early 1980s led the way to the same technology used in all global mainstream motorsport.

The motorsport industry has been instrumental in driving the technology from bespoke and low volume process to large-scale manufacture, including additive manufacturing, to bring composite technology to mainstream engineering.
