This Year, Finch Auto Group is proud to begin our sponsorship for the Western Formula Racing team.
Western Formula Racing is a select team of students from Western University, who volunteer their time and talents each year to conceive, design, and build a formula style racecar.
Started in 1988, Western Formula Racing was fundd by the Mechanical Engineering department of the University of Western Ontario (now Western University), the team has been competing on an annual basis since 1996. The team is primarily composed of 20 senior students who all share love and enthusiasm for what they do.
Many students join the team because they hear how good an opportunity like this reflects on their resume and their chances of landing positions in places like Formula 1 or SpaceX. But they stay because of the incredibly fun, yet professional endevour it turns out to be. It is the closest the students come to running their own business, as they have to take total charge of their project, putting on events, and of course, building the car. The students form a tight network of peers, faculty, alumni and sponsors and get to know a lot of people in the industry as well. It is an incredible experience and it greatly contributes to their academic performance, qualifications and overall enhances their univeristy experience.
