TBR16 was the most successful of the Team Bath Racing cars – built upon the lessons learned from the previous few years, with a similar chassis construction and engine choice. This resulted in an improved 74 hp and 62 Nm @ 8000rpm, and a ready to race weight of 180kg. Additionally, significant focus was placed on the business side of the competition, and we arrived at competition ready to collect trophies. While we achieved notable results at FS UK and FS East, it was at Formula Student Czech that we won our first competition outright! With an impressive 889 points out of a possible 1000, we were launched to 5th in the world rankings.
