Goose Live Events put the wheels in motion for the largest ever international Formula Student event this year, which attracted a record 3,500 engineering undergraduates.

The Surrey-based corporate and public events agency organised the event, which took place on 14-17 July at Silverstone, on behalf of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers for the ninth year running.

More than 120 teams from 31 countries registered, and were challenged to conceive, design, build, cost, present and compete a small single-seat racing car in a series of static and dynamic competitions throughout the four-day competition.

Goose Live Events was contracted to manage all elements of the pre-event planning and co-ordinate the logistics on site. Responsibilities included appointing suppliers, managing security and health and safety, creating judging schedules and signage, supervising the site and dynamic track layouts, marshalling and other event-management duties.

Neil Carr-Jones, senior event manager at Goose Live, said: "We are very proud to play an integral part in an event which challenges and discovers the top engineers of the future. Organising the logistics of an event such as Formula Student is no mean feat but we find it immensely rewarding to be involved."
