Construction Team


The Construction team are responsible for fitting all of the components of the car together. There are over 500 separate pieces in Hummingbird and they must all be installed in the right way for the car to work.
The heavy responsibility is making sure that all the parts are tightened correctly – if something comes loose during a race, it could mean that we get brought back to the pits on a recovery trailer and we would lose many valuable minutes.

All the construction team become experts with spanners, Allen keys, and sockets. We sometimes have to resort to using the persuader (hammer) when items do not go in or out smoothly.

Whenever a component is attached we must make sure it works properly; brakes, safety harness, mirrors, controls etc. We also try to work out ways of improving the designs as we go. Faster and Further are always on our minds.
