The arrangement of a single seat race ear has remained the same since 1960s. A vehicle designed for a race is normally driven on the limit. For this reason each part of the car is customized in order to optimize the performance. Changes can be made to the aerodynamic factor and also suspension system for better handling. Aerodynamic is significantly exploited in the design of modern race car. A single seat race car was built by student and staff of Automotive Engineering Department in order to participate in Formula Varsity 2010 which was held by the Faculty of Mechanical Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka. The three day race event was divided into static and dynamic categories. The competition require each team from twenty higher learning institutions to design, build, and test a small, open wheeled, single seat race car. The design specifications are set by the event organizer and each designed car need to comply with the specifications. The main objective of participating in the competition is to develop the knowledge and skills base of the automotive indust1y at the university level. In addition to that, by participating in the event enable students to have practical and hands-on experience pmticularly in automotive engineering. Apart from that, students will gain valuable experience in motorsport racing can be gained by the students. Last but not least, students can also enhance their soft skills since they are working in a team to build the race vehicle. The Formula Varsity Race car was succesfully developed and compete in the UTeM Formula Varsity 2012 competition with 2nd Place overall. In additional, the result of these study have been published in several journal and proceedings.
