This project is about design and fabrication of glass-fiber composite bodywork for UTeM formula style race car. The design of the bodywork is made using the CAD software named CATIA V5 to produce the detail 3D design. The determination of plies and orientation for the composite bodywork is made based on the highest flexural strength which is the Chopped Strand Mat (CSM) fiberglass which gives the result of 320.412 MPa flexural stresses at maximum flexural load applied. The method of fabricating the composite bodywork is using manual hand lay-up technique for the whole process. The overall bodywork weight is measured with the digital weighting scale and the overall weight of the bodywork is 9410 gram. The weight reduction of nose cone and side pod from previous bodywork is 1692 gram which gives 25% less weight compared to current bodywork and suggested to be implemented at the new UTeM formula style race car bodywork section.
