TAU - 09

CAR 09.jpg


Being the first car TAU Racing produced, the emphasis was placed on reliability during the two year build process. The small team did a fantastic job of starting the team and attracting sponsors, as well as establishing a work space in the university. We had an extremely successful year at FSUK in 2009, which set TAU Racing up well for the years to follow.
