Lachlan George: As the member focused on physical production and construction of the car, Lachlan G is a dedicated and hard-working engineer who strives for perfection. Working closely with his fellow engineers Lachlan V and Josh, he has demonstrated excellent collaborative skills. Tasked with CNC milling and 3D printing, he stepped up to the challenge to create a high-quality car. As this is our first time entering the competition, the team needed to set up our CNC mill and 3D printers, which Lachlan G handled admirable, by creating mounts, clamps and jigs to secure the materials. He also led assembly of the cars, sanding, priming and painting the surfaces.
Design Engineer/Graphic Designer
Lachlan Vos: A skilful person with technology and design. Having great communication abilities, he works very closely with those around him, this has been a strong asset for his role working closely with everyone.

Using Autodesk Inventor he brought Josh’s designs and drawings to life, accurately designing a car that fits within the regulations, while carrying across the design intent of the original sketches.
Joshua Kan: Josh is impressive in creating innovative and developing unique ways to solve problems, for designing and more. Josh possesses a variety of skills in conceptualising, prototyping and sketching that allowed him to form concepts for new parts or components in our car. Among others, he has worked heavily on developing the front wing, rear wing and wheel support structure assemblies. Josh was responsible for the unique front wing design.
