Fantastic news, we’ve managed to meet our minimum target. From here on out it’s onwards and upwards, remember every penny counts.

Thanks to all of our fantastic donors!

Collingwood College has agreed to match our minimum required funding should we meet it! That means that if we make the remaining £110, the college will grant us another £800 towards getting the team to Australia. If you are interested in supporting engineering and technology at Durham University or simply want to help a student gain a massive boost to their STEM career, please consider donating and help us get to Darwin!

With only 2 weeks until our deadline, we thought it would be a good idea to get a few Collingwood students to share what they think makes DUEM special. Check out the video here.

After 2 years of work, the long awaited day has arrived. So that all our sponsors can see what we have worked towards, here are a few pictures of ORTUS in all its glory.

Last week DUEM took a trip to Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground to test ORTUS on a real track! We needed to make sure that not only was ORTUS fast, it could go the distance. To that end we ended up giving our new double wishbone suspensions a real workout.

We’re looking forwards to going back in a few weeks to test before the car gets shipped off to Australia!
