Formula Student: a race car from Gaza is coming to the UK

Help

Students in the Gaza Strip have made a racing car they hope will compete in this year's Formula Student, a student engineering competition that takes place in the UK in July.

They built it at the Khan Younis Training Centre, which is operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.

The students used locally made parts to manufacture their car and now are hoping to take part in the race against teams from 30 other countries.
