The Octanes gear themselves up for Formula Student

Sunday at 5 am: While the sun has only just started rising, a group of students are already loading their cars with tools, cables, oil, brake fluid and everything else you need to test racing cars. They are the Octanes and have just built a new racing car for the international Formula Student competition, as they do every year.
