The team consists of more than 65 students from WMG. The students designed a pod with 200kW power. The acceleration to 500km/h in a low-pressure environment is planned for 14 seconds. The final design package report will be finished on 12th January 2019.

In case of proceeding to the next round, Warwick’s Hyperloop Team will start production of the pod from February 2019 to perform a high-speed run at SpaceX Hyperloop Test Track in California, summer 2019.
