BMW Group x Formula Student Germany.

This year, the challenge was once again: Who will build the fastest racing car that also convinces in terms of construction, costs and business plan?

20 September 2023

Formula Student Germany is an international design competition at the Hockenheimring, where students from all over the world pursue the goal of designing and manufacturing a single-seater formula racing car as a team and then competing against various, international competitors.

It's impressive to see how the teams combine their diverse skills, enthusiasm and commitment to design a race-ready vehicle in such a short period of time that is fun to drive on the track and boasts impressive innovations.
