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?
Formula Student 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.
In the course of the development process, the students constantly have to face new challenges while going through similar or even the same processes of the automotive industry. This gives the participants a unique opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical context.
In order to emerge as the winning team, it is not only crucial how the self-designed vehicle performs on the race track, but also whether the students can convince the jury of the overall package consisting of design, performance, sales presentation, costs and business plan.
