Formula Student

The concept behind the Formula Student competition is that a fictional manufacturing company has contracted a student design team to develop a small Formula-style racecar. The prototype racecar is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item. Each student team designs, builds and tests a prototype based on a series of rules, whose purpose is both ensuring on-track safety (the cars are driven by the students themselves) and promoting clever problem solving.
The competition was introduced in 1978 in the USA. Since then, it expanded towards other countries and continents. Nowadays, nearly 600 teams participate in Formula Student events all over the world!
In addition to these events, various sponsors of the competition provide awards for superior design accomplishments. For example, innovative use of electronics, recyclability, crash worthiness, analytical approach to design, and overall dynamic performance are some of the awards available. At the beginning of the competition, the vehicle is checked for rule compliance during the Technical Inspection. Its braking ability, rollover stability, electrical safety and noise levels are checked before the vehicle is allowed to compete in the dynamic events (Acceleration, Skidpad, Autocross and Endurance).
Formula Student encompasses all aspects of a business including R&D, manufacturing, testing, marketing, management and fundraising. Formula Student takes students out of the class room and puts them in the real world.
