URE10

image

After the success of the previous cars, the next big improvement will be the implementation of a fourwheel drive! Because this change in powertrain topology calls for a totally new car concept, the team started the development of the URE10 six months earlier than usual. As a first milestone, they participated in the Class 2 event at Formula Student UK in the summer of 2015. This also lead to the first victories of the URE10. They received not only the prize for the best design, but also for the overall concept!
