The countless hours of work have shown its worth it by becoming the overall winner of Formula SAE in the electric car classification!
We arrived to the competition held in the Autodromo Riccardo Paletti circuit with diverse feelings – we knew that FEST18 is fast, however, we had no knowledge regarding how our vehicle would compete with others. As the team spent the majority of the time before the competitions working on the car itself, winning the design award in the static events was definitely one of the highlights of the night. Together with the success of the dynamic events, we aquired the following prizes:
• Dallara’s award for best car/resources balance
• The best car in efficiency
• First place in the design event
• The overall winner of the electric vehicle classification
Although there were no awards given out for the dynamic events, FS Team Tallinn was placed first in skidpad and endurance and second in autocross and acceleration.
Proud of the success of the first competition, the team has no time to enjoy the celebrations as we will be competing in FS East in Hungary starting Wednesday.
