The Formula Student Competition

So what is it exactly that we do?

About Formula Student

The Formula Student is an international product development competition aimed for the students of engineering and automotive technology. The idea was born in the United States, where university teams have been competing with each other for nearly three decades in the Formula SAE series. The main objectives of the Formula Student competition are to design, build and present a single seat formula car prototype for an amateur weekend racer. During the competition the student built car has to prove its benefits in dynamic and static events by collecting points.

The Events

The jury will judge every team’s car and sales plan based on construction, cost planning and sales presentation. The rest of the judging will be done out on the track, where the students demonstrate in a number of performance tests how well their self-built cars fare in their true environment. The maximum amount of points to achieve is 1000p.
