FORMULA STUDENT COMPETITION

 

Formula Student is a worldwide competition that challenges more than 800 university teams from around the world to conceive, design, manufacture and develop a formula-style race car to compete.

STATIC EVENTS

 

· Business Plan

The objective of the BPP is to evaluate the team’s ability to develop and deliver a comprehensive business model which demonstrates their product – a prototype race car – could become a rewarding business opportunity that creates a monetary profit.

 

· Cost Report and manufacturing

The objective of the cost and manufacturing event is to evaluate the team’s understanding of the manufacturing processes and costs associated with the construction of a prototype race car. This includes trade off decisions between content and cost, make or buy decisions and understanding the differences between prototype and mass production. 

 

· Design

The concept of the design event is to evaluate the student’s engineering process and effort that went into the design of a vehicle, meeting the intent of the competition.

 

DYNAMIC EVENTS

 

· Acceleration

The acceleration track is a straight line with a length of 75 m from starting line to finish line. The track is at least 5 m wide. Cones are placed along the track at intervals of about 5 m. Cone locations are not marked on the pavement.

 

· Autocross

The time, behavior and maneuverability of the car during a round trip will be assessed without the presence of the rest of the competitors.

 

· Endurance

It is about finish 22km in the circuit, with the difference that there are more cars on the track. 

 

· Skid-Pad
