In 2019 the Formula Student Germany (FSG) event will be held for the 14th time in Hockenheim.

Over the years the event grew from 40 teams and 1 class to 118 teams who are competing in 3 classes.

This event is only possible with the amazing support of a large number of volunteers – our so called “Red Shirts” team.

Our Red Shirts are the backbone of the event - without all these helping hands we couldn’t hold a successful event. By passing on their motivation and enthusiasm to all the teams, guests and sponsors the red shirts have a crucial impact on the unique spirit of Formula Student and make it a great experience for everyone.

We are looking for volunteers for the Formula Student Germany 2019 event, who support us in making this event again an unforgettable one for all its participants.

Whether you are interested in founding your own Formula Student team at your university or you are a member of a team but didn't finish your car yet, whether have a car ready for competition but unfortunately are still on the waiting list because of popular demand, or you already have finished university, left your old formula student team and just miss the Formula Student spirit, then you are more than welcome to JOIN OUR TEAM OF RED SHIRTS!!!

The event will take place from August 5th to August 11th 2019, whereas our volunteers kick-off will already start on Sunday August 4th lunchtime. In order to familiarize you with the different jobs and to deploy you during the whole event, it is required that you are able to attend during the whole event. Your job as Red Shirt ends on Monday 12th at 14:00 after wrap up.

You have the choice to either stay the nights in a hotel in Schwetzingen in double bed rooms or on the campground with all the other teams right next to the Hockenheimring. Both accommodations will be paid for you by Formula Student Germany and we provide you with food (our own culina) and beverages during the event days (camping equipment cannot be provided by us). Needless to mention the big party on Sunday night, which you will attend as a special guest.

In case you only find time to volunteer during the weekend, we encourage you to apply as "weekend volunteer". For this, it is obligatory that you a) had been active in a FSG team before and b) that you are able to attend this years' event from Friday 18:00 till Sunday 21:00.

We expect from you that you are motivated, cooperative and reliable. The event language is English so it is mandatory that your English is fluent but don’t worry if you are not a native speaker.

The event days could be long including some evening events. Our team works in the background and gets everything ready for the 118 participating teams, thousands of students, guests and visitors. The team of volunteers is the glue which keeps everything together and the grease which makes it run smoothly. 

And most importantly – it’s fun! Those of you who joined the FSG family before could tell and share their experience. You won’t regret your decision to join the event as Red Shirt at FSG 2019 in Hockenheim!

If you are interested, then please login and fill out the application form. The application deadline is March 31st, 2019.

In case we receive more applications than needed for this year’s event we will have to make a selection where we would prefer candidates with Formula Student experience. In any case we will let you know until Mid of May the latest. 

Formula Student Germany is looking forward to welcoming you as part of the FSG family!
