Formula Student Germany starts successfully into its jubilee year

Category: Registration, Competition, 2015

199 Teams from all over the world want to be at the 10th Formula Student Germany at the Hockenheim Ring

The celebration for the 10th anniversary of the international design competition for students will take place between July 28th to August 2nd. About 200 teams from all over the world are hoping to compete at the Hockenheim Ring, though in total, only 115 total registered teams will have the chance to send their self-built racecars to the track. The remaining 84 teams still hope to have the chance to gain a spot for the chance to  compete in one of the two classes of the competition.

The enthusiasm for the student event is still as great, even in the 10th year. Once again, 40 Teams will be competing with their electric vehicles at the Formula Student Electric (FSE), with 25 registered teams coming from Germany. They will be competing with competition from not only Scandinavia, South Europe, Belgium, the Netherlands and Switzerland, but also from Canada, Pakistan, China and the USA. A further 35 Teams from all over the world are still hoping for a spot to become available, a demand even greater than the previous year. The FSE was organised for the first time worldwide in Germany in 2010, is now becoming a more and more important class of the competition and a permanent part for the design competition. The goal is for the students to address challenges in order to better equip and prepare them for future careers in the field of E-mobility.

75 Teams will compete against each other this year in the traditional competition with internal combustion engines, the Formula Student Combustion (FSC). In addition to teams from Europe, India, Egypt, Thailand, Russia and the United States, 27 German universities want to use their home advantage at the Hockenheim Ring and compete for the victory. A total of 47 teams are on the waiting list and hope still to win one of the prestigious starting places.

FSG is about the overall package. As well as the performance of the student designs on the racetrack, the design, cost planning and business model must convince the jury of experts from industry and business. The driving dynamics, handling, acceleration, endurance and fuel / energy-consumption are examined here in autocross, skid pad, acceleration and endurance races.
