Running Snail - Formula Student

 

Since 2008 TraceParts is one of the proud sponsors of the Formula Student Team of the University of Applied Sciences Amberg-Weiden, Germany.

Besides the sponsorship TraceParts is also providing a educational TraceParts license with unlimited seats in order to boost the team´s design productivity.

 

The Formula Student is an international engineering competition that was founded in the US in 1981 and is now held in seven different countries each year. The main organizer is the largest engineering association in the world, the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers).

 

The Formula Student is based on the idea that a company places an order for the construction of a race car prototype for amateur race car drivers. The vehicle has to fulfill certain requirements and therefore the competition is conceived in such a way that all aspects are evaluated, from the design to the cost control and from the marketing to the practical usability.

 

During the annual competitions in the US, Germany, England, Italy Australia, Brazil and Japan, the race cars go up against a large international group of participants.
