Formula Racing Miskolc is proud to welcome Eurocircuits as a team sponsor in the 2022 season. The company helps the team’s work with manufacturing high-end PCBs for developing a reliable electrical system and achieve good results during this season in the Formula Student competition series.
We got a chance from Eurocircuits to introduce our team so taking the opportunity we share some major information about our team and the Formula Student competition series which can be read below.
Formula Racing Miskolc
Formula Racing Miskolc is an initiative group of volunteering students where team members can gather extensive understanding and experience in the automotive industry and various fields of motorsport. They can learn the true meaning of teamwork, as well as use their knowledge in practice. The project provides an opportunity to become familiar with the usage of the most advanced technologies, as well as offering an indirect way to the industrial companies for the students who are involved. The team members are students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Informatics, Economics and Materials Sciences, who participate in the basic and master’s degree program of the region’s most significant institution of higher education and several professors and PhD students help our work. Besides providing the human resources, the University of Miskolc also provides the operation for the Formula Racing Miskolc with significant professional, infrastructural, financial support, and personal relations. The interests and extra activities of the team members include the automotive industry and there are several national and regional scientific students’ competitions as well as thesis works to prove it. It is natural that the members of the Formula Racing Miskolc are willing to invest their free time into research and development of the project, proving their dedication to and success for the Formula Student movement.
The goal of Formula Student is to design, construct and introduce a formula racing car to a conceptual market and to race that car in several international racing events with the help of all members who have a legal student status. The organization ensures the team members gain valuable insights in their field of expertise and could build channels which enable smooth communication between the students of Formula Student and the supporter companies of the movement. These competitions are held in several countries across Europe, the most notable ones are Germany, England, Austria, and Spain. An average competition takes up to four days, which consists of two days of scrutineering and assuring that the car complies with various security rules. If it meets all these regulations, the vehicle will be allowed to take part in the next two days events. These can be sorted into two main groups: static and dynamic. Static events are presentations which include defending the engineering design, presenting a business plan and cost analysis. These give 40% of the total scores. Dynamic events include the “Acceleration”, the so called “Skid Pad” which tests the suspension dynamics of the car on an “8” shaped track, and the “Autocross” which examines the car’s performance on a specific section of the racetrack during measured lap time. Finally, the “Endurance” event where the overall time performance and fuel efficiency of the vehicle are taken under scope on a 22 km long track.
We would like to thank Eurocircuits for the many electrical circuits they provide for us which serve reliably in our race car.
