Getting to Formula Student Germany, taking place in the Hockenheimring, Germany, resulted in a disappointing 28th place out of 35 teams in the electric vehicles class, as we didn’t get to race in any of the dynamic events. The problem was in the structural design of our accumulator packs that prevented us from passing Scrutineering altogether.
We were forced to rip everything apart, fix the structural part to be cleared by the officials and get everything assembled again. We made a huge effort but we didn’t get the job done in time in order to race. We are certainly very frustrated about not racing in Germany and we do apologise for the poor performance.
Overall, these competitions made us stronger and even more determined to prove our team’s quality. This year we will go again out on the track with our new vehicle, which will be lighter and even more powerful. We are really happy for you sponsoring UoP Racing and hopefully we will be companions for the 2017-2018 season too.
