Dear friends of Formula Student Germany,
In 2012 Formula Student Germany remains true to its tradition of advancement. Not only are there more internationally
established teams that participate, but also is the level of
technological development displayed ever increasing.
At the same time Formula Student Germany is changing
more and more from an educational project into a test bed
for technical innovation, where the use of innovative materials and concepts across a range of different fields has become commonplace. This is not limited to the technical solutions alone, it is also reflected in experienced organisations,
networks and cooperations amongst teams, or amongst the
different locations of a single team.
As teams and cars develop, FSG develops too. In spring 2012
for the first time asphalt mills and track pavers worked at
the Hockenheimring on behalf of Formula Student Germany.
The goal: enlargement of the track and a breakthrough onto
the circuit. Thanks to this redesign we have gained valuable
space for teams, guests and audience as well as exciting
fights between the teams on track. We expect a pure goosebumps Motodrom-sensation. Additionally, this year’s setup
with a longer track is a test to see whether it is possible to
let more teams participate in 2013.
This is the most visual innovation, but not the only one! Immerse yourself and experience – once more – FSG and let us
experience the continuous development together.
Have fun and good luck to all.
Liebe Freundinnen und Freunde der Formula Student Germany,
auch die FSG 2012 bleibt der Tradition der Weiterentwicklung treu. Dies bezieht sich auf immer mehr Teams, die sich
weltweit etablieren, genauso wie auf das technologische Level, mit dem sie sich vor Ort präsentieren.
Mit mehr und mehr Verwendung innovativer Materialien und
Konzepten in den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen, entwickelt
sich die FSG von einem reinen Ausbildungsmotor, zunehmend gleichzeitig zu einem Innovationslabor. Das sehen Sie
nicht nur an den eigentlichen Technologien und Lösungen,
sondern auch bei erlebten Organisationen, Vernetzungen
und Formen der Zusammenarbeit unter den Teams bzw. von
verschiedenen Standorten eines einzelnen Teams.
So wie sich die Teams und die Autos, entwickeln, so entwickelt sich auch die FSG weiter. Im Frühjahr 2012 arbeiteten
im Auftrag der Formula Student Germany auf dem Hockenheimring erstmals Asphaltfräsen und Teermaschinen. Das
Ziel: die Erweiterung der Streckenlegung und ein Durchbruch auf den eigentlichen Ring. Durch diese Neugestaltung
schaffen wir mehr Platz für die Teilnehmer, unsere Gäste
und Zuschauer sowie spannende Kämpfe der Teams auf
dem Kurs. Wir erwarten Gänsehaut-Motodrom-Feeling pur.
Und nebenbei ist dies die Probe dafür, ob durch die größere
Strecke die Möglichkeit besteht in 2013 noch mehr Teams
teilnehmen zu lassen.
Das ist die sichtbarste Neuerung, aber bei weiten nicht die
Einzige! Tauchen Sie ein und erleben Sie - einmal mehr - die
FSG und lassen Sie uns gemeinsam die Weiterentwicklung
erfahren.
Tim Hannig (FSG e.V.)
and the Formula Student Germany Team
Viel Spaß und viel Erfolg,
Tim Hannig (FSG e.V.)

Formula Student Germany - An Introduction
Formula Student Germany - Eine Einführung
Formula Student Germany consists of two competitions that
run in parallel: Formula Student Combustion – with combustion engines – and Formula Student Electric – with electric
motors. What both competitions have in common is that as
a team effort, students build a single seated formula-style
race-car with which they compete against teams from all
over the world. The competition, however, is not simply won
by the team with the fastest car, but rather by the team
with the best overall package of design, race performance,
cost management and sales planning. To succeed in this,
interdisciplinary teamwork and an efficient team structure in
particular are crucial.
Formula Student Germany complements the students’ theoretical education with a challenging and intensive practical
experience in designing and manufacturing as well as considering the economic aspects of automotive engineering.
For the competition, the teams have to assume that they
develop a race-car prototype which will be evaluated for series production. The target customer group is the non-professional weekend-racer, for whom the race-car must offer
very good driving characteristics regarding to acceleration,
braking and handling. Furthermore, it should be offered at a
reasonable price and be reliable as well as dependable. Additionally, the car‘s market value increases due to other factors such as aesthetics, ergonomics and the use of available
standard purchase components.
The competition
The challenge the teams face is to construct and build a prototype that best matches these given criteria. To determine
the winner, a jury of experts from the motorsport, automotive and supplier industries judge every design, cost planning
and business plan in comparison to the other competing
teams. Furthermore, the performance on the racetrack is
decisive; here the students’ self-built single-seaters prove
how well they hold up under real-life conditions in a number
of so called dynamic disciplines.
Die Formula Student Germany besteht aus zwei parallel stattfindenden Wettbewerben: die Formula Student Combustion
– mit Verbrennungsmotoren – und die Formula Student Electric – mit Elektromotoren. Bei beiden Wettbewerben bauen
Studenten in Teamarbeit einen einsitzigen Formelrennwagen,
mit dem sie gegen Teams aus der ganzen Welt antreten.
Doch nicht unbedingt das schnellste Auto gewinnt, sondern
das Team mit dem besten Gesamtpaket aus Konstruktion,
Rennperformance, Finanzplanung und Verkaufsargumentation. Hierfür sind insbesondere interdisziplinäre Teamarbeit
und eine effiziente Teamstruktur von großer Bedeutung.
Die Formula Student Germany ergänzt das Studium um herausfordernde und intensive praktische Erfahrungen mit Konstruktion und Fertigung sowie den wirtschaftlichen Aspekten
des Automobilbaus. Die Studenten sollen in Vorbereitung auf
den Wettbewerb annehmen, dass sie den Prototypen eines
Rennwagens bauen, der ebenfalls daraufhin bewertet wird,
ob er in Kleinserie produziert werden kann. Zielgruppe ist
der nicht-professionelle Wochenendrennfahrer, für den der
Rennwagen unter anderem sehr gute Fahreigenschaften
hinsichtlich Beschleunigung, Bremskraft und Handling aufweisen muss. Außerdem sollte das Fahrzeug wenig kosten
sowie zuverlässig und einfach zu unterhalten sein. Weiterhin
wird sein Marktwert durch Faktoren wie Ästhetik, Ergonomie
und den Einsatz üblicher Serienteile gesteigert.
Der Wettbewerb
Die Herausforderung für die Teams besteht darin, einen Prototypen zu konstruieren und zu bauen, der diesen Anforderungen am besten entspricht. Um den Sieger zu ermitteln,
bewertet eine Jury aus Experten der Motorsport-, Automobil- und Zulieferindustrie alle Konstruktionen, Kostenpläne
und Verkaufspräsentationen im Vergleich zu den konkurrierenden Teams. Zusätzlich beweisen die Studenten auf der
Rennstrecke in unterschiedlichen sogenannten dynamischen
Disziplinen, wie sich ihre selbstgebauten Einsitzer in der Praxis bewähren.
With different disciplines the competition reflects all aspects which have to be kept in mind when constructing and building a car.
Der Wettbewerb spiegelt mit seinen verschiedenen Disziplinen alle Aspekte wider, die bei Konstruktion und Bau eines Fahrzeugs bedacht
werden müssen.

The Disciplines at a Glance
Die Disziplinen im Überblick
Altogether, in FSG there are eight disciplines. Of these, three
are static in which the teams and their cars are judged
based on reports, discussions and presentations. The other
five disciplines are called dynamic disciplines involving a moving car and thus evaluating different performance aspects
of the car.
Insgesamt gibt es bei der FSG acht Disziplinen. In drei von
diesen werden die Teams und ihre Autos in Präsentationen und Diskussionen bewertet. Dies sind die statischen
Disziplinen. Die anderen fünf sind dynamisch und bewerten
verschiedene Aspekte des fahrenden Autos.
The static disciplines
Statische Disziplinen
During the three static disciplines the students present their
engineering design, cost planning and business plan. These
are discussed with a jury of experts from motorsports, automotive and supplier industries.
In den drei statischen Disziplinen präsentieren die Studenten
ihre Konstruktionen, ihre Kostenplanung und ihr Geschäftsmodell. Diese werden mit einer Jury aus Experten der Motorsport-, Automobil- und Zuliefererindustrie diskutiert.
Engineering Design: In the Design Report the students set
their constructive solutions and the resulting advantages out
in writing. Eight pages of text and technical drawings have
to convince the judges of the construction of the car and its
qualities for the sales market of the non-professional weekend autocross driver. At the competition the judges examine
the constructive solutions and discuss them with the students. The scoring regards the written report, the answers
in the discussion and the inspection of the car.
Engineering Design: Im Design Report dokumentieren die
studentischen Konstrukteure ihre konstruktiven Lösungen
und deren Vorteile. Acht Seiten Text und technische Zeichnungen sollen die Juroren von den Konstruktionen und ihren
Vorzügen für die Zielgruppe des nicht-professionellen Wochenendrennfahrers überzeugen. Beim Wettbewerb werden die Konstruktionen von den Juroren am Fahrzeug begutachtet und mit den Studenten diskutiert. Die Bewertung
erfolgt anhand des Design Reports, der Antworten in der
Diskussion und der Begutachtung des Fahrzeugs.
Cost Analysis: Costs are an important factor in building a
race car. Hence, the students have to deal with cost estimations, different manufacturing techniques and processes
in the Cost Event. The discipline consists of a written report
(the cost report) and a discussion with the judges around
the manufactured prototype. The cost report contains a list
of all components of the car: from wheels to process labour
costs for special tooling. The judging comprises the organisation of the cost report, the comprehension of manufacturing processes and the price as well as the performance of
a real case task for reducing costs.
Business Plan Presentation: The teams present their business plans of the built prototype to an assumed manufacturer represented by the judges. The goal is to convince the
judges that their car meets the demands of the target group
of the non-professional weekend autocross driver best and
that it can be produced and marketed profitably. Usually, one
or two members of the team give a presentation for ten minutes and are questioned by the judges for an additional five
minutes. Content, structure, organisation and performance
of the talk are judged as well as the answers the students
give.
At the competition Design and Cost Judges take a closer look at the prototype and discuss the solutions
with the students. Both events are based on written reports. However, the Business Plan is presented and
closes with questions from the judges.
Beim Wettbewerb betrachten die Design und die Cost Juroren die Prototypen genau und diskutieren die
Lösungen mit den Studenten. Beide Events basieren auf schriftlichen Berichten. Dagegen wird bei der Businessplan Prensentation der Geschäftsplan präsentiert und endet mit Fragen der Juroren.
Cost Analysis: Die Kosten sind für den Bau eines Rennwagens ein entscheidender Faktor. Beim Cost Event beschäftigen sich die Studenten mit Kalkulation, Fertigungstechniken
und -prozessen. Die Disziplin besteht aus einem schriftlichen
Bericht (dem Cost Report) und einer Diskussion mit den
Juroren am gebauten Prototypen. Der Cost Report enthält
eine Auflistung aller Teile: vom Reifen bis zu den Herstellungskosten für Spezialwerkzeuge. Bewertet wird die Aufbereitung des Cost Reports, das Verstehen von Fertigungsverfahren zur Kostenoptimierung, der Preis sowie die Lösung
einer Real Case Aufgabe zur Kostenreduktion.
Business Plan Presentation: Bei der Business Plan Presentation stellen die Teams einer fiktiven Herstellerfirma,
vertreten durch die Juroren, ihren Geschäftsplan für den
gebauten Prototypen vor. Mit diesem wollen sie die Juroren
davon überzeugen, dass ihr Fahrzeug am besten die Anforderungen der Zielgruppe, des nicht-professionellen Wochenendrennfahrers, erfüllt und gewinnbringend produziert
sowie vermarktet werden kann. Die Präsentation der Teams
dauert zehn Minuten, gefolgt von einer fünfminütigen Frageund Diskussionsrunde mit den Juroren. Bewertet werden
Inhalt, Aufbau, Aufbereitung und Darbietung des Vortrags
sowie die Antworten des Teams auf Fragen.

Dynamische Disziplinen
Dynamic disciplines
During the dynamic disciplines the cars have to prove the
performance capabilities of the students’ design on the race
track. The disciplines demand different qualities of the car.
In each discipline two drivers have two runs (except in the
Endurance Event). The best run of the four will be counted
as the optimum the car can achieve.
Acceleration: The race cars prove their accelerating abilities
over a distance of 75 meters from a standing start. The
fastest cars cover the distance in less than 4 seconds and
achieve a maximum velocity of more than 100km/h.
Skid Pad: The student-built cars drive on a course in the shape of an eight. Two consecutive laps on each circle are driven, with the second lap being timed. The cars demonstrate
the steady-state lateral acceleration they can generate. In
2012 the Skid Pad will be again carried out on a continuously watered surface (“Wet Pad”) to make sure the conditions
are constant for all teams.
Autocross: The cars drive on a course of perhaps one kilometre through straights and turns, chicanes and slaloms.
The lap time serves as an indicator for driving dynamics and
handling qualities. The results of the Autocross discipline
also determine the starting order in the Endurance.
Endurance: Providing the highest number of points, the
Endurance is the main discipline. Over the course of 22 kilometres the cars have to prove their durability under longterm conditions. Acceleration, speed, handling, dynamics,
fuel efficiency and most importantly the reliability of the cars
are put to their limits. The Endurance also demands handling
skills of the driver as the course can only be walked in preparation. Up to four cars are allowed on the track at the same
time. Each team has only one attempt, the drivers change
after 11 kilometres. Teams more than one third slower than
the fastest team will just receive the minimum number of
points.
Fuel / Energy Efficiency: During the Endurance the fuel consumption (FSC vehicles) / energy consumption (FSE vehicles)
is measured. The points’ calculation does not only evaluate
fuel / energy consumption, but puts it in relation to speed.

In den dynamischen Disziplinen müssen die studentischen
Konstruktionen ihre Praxistauglichkeit auf der Rennstrecke
unter Beweis stellen. Mit jeder Disziplin werden unterschiedliche Eigenschaften des Autos getestet. Grundsätzlich starten zwei Fahrer mit je zwei Versuchen (außer im EnduranceRennen). Gewertet wird der jeweils beste Versuch als das
Optimum, welches das Fahrzeug erzielen kann.
Acceleration: Auf einer 75 Meter langen Geraden müssen
die Rennwagen beweisen, wie schnell sie aus dem Stand
beschleunigen können. Die Besten bewältigen die Strecke in
einer Zeit von unter vier Sekunden und erreichen dabei eine
maximale Geschwindigkeit von mehr als 100km/h.
Skid Pad: Die selbstgebauten Rennwagen durchfahren einen
Parcours in Form einer Acht. Jeder Kreisring wird zweimal
nacheinander umrundet. Gemessen wird jeweils die zweite Runde. Die Rundenzeit zeigt, welche statische Querbeschleunigung das Fahrzeug erreichen kann. In diesem Jahr
wird bei der FSG das Skid Pad zum zweiten Mal auf einer
kontinuierlich bewässerten Oberfläche gefahren („Wet Pad“),
um sicherzustellen, dass die Bedingungen für alle Teams
gleich sind.
Autocross: Über eine etwa 1 Kilometer lange Runde fahren
die Rennwagen durch Geraden, Kurven und Schikanen. Eine
schnelle Rundenzeit ist sowohl ein Indikator für eine gute
Fahrdynamik als auch für gute Handling- und Beschleunigungseigenschaften. Die Platzierung im Autocross entscheidet zudem über die Startreihenfolge in der Endurance-Disziplin.
Endurance: Das Endurance-Rennen stellt mit der höchsten
erreichbaren Punktzahl die Hauptdisziplin dar. Über eine
Renndistanz von 22 Kilometern muss sich die Gesamtkonstruktion unter Dauerbelastung beweisen. Hier sind alle
Eigenschaften von der Beschleunigung bis hin zu Handling
und Fahrdynamik gefragt. Das Endurance-Rennen erfordert
ebenfalls besonderes Renngeschick des Fahrers, da die
Strecke als Vorbereitung nur abgeschritten werden darf.
Während des Rennens sind bis zu vier Fahrzeuge gleichzeitig
auf der Strecke. Jedes Team hat einen einzigen Versuch, die
Fahrer wechseln nach 11 Kilometern. Die Teams erhalten
nur dann Punkte, wenn sie höchstens ein Drittel langsamer
waren als das schnellste Team.
Fuel / Energy Efficiency: Während des Endurance-Rennens
wird der Kraftstoffverbrauch (FSC Fahrzeuge) / Energieverbrauch (FSE Fahrzeuge) gemessen. Bei der Berechnung der
erreichten Punkte, zählt nicht einfach der Verbrauch, sondern vielmehr der Verbrauch in Relation zur Geschwindigkeit.
Something is on the track that should not be there. Be prepared for evasive maneuvers to
avoid debris or liquids!
Es ist etwas Unerwartetes auf der Strecke. Sei bereit Flüssigkeiten oder Bruchstücken auszuweichen!
Something has happened beyond the flag station. No passing unless directed by the track
marshals. Stationary: Danger! Slow down, be prepared to take evasive action. Waved: Great
Danger! Slow down, evasive action is most likely required, be prepared to stop.
Etwas ist jenseits der Flagge passiert.Fahr nicht vorbei ohne Anweisung der Streckenposten.
Feststehend: Gefahr! Fahr langsam, sei bereit zum Ausweichen. Geschwenkt: Große Gefahr!
Fahr langsam, Ausweichen wird erforderlich sein. Sei bereit anzuhalten.
There is a slow moving vehicle on the course. Be prepared to approach it at a cautious rate.
Es ist ein langsames Fahrzeug auf der Strecke. Nähere dich vorsichtig an.

FSG – five days of tinkering, technology and teamwork! We
at Audi are awaiting the event just as eagerly as the participating teams. After all, the pit lanes and race track are the
perfect places to meet dedicated students and get to know
them where our heart beats – working on cars. What we
share is a love of technology – of “Vorsprung durch Technik”.
At the same time, all the participants have exactly what we
are looking for in future employees: specialist knowledge, innovative and creative solutions coupled with good teamwork
and communication skills. And those who are able to put our
brand values of sportiness, progressiveness and sophistication onto the race track are a good match for Audi as well.
We offer tomorrow’s engineers the chance to tackle exciting
tasks in innovative areas. We look forward to an exciting
event and wish all the teams every success!
FSG – fünf Tage Tüfteln, Technik und Teamwork. Wir bei Audi
fiebern dem Event mindestens genauso aufgeregt entgegen, wie die teilnehmenden Teams. In der Boxengasse und
auf der Rennstrecke treffen wir engagierte Studenten und
lernen sie dort kennen, wo auch unser Herz schlägt: Beim
Tüfteln am Automobil. Die Begeisterung für Technik – für
„Vorsprung durch Technik“ – ist das, was uns dabei verbindet. Gleichzeitig bringen die Teams all das mit, was wir uns
von unseren zukünftigen Mitarbeitern wünschen: Fachliches
Wissen, innovative und kreative Lösungen, aber auch Teamund Kommunikationsfähigkeit. Und wer es schafft, unsere
Markenwerte Sportlichkeit, Progressivität und Hochwertigkeit auf die Rennstrecke zu bringen, der passt auch gut zu
Audi. Bei uns warten auf die Ingenieure von morgen spannende Aufgaben an innovativen Themen. Wir freuen uns auf
das Event und wünschen den Teams viel Erfolg!

Hans-Peter Beringer
Vice President, Head of Business Management Automotive, BASF SE
For BASF it´s a pleasure to support “Formula Student Germany”, because we want to share our passion for automotive technology! Our engineering plastics are widely used in
the automotive industry for example in vehicles range from
bodywork and chassis to interior trim and engine components. Using plastics instead of other materials reduces vehicle weight and so helps to conserve energy and reduce
emissions.
As a global chemical company BASF particularly focuses on
science education, realizing that today’s students will be the
thinkers, innovators, discoverers and leaders of the future.
We consider “Formula Student Germany” to be a great opportunity to get in contact with ambitious and well-educated
young people.
Good luck to all teams for this extraordinary competition!
Wir freuen uns „Formula Student Germany“ zu unterstützen
- und so unsere Begeisterung für Technologie rund um das
Automobil zu teilen! Die BASF bietet eine Vielzahl von Kunststofflösungen für die Automobilindustrie an, angefangen
beim Karosseriebau, über das Fahrwerk bis hin zu Innenausstattung und Motoranbauteilen. Der Einsatz von Kunststoffen reduziert das Fahrzeuggewicht und trägt auf diese
Weise zur Ressourcenschonung bei.
Als ein globales Unternehmen der Chemieindustrie schätzen wir die universitäre Forschung, insbesondere die Ingenieurswissenschaften. Hier sehen wir die Denker, Erfinder und
Führungspersönlichkeiten der Zukunft. „Formula Student
Germany“ bietet uns die Möglichkeit, mit ambitionierten und
gut ausgebildeten Nachwuchskräften in Kontakt zu kommen.
Wir wünschen allen Teilnehmern viel Glück in diesem außergewöhnlichen Wettbewerb!

Head of HR Marketing International and Recruiting, BMW Group
It is with great pleasure that the BMW Group supports initiatives such as Formula Student which combine acquired
theory with practical experience in an exemplary manner.
The acquisition of skills and key expertise such as interdisciplinary thinking, problem-solving and business knowledge is
realized in an exemplary fashion in this competition.
We are only too familiar with these requirements of teams
from our own company. We therefore welcome applications
from qualified Formula Student participants both from Germany and abroad for practical internships as well as job
vacancies. We are looking for enthusiastic young engineers
in various departments such as research and development
who, like our own staff, enjoy being involved in innovative
projects at the very highest level.
Mit großer Freude unterstützt die BMW Group die Formula
Student Initiative, da sie Studenten auf einzigartige Weise die
Möglichkeit gibt, theoretisches Wissen mit gelebter Praxis
zu verbinden. Hier, in der praktischen Anwendung, werden
mit Begeisterung Fähigkeiten und Schlüsselkompetenzen
wie z.B. fächerübergreifendes Denken, Problemlösefähigkeit
oder wirtschaftliche Kenntnisse erlernt und erweitert.
Diese Anforderungen an Teams kennen wir in der BMW
Group nur zu gut. Daher freuen wir uns, wenn sich qualifizierte Teilnehmer aus dem In- und Ausland bei uns für Praxiseinsätze oder auf offene Stellen bewerben. Verschiedene
Bereiche wie z. B. Die Forschung und Entwicklung suchen
begeisterte Nachwuchsingenieure, die genauso wie unsere
Mitarbeiter Spaß daran haben, auf höchstem Niveau an innovativen Themen mitzuwirken.

planning, and selling points. That’s why we’re glad to support
talented young people who are innovative and committed,
and who work together in a team to master interdisciplinary
challenges.

Clemens Klinke
Chairman of the board of managing directors, DEKRA Automobil GmbH;
Member of the board, DEKRA SE
DEKRA supports Formula Student Germany from the outset as technical partner. Our engineers have well grounded
know how and expertise in professional motor racing, for
example as technical supervisors in the German Touring Car
Masters (DTM) championship. In 2012 again the structure
of all vehicles has been proven at the DEKRA Technology
Centre regarding safety in rollover, side and frontal impacts.
Approx. two dozen teams brought the frontal crash attenuators of their bolides for testing directly to the DEKRA Technology Center. This way Formula Student provides the students
the opportunity to make their first personal contacts with
DEKRA.
As Europe’s largest organisation of technical experts, DEKRA is constantly on the lookout for highly motivated employees who have a high level of knowledge, teamwork skills
and initiative - and, as we say in Germany, “who have petrol
in the veins”.
DEKRA unterstützt die Formula Student Germany seit ihrem Beginn als technischer Partner. Unsere Ingenieure verfügen über umfangreiches Know-how und Erfahrungen im
professionellen Rennsport, unter anderem als Technische
Kommissare der Deutschen Tourenwagen Masters (DTM).
Das DEKRA Technology Center hat auch im Jahr 2012 alle
Fahrzeugstrukturen im Hinblick auf die Sicherheit beim Fahrzeugüberschlag, beim Seitenanprall und beim Frontalanprall
überprüft. Rund zwei Dutzend Teams ließen die energieabsorbierenden Frontalaufprallstrukturen ihrer Boliden direkt
im DEKRA Technology Center testen. So bietet die FSG den
Studierenden die Möglichkeit, erste persönliche Kontakte zu
DEKRA zu knüpfen.
Als Europas größte Sachverständigen-Organisation ist DEKRA ständig auf der Suche nach motivierten Mitarbeitern
mit hohem Wissensstand, Teamfähigkeit und Eigeninitiative,
die “Benzin im Blut” haben.

demonstrieren, wie sie in Teamarbeit neue Lösungen entwickeln – und dabei ihr technisches Fachwissen und betriebswirtschaftliches Know-how unter Beweis stellen.
Wenn es um neue technische Lösungsansätze geht, sollten
auch immer Energieeffizienz und Ressourcenschonung eine
zentrale Rolle spielen. HARTING wird deshalb einen Preis an
das Team verleihen, das bei der Formula Student Electric
den geringsten Energieverbrauch realisiert.

VDI-Society Automotive and Traffic Systems Technologies, VDI e.V.
If Formula Student didn’t exist it ought to be invented on the
spot. It epitomizes everything that makes the engineering
profession so exhilarating: the cool, scientific pursuit of the
optimum result, as measured against the irrefutable, objective scale of physical measurement, combined with the
highly emotional values of imagination and inventiveness and
the focused and frantic co-operation within a team of likeminded companions, who together will face the heat of the
competition, and share the elation of success, or the burden
of failure, in solidarity.
VDI with its Society for Vehicle and Transport Technology
have established Formula Student Germany in its beginning,
and continue as its spiritual sponsors, because it provides
engineering students with an opportunity to live their passion, and to strive for excellence in a very early stage of their
careers.
Wenn es die Formula Student nicht gäbe, man müsste sie
auf der Stelle erfinden. Sie bringt auf den Punkt, was den Ingenieurberuf so begeisternd macht: das kühle, wissenschaftliche Streben nach optimalen Ergebnissen, gemessen am
unwiderleglichen, objektiven Maßstab physikalischer Größen,
gepaart mit den hochemotionalen Werten der Phantasie,
des Einfallsreichtums und der konzentrierten Zusammenarbeit in einem Team aus Gleichgesinnten, in dem auch hoher
Druck gemeinsam ausgehalten und Erfolg wie Misserfolg zusammen errungen und ertragen werden.
Der VDI mit seiner Fachgesellschaft für Fahrzeug- und Verkehrstechnik hat die Formula Student Germany etabliert und
ist ihr ideeller Träger, weil sie dem Nachwuchs im Ingenieurberuf eine Chance gibt, diese Begeisterung zu leben und
schon früh in der eigenen Laufbahn nach Exzellenz zu streben.

Volkswagen is once again at the Formula Student Event at
the Hockenheimring to support and to look for an open dialogue with young talents.
Alongside their expert knowledge, these aspiring engineers
have innovative power and creativity as well as team and
communication skills, which is exactly what is needed for a
career and for working successfully in our company.
We are therefore happy to support highly-motivated young
engineers with our expert knowledge, to inform them about
the varied and individual opportunities to start a career in
our company and to encourage their enthusiasm for Volkswagen as an attractive employer.
And we always have the same common denominator: The
enthusiasm for „Das Auto“.
Volkswagen ist wieder mit auf dem Formula Student Event
am Hockenheimring dabei, um direkt vor Ort junge Talente
zu fördern und mit ihnen in den Dialog zu treten.
Neben fachlichem Wissen bringen diese angehenden Ingenieurinnen und Ingenieure auch Innovationskraft und Kreativität sowie Team- und Kommunikationsfähigkeit mit – genau
das, was für die erfolgreiche Arbeit und eine Karriere in unserem Unternehmen wichtig ist.
Daher freuen wir uns, hochmotivierte Nachwuchsingenieure
durch unser Expertenwissen zu unterstützen, sie über unsere vielfältigen und individuellen Einstiegsmöglichkeiten zu
informieren und für den attraktiven Arbeitgeber Volkswagen
zu begeistern. Einen gemeinsamen Nenner finden wir nämlich immer: Die Begeisterung für Das Auto.
We wish all teams a successful and exciting competition!
Wir wünschen allen Teams einen erfolgreichen und spannenden Wettbewerb!

As a leading worldwide automotive supplier for Driveline
and Chassis Technology, ZF is permanently looking for highly
qualified, creative and motivated junior staff. Team players
with organizational skills as well as well-founded knowledge
in project management and cost optimization are just what
we need.
As a result of the fact that we find exactly such key qualifications with the Formula students, we have been committed to such undertakings for years. Moreover, we perceive
this commitment as an important contribution to raising the
education quality as well as practice-orientation at the universities.
FSG makes it possible to link the engineer training and qualification with motorsports - a highly emotional and fascinating topic. I am personally convinced that the entire business
site is profiting from such projects, but, primarily us, the ZF
Group, as a technology-oriented company.
ZF als ein weltweit führender Automobilzulieferkonzern in der
Antriebs- und Fahrwerktechnik ist permanent auf der Suche
nach qualifizierten, kreativen und motivierten Nachwuchskräften. Gefragt sind Schlüsselkompetenzen wie Teamfähigkeit, Organisationstalent und solide Kenntnisse in Projektmanagement und Kostenoptimierung.
Da wir genau diese Schlüsselqualifikationen bei den Formula

FSG Around the World
Einmal China und zurück
In October 2011, the Formula Student team, “TUfast”, from
the Technische Universtität München, visited the Chinese
Formula Student competition in China. They took part in the
country’s second ever Formula Student competition, as the
first ever international team, and succeeded in achieving second place overall. The Beijing Institute of Technology won.
The Munich team were hosted in China by their partner university, Shanghai Tongji University. On arrival, both teams
worked together on making the final adjustments to their
race cars and completing their last test kilometres. Through
this, both teams were able to gain and exchange experience
in technical as well as cultural aspects. “The collaboration of
the two teams and the participation of the German team in
the Chinese competition furthermore supports the wish /
idea of Formula Student (FS) World Council to globally unify
the Formula Student rules”, announced Tim Hannig, FSG
Chairman, enthusiastically about the exchange.
This year, Chinese teams have been given the chance to
take part in a European competition. The winning team from
FS China, the University of Beijing IT and Munich’s partner
university, Shanghai Tongji, will take part in this year’s FS
Germany. The participation will be a new experience and a
big challenge for both the teams. At the Chinese event at
the Shanghai International Circuit only 36 teams were allowed to participate, all of which were from the same country
(except the team from Munich). The two Chinese teams will
now have to compete against 76 top teams from all over
the world. The attendance at the competition will show the
similarities and differences between the technical standards
of the international teams and competitions.
Through the Chinese teams’ visit, Formula Student Germany
is approaching its aim of further networking and internationalization of all FS competitions, step by step. For this
purpose, the Formula Student World Council will once again
meet during the event. The FS World Council consists of representatives of the different Formula Student competitions
from around the world. They aim to unify the rules of all
events step by step.

Additionally to the Chinese teams, a Chinese delegation will
visit the event at the Hockenheimring. They will observe the
German competition and take part in the discussions of the
World Council. Furthermore, in particular, the delegation will
observe Formula Student Electric. Up to now, such an event
does not exist in China. Its focus will lie in particular on logistics, organisation and implementation of the competition.
The state of the art technology delivered by the teams and
their performances are also of great interest for the Chinese
delegation. The goal one day is to have FS China Electric. The
organisers of Formula Student Germany are looking forward
to this day.

Chinese event in October 2011.

München gemeinsam mit Tim Hannig (FSG Chairman) und Ludwig Vollrath (FSG Academy) beim
chinesischen Event im Oktober 2011.
Auf Einladung der chinesischen Formula Student fuhr das
Formula Student Team „TUfast“ der Technischen Universität
München im Oktober 2011 nach China. Dort nahmen sie
am zweiten chinesischen Formula Student Wettbewerb teil.
Das Besondere daran war, dass sie als erstes internationales Team gegen die ausschließlich chinesische Konkurrenz
antraten. „TUfast“ belegte hinter dem Beijing Institute of
Technology den zweiten Platz.
Die Münchner planten die Reise mit ihrer Partneruniversität, der Shanghai Tongji University. Vor Ort arbeiteten beide
Teams gemeinsam an ihren Rennboliden. Auf diese Weise
konnten beide Seiten sowohl in technischer als auch kultureller Hinsicht neue Erfahrungen sammeln und austauschen.
„Die Zusammenarbeit der Teams und die Teilnahme des
deutschen Teams am chinesischen Wettbewerb unterstützen zusätzlich den Wunsch / die Idee des Formula Student
(FS) World Councils, die Formula Student-Regeln global zu
vereinheitlichen“, zeigt sich Tim Hannig, Chairman der FSG,
über den Austausch begeistert.
Um chinesischen Teams ebenfalls die Chance zu geben einen
europäischen Wettbewerb kennenzulernen, kommen in diesem Jahr die Gewinneruniversität Beijing IT und die Münchner Partneruniversität Shanghai Tongji zum deutschen Wettbewerb. Auch für diese beiden Teams wird der Event eine
neue Erfahrung und große Herausforderung werden. Während am chinesischen Wettbewerb auf dem Shanghai International Circuit nur 36 Teams teilnehmen durften und diese
bis auf das Münchner Team aus dem gleichen Land kamen,
müssen sich die beiden Teams nun mit 76 Top Teams aus
der ganzen Welt messen. Die Teilnahme am Event wird zeigen, in wieweit sich die technischen Standards der internationalen Teams und die Wettbewerbe auf der ganzen Welt ähneln und wo es nach wie vor gravierende Unterschiede gibt.
Mit dem Besuch der chinesischen Teams kommt die Formula Student Germany ihrem Ziel der weiteren Vernetzung
und Internationalisierung aller FS Wettbewerbe einen Schritt
näher. Zu diesem Zweck wird sich während des Events ebenfalls wieder das Formula Student World Council treffen. Es
handelt sich dabei um Vertreter der unterschiedlichen Formula Student Wettbewerbe der ganzen Welt, die das Ziel
verfolgen die Regeln der einzelnen Events Schritt für Schritt
zu vereinheitlichen.
Zusätzlich zu den chinesischen Teams kommt eine chinesische Delegation zum Hockenheimring. Diese wird sich
den deutschen Wettbewerb anschauen sowie an den Gesprächen des World Councils teilnehmen. Außerdem wird
sie sich insbesondere die Formula Student Electric anschauen. Einen solchen Event gibt es in China bisher noch nicht.
Ihr Augenmerk wird hier vor allem auf Logistik, Aufbau und
Umsetzung des Wettbewerbs liegen. Auch der technische
Stand der Teams und ihre Performance sind für die chinesische Delegation von großem Interesse. Und vielleicht findet
in China demnächst ebenfalls ein FS Electric Event statt. Die
Organisatoren der Formula Student Germany würden sich
sehr freuen und bleiben gespannt.

The Internationalisation of the Rules
Die Internationalisierung des Regelwerks
A look back at the year 1979 the rules of the first Formula
SAE competition consisted of 11 pages and could easily put
in one’s trouser pocket when folded. Nearly 30 years later,
the rules for Formula Student Germany amount to 130 pages. Luckily, today, many students have the rules on their
smartphones or tablet PC’s; an advantage for the luggage
capacity of the many international teams. The great extension of the rules in particular, reflects the competitions development in different aspects, such as, engineering, safety,
competition growth and new car classes (as FS Electric).
There are currently Formula Student competitions all over
the world. Though all of them are based on the original
FSAE, every event has its own characteristics and therefore
its own rules. This creates difficulties for teams who want
to participate in more than one Formula Student event as it
means they have to adjust their cars to fit the rules of the
particular competitions instead of, like in Formula 1, being
able to spend their time and energy on optimizing their cars
to give them the best chances at the different competitions.
To find the reasons behind the different sets of rules and to
learn about what the Formula Student organizers are doing
to counteract against this development, we decided to talk
to some members of the Rules Committee.
An interview with Tobias Michaels (EC, FS Electric), Lukas
Folie (EC, FS Electric) and Frank Röske (Board, Rules)
Do you have the rules already on your tablet PC or smartphone or do you still walk around with a printed version in
your trouser pocket (If it fits in there)?
Michaels: I have it in digital form.
Folie: Me too.
Röske: Until last year I always had a printed version in my
pocket during the whole event. But this year I exchanged it
against a version on my tablet PC.
The Formula Student and Formula SAE series grew very
fast in the last years. By now there are competitions in
Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia.
Which challenges arise from this development for the
composition of rules?
Röske: First of all, we are very happy that so many students
are engaged in teams and have the possibility to take part in
competitions all over the world. But with the growing number of competitions we as Rules Committee are confronted
with new challenges.
Ein Blick zurück in das Jahr 1979 zeigt das Reglement des
ersten Formula SAE Wettbewerbs: es bestand aus 11 Seiten und konnte gefaltet bequem in der Hosentasche getragen werden. Knapp 30 Jahre später ist das Regelwerk für
die Teilnahme an der Formula Student Germany über 130
Seiten stark. Glücklicherweise haben viele Studenten das Reglement inzwischen auf Ihrem Tablet oder Smartphone. Dies
ist insbesondere für die vielen internationalen Teams ein
nicht zu unterschätzender Vorteil für Ihre Anreise. Die starke Erweiterung des Regelwerks zeigt vor allem, dass sich die
Wettbewerbe weiterentwickelt haben. Diese Entwicklung hat
in vielen verschiedenen Bereichen stattgefunden: Technik,
Sicherheit, Wettbewerbsausbau, neue Fahrzeugklassen (wie
die FS Electric).
Mittlerweile gibt es auf der ganzen Welt Formula Student
Wettbewerbe. Zwar basieren alle auf der ursprünglichen
FSAE, dennoch hat jeder Event seine eigenen Besonderheiten. Aus diesem Grund gibt es für jeden Wettbewerb ein eigenes Reglement. Dies birgt für die Teams Schwierigkeiten,
die an mehreren Formula Student Events teilnehmen wollen.
Für jeden Wettbewerb müssen sie sich auf ein anderes Reglement einstellen. Im Gegensatz zur Formel 1 ist jedoch
meist keine technische Weiterentwicklung notwendig.
Um herauszufinden warum es bei den verschiedenen Wettbewerben unterschiedliche Regelwerke gibt und was die Formula Student Organisatoren sich vorgenommen haben, um
dieser Entwicklung entgegenzuwirken, haben wir die Möglichkeit genutzt mit Mitgliedern des Rules Committee zu sprechen.
Ein Interview mit Tobias Michaels (EC, FS Electric), Lukas
Folie (EC, FS Electric) und Frank Röske (Board, Rules)
Haben Sie das Reglement schon auf Ihrem Tablet oder
Smartphone oder noch ausgedruckt und in der Hosentasche? (Wenn es da überhaupt rein passt).
Michaels: Ich habe es digital dabei.
Folie: Bei mir ist es auch so.
Röske: Bis letztes Jahr habe ich immer eine gedruckte Version den ganzen Wettbewerb in der Tasche gehabt, aber in
diesem Jahr habe ich es gegen eine Version auf meinem
Tablet getauscht.
Die Formula Student und Formula SAE Serie ist in den
letzten Jahren schnell gewachsen. Inzwischen gibt es
Wettbewerbe in Europa, Nord- und Südamerika, Asien
und Australien. Welche Herausforderungen ergeben sich
daraus für die Gestaltung des Reglements?
What challenges? Can you give us some examples?
Röske: As a consequence of more and more new events
popping up, also more and more new rules were developed.
Every competition organization has independently worked on
the rules, over the last few years. The problem for the teams

is that these rules are not valid
at all competitions.
Why did so many new rules
accrue and what is the purpose of this?
Röske: We want to give the
students as much freedom as
possible for the design of their
cars, but we have to ensure
the safety of the students, audience and volunteers. This is
only possible when the cars
are designed and built in a safe
way. For this purpose, we create terms of references in form
of rules. These are influenced
by local circumstances, instructions and infrastructure. Therefore it comes to differences 2010 traf sich im Rahmen der Formula Student Germany das World Council zum ersten Mal.

Röske: The development of the rules takes part in the Rules Committee. Here, every event has one seat. Usually the
competitions of the actual year are analyzed on the perspective of safety. But last year the focus was on the unifying
of the rules. For this purpose, all differences of rules systems were examined. In many discussions the reasons were
argued and possibilities were searched for to find a shared
solution.
When every competition has its own seat, who is sitting
there when so many themes are discussed?
Röske: Not every theme is discussed in detail in the Rules
Committee. So-called sub committees are formed, in which
particular topics are discussed by experts.
For this work you surely have to meet and discuss very often. How do we have to imagine such discussion rounds?
Do you monthly meet in the different countries?
Michaels (smiles): That would be great and mean we would
get to travel a lot. But unfortunately it does not work like this
because it would cost too much travelling time and money.
You have to consider that we are just volunteers. But we try
to communicate weekly as efficiently as possible via telephone, video conferences and the internet.
allem Zeit, die den Studenten dann für Ihr Studium fehlt.
Michaels: Ergänzend dazu gibt es auch auf Seiten der Organisatoren zusätzlichen Aufwand. So müssen wir zum Beispiel
die Nachweise für die Sicherheit der Fahrzeuge für jeden
Wettbewerb einzeln prüfen, obwohl wir hier beim Reglement
eine Gleichheit von über 95 Prozent haben.
Und diesem Trend wollen sie nun entgegenwirken. 2010
hat im Rahmen der Formula Student Germany erstmals
das World Council getagt. Das ist eine Gruppe, die aus
Vertretern der verschiedenen Formula Student Wettbewerbe besteht. Wie hat sich das auf die Entwicklung des
Reglements ausgewirkt?
Röske: Das World Council war der Auftakt für eine stärkere Zusammenarbeit der einzelnen Wettbewerbe weltweit.
Hierbei ging es nicht nur um die Regelwerke der einzelnen
Events, sondern viel mehr darum, in allen Bereichen der
Wettbewerbsorganisation zusammenzuarbeiten. Das Rules
Committee wurde vom World Council mit der Vereinheitlichung der Regelwerke bis spätestens in 2013 beauftragt.
2013 wird es ein einheitliches Regelbuch für geben, das den
Teams ermöglicht ohne Änderungen am Fahrzeug bei jedem
Event weltweit teilzunehmen.
Folie: Das gilt nicht nur für die Fahrzeuge mit Verbrennungsantrieb, sondern auch für die mit Elektromotor. Ab 2013
wird es also nur noch ein Reglement für alle Wettbewerbe
geben.
Das ist doch eine sehr positive Entwicklung. Aber wie haben Sie es geschafft, sich mit so vielen Wettbewerben
abzustimmen und ein Reglement zu entwickeln?
Röske: Die Entwicklung des Reglements findet im Rules
Committee statt. Hier hat jeder Event einen Sitz. In der Regel, werden die Wettbewerbe des aktuellen Jahres darauf
hin analysiert, ob das Regelwerk aus dem Blickwinkel der
Sicherheit angepasst werden muss. Im letzten Jahr lag der
Fokus jedoch auf der Vereinheitlichung des Reglements.
Hierfür wurden alle Regelwerke genau auf Ihre Unterschiede
hin untersucht. In vielen Gesprächen wurden die Gründe erörtert und Möglichkeiten gesucht, eine gemeinsame Lösung
zu finden.
Modern technique is especially advantageous for the international participants, because instead of bringing
the extensive rules in printed form to the event they today easily use the laptop.
Die moderne Technik ist vor allem für die internationalen Teilnehmer von Vorteil, da sie das umfassende
Regelwerk nicht mehr ausgedruckt mit zum Event bringen müssen, sondern ganz einfach auf ihrem Laptop.
Folie: But without any meeting it does not work. Last year
when we began to develop the FS Electric rules together with
other competitions there were many points to discuss in the
beginning. This was why we met during FSE at the Hockenheimring with our colleagues from Great Britain and were
able to discuss many topics fast and efficiently.
Can you say that the Formula Student Electric was a forcing power considering the development of the rules for
cars with electrical drive systems?
Michaels and Folie together: Yes, definitely.
Folie: When we began in 2009 with working on rules for the
Formula Student Electric this was all very new for us. The
experiences from 2010 and 2011 were integrated into the
Wenn jeder Wettbewerb nur einen Sitz hat, wen entsenden sie dann bei so vielen unterschiedlichen Themen?
Röske: Es ist nicht so, dass im Rules Committee alle Themen im Detail diskutiert werden. Hier werden sogenannte
Sub-Committees gebildet, in denen dann für das jeweilige
Thema Experten arbeiten.
Diese Arbeit ist doch sicherlich mit vielen Treffen und Diskussionen verbunden. Wie müssen wir uns diese Abstimmungsrunden vorstellen? Treffen sie sich monatlich in den
teilnehmenden Nationen?
Michaels (grinst): Das wäre sicherlich spannend, da würden
wir viel herumkommen. Aber ganz so ist es nicht, da die
Reisezeiten sowie die Kosten dies nicht zulassen. Immerhin
sind wir alle Ehrenamtliche. Wir versuchen uns wöchentlich
so effizient wie möglich über Telefonkonferenzen, Videokonferenzen und natürlich alle Möglichkeiten die das Internet
bietet abzustimmen.

development of the rules. We were the first competition with
a complete rules system. Last year, the events in Austria,
Spain and Italy adopted our rules.
Michaels: In the rules for 2013, you can find FS Electric.
But we also adopted many points from our colleagues from
Great Britain. The discussions have been ongoing for over
a year which is the reason why the rules for the different
competitions for electrical cars in Europe are already almost
identical for the 2012 competition.
What were the biggest differences in the rules for cars
with electrical drive trains?
Folie: To count all differences would take too much time,
but obvious examples are the power limitation as well as the
maximal allowed electric voltage. Here we had to work hard
to convince the others.
Thank you very much for these interesting insights. But let
us ask one last question: How will it go on?
Michaels: First of all we hope for an exciting Formula Student Germany 2012. But when we look into the future, at
the end of May the draft for the new rules 2013 were released. At the moment we are working at the final version.
Röske: What is really new is that from 2013 on, the rules
will be valid also for 2014. From then on we will work on
the rules in a two-year rhythm. In this way the teams can
start in a new season more relaxed and especially optimize
everything from the former season.
Well that sounds really good for the teams. So we will see
how it works for them with the new rules system in 2013.
Thank you very much for the interview.

Frank Röske (third from left) in conversation with Lukas Folie (first from left).
Folie: Aber ganz ohne Treffen geht es dann doch nicht. Als
wir im letzten Jahr damit begonnen haben, das Reglement
für die FS Electric mit den anderen Wettbewerben weiterzuentwickeln, gab es zu Beginn viele Diskussionspunkte. Im
Rahmen der FSE haben wir uns jedoch am Hockenheimring
mit den Kollegen aus Großbritannien und den USA getroffen
und konnten so viele Themen, die wir lange und zum Teil
intensiv diskutiert haben, schnell klären.
Kann man sagen, dass die Formula Student Germany bei
der Erstellung des Regelwerks für die Fahrzeuge mit Elektroantrieb eine treibende Kraft ist?
Michaels und Folie gemeinsam: Ja, definitiv.
Folie: Als wir 2009 mit der Erarbeitung des Regelwerks für
die Formula Student Electric begannen, betraten wir in vielen
Bereichen Neuland. Die Erfahrung aus den Wettbewerben
2010 und 2011 sind in die Weiterentwicklung der Regeln
geflossen. Wir haben als erster Wettbewerb ein vollumfängliches Regelwerk erstellt. Schon im Vorjahr haben die Events
in Österreich, Spanien und Italien unser FSE Reglement übernommen.
Michaels: In vielen Bereichen des Regelwerks ab 2013 findet man das FS Electric Reglement wieder. Wir haben jedoch auch viele Punkte von unseren Kollegen in Großbritannien übernommen. Die Abstimmungen laufen schon seit mehr
als einem Jahr, sodass in Europa Regeln für die Fahrzeuge
mit Elektroantrieb schon 2012 fast identisch sind.
Was waren die größten Unterschiede der Reglements für
die Elektrofahrzeuge?
Folie: Alle Unterschiede aufzuzählen würde den Rahmen
sprengen, aber plakative Beispiele sind die Leistungsbeschränkung sowie die maximale zulässige Spannung. Hier
haben wir sehr viel Überzeugungsarbeit leisten müssen.
Vielen Dank für diese Interessanten Einblicke, aber gestatten sie uns noch eine letzte Frage. Wie wird es weitergehen?
Michaels: Zu erst einmal hoffen wir auf eine spannende Formula Student Germany 2012. Aber wenn wir vorausschauen: bereits seit Mai ist der Entwurf für die Regeln 2013 veröffentlicht. Im Moment arbeiten wir an der finalen Version.
Röske: Und was völlig neu ist, das Reglement für 2013 wird
auch 2014 gelten. Wir werden dann im zwei Jahreszyklus
die Regeln überarbeiten. Somit können die Teams immer etwas entspannter in die zweite Saison starten und vor allem
alles aus der vorhergehenden Saison optimieren.
Ja, das hört sich wirklich gut an für die Teams. Wir sind
also gespannt wie es 2013 mit dem neuen Regelwerk für
alle laufen wird. Vielen Dank für das Gespräch.

Realising the Dream
Den Traum realisieren
Many people dream of being the man in charge. Especially
for young engineers the idea of creating something their
own is very tempting. However, to realise such a dream is
more easily said than done. The organisers of Formula Student Germany (FSG) are therefore very pleased to see that
among former FSG participants a number of start-up companies have been founded.
Viele träumen davon eines Tages der eigene Chef zu sein.
Besonders für junge Ingenieure ist der Anreiz etwas Eigenes
zu schaffen groß. Doch ist es nicht leicht diesen Traum zu
realisieren. Umso mehr freuen sich die Organisatoren der
Formula Student Germany, dass unter den ehemaligen Teilnehmern einige sind, die es geschafft haben ein Start-Up zu
gründen.
One could argue that Formula Student has provided its former participants with the toolset to found their own company. As at the basis of the competition, simply put, automobile companies are founded and operated by students. To
find out to which extend Formula Student experiences really
contribute to founding one’s own company, the FSG editorial
board interviewed the founders of Roding Automobile, Georg
Käsmeier, Günther Riedl, Ferdinand Heindlmeier and Robert
Maier.
Im Prinzip kann man sagen, dass die Formula Student den
ehemaligen Teilnehmern die Grundlagen für eine solche
Gründung beigebracht hat, denn letztendlich basiert auch
der Wettbewerb auf von Studenten gegründeten und betriebenen Automobilfirmen. Um herauszufinden inwiefern die
Formula Student Erfahrungen genau dabei helfen ein eigenes
Unternehmen aufzubauen, hat die FSG Redaktion mit den
Gründern von Roding Automobile, Georg Käsmeier, Günther
Riedl, Ferdinand Heindlmeier und Robert Maier gesprochen.

Leidenschaft, Mut und Willen
The founders of Roding Automobile Georg Käsmeier, Günther Riedl, Ferdinand Heindlmeier und Robert Maier

Robert Maier
Passion, courage and drive
End of 2002, beginning of 2003, the team that will later
found the Roding Automobile GmbH get to know each other
via Formula Student. The four of them are fascinated by
cars and motorsports and share the passion “to create something of your own” and “to realise creative ideas”, looks
Günther Riedl back. In the beginning they are somewhat ridiculed in their desire to found their own Formula Student
team. Robert Maier, managing director of Roding Automobile GmbH, recalls: “At first we were not taken seriously at all.
I remember a quote of one of our professors in automotive
engineering: „It is impossible to realise such processes in
the given timeframe.“ The fact that our skills and abilities
were underestimated like this, motivated us even more to
create something of our own, something big.” And thus the
Formula Student Team of TU Munich, TUfast, was founded.
In the beginning the team hardly had any resources, “except
for the use of the university workshop and a couple of hundred Euros from our parents and grandparents. Nevertheless,
we tackled the challenge with passion, courage and drive,”
tells Robert Maier. And it paid off. Soon the team could infect more students with their fascination and the number
of team members grew. TUfast became known more and
more, and not for long drew the attention of sponsors. One
of the first sponsors was the midsize company Stangl & Co
38
Ende 2002, Anfang 2003 lernt sich das spätere Gründer
Team der Roding Automobile GmbH über die Formula Student kennen. Alle vier sind von Autos und Rennsport fasziniert und teilen die Begeisterung dafür „etwas eigenes zu
schaffen“ sowie „kreative Ideen zu verwirklichen“, blickt Günther Riedl zurück. In ihrem Wunsch ein eigenes Formula Student Team zu gründen werden sie anfangs jedoch belächelt.
Robert Maier, Geschäftsleiter der Roding Automobile GmbH,
erzählt: „Anfänglich wurden wir überhaupt nicht ernst genommen. Ich erinnere mich an einen Kommentar von einem
unserer Fahrzeugtechnik Professoren: „In der Kürze der Zeit
so umfangreiche Prozesse darzustellen ist überhaupt nicht
möglich.“ Genau diese Unterschätzung unserer Fähigkeiten,
hat uns motiviert zu beweisen, dass wir in der Lage sind
etwas Eigenes und Großes zu schaffen“. Und somit war die
Gründung des Formula Student Teams der TU München, TUfast, beschlossen.
Zu Beginn hatte das Team kaum Ressourcen, “außer der Benutzung der Werkstatt an der Uni und ein paar hundert Euro
von unseren Eltern und Großeltern. Dennoch sind wir mit
Leidenschaft, Mut und Willen an das Projekt heran gegangen“ erzählt Robert Maier. Und das hat sich gelohnt. Schon
bald konnte das Team mehr Studenten mit seiner Faszination anstecken und weitere Teammitglieder gewinnen. TUfast
wurde immer bekannter und zog auch die Aufmerksamkeit
von Sponsoren auf sich. Unter anderem die Inhaber eines
mittelständigen Unternehmens, Stangl & Co Präzisionstechnik. Diese belieferten das Team mit Fräs- und Präzisionsteilen und hier wurde die Basis gelegt für eine spätere Freundschaft, die eine wichtige Rolle bei der späteren Gründung
von Roding Automobile spielen wird.
Nach dem Studium
In dieser Konstellation wurden zwei Formula Student Fahrzeuge gebaut, dann war für drei der vier Teamgründer das
Studium zu Ende. Günther Riedl jedoch war noch ein weiteres
Präzisionstechnik. It provided the team with milled precision
parts. At this stage the basis for a friendship with the owner
of Stangl & Co was laid, which will play an important role in
the later founding of Roding Automobile.
After university
After having built two race cars, three of the four members of the TUfast founding team graduated. Only Günther
Riedl continued for one more year to build the 2006 TUfast
car. The change from university to working life did not mean
that the fascination and passion were over, to the contrary.
“The idea to build a modern light-weight road vehicle was for
us self-evident after our experiences with Formula Student”
confirms Maier. And here one thing came to the other. The
four young engineers wanted to become self-employers and
Stangl & Co was on the lookout for a product to show its
competence at the market. A light-weight sports car fit the
bill. Consequently Stangl & Co supported the founding of Roding Automobile with capital, manufacturing resources and
know-how.
Before founding the company, the four founders carried out
a feasibility study. Here amongst others the available market for a light-weight sports car, its potential customers,
required technology, economic feasibility and product placement were analysed. Based on this study the strategic decision was taken to focus on economic CFPR (carbon fibre
reinforced plastics) technology. This means that techniques
should be used that have a chance to be applied in mass
production. As an example Maier refers to an intelligent
structure designed with the strengths of fibre-reinforced
composites in mind, and for which manufacturing is already
taken into account in the design stage. Dry fabrics, a simple
tooling strategy and a focus on resin infusion are, amongst
others, important factors.
Bevor es jedoch zur Gründung kam, wurde eine Machbarkeitsstudie angefertigt. In dieser wurden unter anderem der
Markt für einen individuellen Leichtbausportwagen, potentielle Kunden, notwendige Technologien, Wirtschaftlichkeit und
Positionierung des Produktes untersucht. Aus den Ergebnissen folgte die strategische Entscheidung, auf die wirtschaftliche CFK (kohlenstofffaserverstärkter Kunststoff) Technik zu
setzen. Denn auf diese Weise können Verfahren anwendet
werden, die eine Chance haben in Großserien eingesetzt zu
werden. Als Beispiel nennt Maier eine intelligente faserverbundgerechte Konstruktion, die bereits die Fertigungstechnologie von Beginn an mitberücksichtigt, Trockengelege,
eine einfache Werkzeugstrategie und die Konzentration auf
Infusionsverfahren sind unter anderem wichtige Stellhebel.
Nach Beendigung der Machbarkeitsstudie und der Festlegung der Strategie wurde 2008 die Roding Automobile
GmbH gegründet. Direkt nach der Firmengründung begann
die Entwicklung des Roding Roadsters. So wurde eine modulare CFK Fahrzeugarchitektur entwickelt. Riedl erläutert:
„Das tolle an der Plattform ist, dass sie sowohl für einen
konventionellen Antriebsstrang mit Verbrennungsmotor, als
auch für einen batterieelektrischen Antrieb geeignet ist“.
Die Konzeptstudie wurde 2009 auf der IAA in Frankfurt zum
ersten Mal vorgestellt. „Hier ist einiges an Marktfeedback
auf uns zugekommen“, erinnert sich Maier. „Natürlich war
bei dieser Konzeptstudie auch die technische Absicherung
wichtig. Denn was auf Papier funktioniert, funktioniert ja leider nicht immer direkt in der Realität. Wie bei der Formula
Student: testen ist einer der wichtigsten Punkte bei der Entwicklung eines neuen Autos.“ Die gesammelten Erkenntnisse
aus den Tests wurden bei der Entwicklung des Serien Roding
Roadsters umgesetzt. Dieser feierte seine Weltpremiere
2012 beim Genfer Automobilsalon.

As soon as the feasibility study was completed the Roding
Automobile GmbH was founded in 2008. Directly after the
company had been founded the development of the Roding
Roadster was commenced. A modular platform with a CFRP
architecture was developed. Riedl explains: “the nice thing
about the platform is that it can accommodate a conventional powertrain with a combustion engine as well as a battery
electric drive”.
2009 the concept study was presented to the public at the
IAA in Frankfurt for the first time. Maier remembers: “We
could collect valuable market feedback here. Of course, technology validation was also an
important aspect of the concept study. Not everything you
think out on paper works at
the first attempt in reality. As
for Formula Student, testing
is one of the most important
aspects of the development of
a new car”. The collected data
were used to develop the series production version of the
Roding Roadster, which debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor
Show.
Jahr dabei und baute auch am 2006er Auto von TUfast mit.
Mit dem Ende des Studiums und dem Wechsel in das Berufsleben endeten jedoch nicht Faszination und Leidenschaft.
„Die Idee ein modernes Leichtbau Fahrzeug für die Straße zu
entwickeln, kam durch unsere Formula Student Erfahrungen
auf“ bestätigt Maier. Und so kam eins zum anderen. Die vier
ehemaligen Tufast Mitglieder wollten sich selbstständig machen und der ehemalige Sponsor Stangl & Co suchte nach
einem Produkt, mit dem es seine Kompetenz am Markt unter Beweis stellen konnte. Ein Leichtbausportwagen war da
genau das Richtige. So ermöglichte Stangl & Co. mit Kapital,
Fertigungsressourcen und Know-how die Gründung der Roding Automobile GmbH.

The Formula Student Network
Das Formula Student Netzwerk
More than a sports car manufacturer, Roding Automobile is
a technology company that specialises in the development of
economical lightweight structures. Furthermore they advise
automotive industry on the subject of structural
topology and part manufacturing and offer engineering services. All in all that is a lot of work,
“and therefore we try to maintain close contact
with Formula Student teams”, says Maier, “to
recruit new employees, as well as interns, graduate or Ph.D. students.”
Mehr noch als eine kleine Sportwagenmanufaktur ist Roding
Automobile ein Technologieunternehmen, das sich auf die
Entwicklung von wirtschaftlichen Leichtbaustrukturen spezialisiert hat. So beraten sie die Automobilindustrie
zum Thema Strukturauslegung und Bauteilfertigung und liefern weitere Ingenieurdienstleistungen. Dies macht viel Arbeit, „und deswegen versuchen wir den engen Kontakt zu den Formula
Student Teams für die Rekrutierung von neuen
Mitarbeitern, Semesterstudenten, Diplomanden
oder Doktoranden zu nutzen“, so Maier.
In summary one can say that the founders of
Roding Automobile could put their Formula Student experience to good use. “As well in constructing our Formula Student cars as during the
events, we were able to make valuable contacts
within automotive industry. This helped us in
building a strong network”, confirms Maier.
Die Formula Student Erfahrung hat den Gründern von Roding Automobile einiges gebracht.
„Sowohl bei der Konstruktion unserer Formula
Student Fahrzeuge, als auf dem Events selbst,
haben wir wertvolle Kontakte in der Automobilindustrie knüpfen können. Auf diese Weise konnten wir ein starkes Netzwerk aufbauen“, bestätigt Maier.
Formula Student functions as a pool for new,
high-qualified and already experienced employees. At the same time it supports the students

The Perspective of a Design Judge
Aus der Perspektive eines Juroren
An article by Dr.-Ing. Norbert Dölle
Ein Artikel von Dr.-Ing. Norbert Dölle
The big German automotive companies advertise with slogans like “the best or nothing”, “truth in engineering“ or “the
ultimate driving machine”. One might ask, what this has to
do with Formula Student. After all, no comfortable luxury
cars are engineered and built for the competition. Most
team members have the attitude to search for new technical solutions and not to settle for less than the best in their
blood. In the end all engineers and designers are connected
by one thing: the fascination for their product, whether it is
a luxury car or a race car. The joy of driving may be obvious
in this, for students and judges alike.
Time and again we chassis engineers are asked for the best
solution of the load-bearing structure of the car, a fibre-reinforced composite monocoque with or without a honeycomb
core, an aluminium sandwich etc. and whether one can still
win with a space frame structure. There is no overall right
answer to those questions. It is obvious that you can still
build a competitive car with a steel space frame structure.
Not in the last place does a space frame offer the excellent
possibility to tailor the structure to the loads applied to it
and to optimise it with relatively simple techniques. The best
structure can only be determined by considering a broad
range of evaluation criteria as function, weight and cost.
Weight plays an especially important role, both from a functional point of view as well as value for the customer, because lightweight design is a prerequisite for dynamic and
agile behaviour of a car. Even more important is the evalu-
Mit Hochglanz-Slogans wie „Das Beste oder Nichts“, „Vorsprung durch Technik“ oder „Freude am Fahren“ werben große deutsche Automobilkonzerne. Was hat das alles mit der
Formula Student zu tun? Schließlich werden da keine komfortablen Großraumlimousinen konstruiert und gebaut. Neue
technische Lösungen zu suchen und nur mit der besten zufrieden zu sein, das liegt in den Genen der meisten Team
Mitglieder. Am Ende verbindet alle Ingenieure und Entwickler
eins: die Begeisterung für ihr Produkt, egal ob es eine Großraumlimousine oder ein Rennwagen ist. Und der Spaß am
Fahren versteht sich von selbst. Sowohl bei den Studenten
als auch den Juroren.
Wir Rohbau-Juroren werden immer wieder gefragt, welches
die beste Bauform für die tragende Struktur ist, Stahlrahmenkonstruktion, FVK-Monocoque mit oder ohne Wabenkern, Aluminium-Sandwich, etc. und ob man mit einer Rahmenstruktur noch gewinnen kann. Eine allgemein gültige
Aussage dazu gibt es nicht. Klar ist, dass auch mit einer
Stahlrahmenstruktur noch ein konkurrenzfähiges Auto gebaut werden kann. Schließlich bietet die Rahmenbauweise
eine hervorragende Möglichkeit, die Konstruktion belastungsgerecht auszulegen und mit vergleichsweise einfachen
Mitteln zu optimieren. Die Auswahl einer bestmöglichen Bauweise lässt sich nur unter Berücksichtigung verschiedenster
Bewertungskriterien wie unter anderem Funktion, Gewicht
und Kosten treffen.
Aus Sicht der Funktion und des Kundennutzens ist das Ge-
Space Frame & Monocoque
In their requirements of the passenger cabin of a race car the
rules of Formula Student Germany are mainly geared to the
space frame. The allowable pipe thickness, the material gauges
as well as geometries are specified. Teams that want to build,
for instance, a fibre-reinforced composite monocoque, must
prove that their structure fulfills the minimum stiffness and
strength requirements.
What is the better choice depends on the design philosophy and
know-how of a team. Both of the cars shown made it into the
design finals last year.

Das Regelwerk der Formula Student Germany orientiert sich
bei den Anforderungen an die Fahrgastzelle eines Rennwagens
vor allem an der Rahmenstruktur, auch Spaceframe genannt.
Die erlaubte Rohrdicke, das Material sowie die Geometrie sind
vorgegeben. Teams die ein Chassis beispielsweise aus FVK (Faserverbundkunststoff) bauen möchten, müssen beweisen, dass
die Struktur die Mindestanforderungen von Steifigkeit und Festigkeit erfüllt.
Was die bessere Wahl ist, hängt von der Entwurfsphilosophie
und dem Know-how eines Teams ab. Die beiden gezeigten Autos
haben es letztes Jahr bis in die Design Finals geschafft.

ation of functional characteristics like torsional and bending
stiffness or the lightweight grade, which relates torsional
stiffness with the mass and geometry of the vehicle.
Apart from the figures that are listed in the documentation,
the presentation during the design review plays a decisive
role. First and foremost, students should be able to explain
and motivate their boundary conditions, design philosophy
and above all their design decisions. In my view, after the
brief presentation of the overall team and the allocation of
those responsible for individual areas, a short presentation
with pictures, sample components, the essential calculations
and simulations is the best introduction to the design competition. The subsequent professional discussion is important.
Here, the judges can see very quickly who has a thorough
understanding of the construction and understands the context for design, sizing and subsequent production.
Judges are reluctant to hear statements like: “we did so
exactly the same last year,” or, “we did not have time for
that”. Of course, it is obvious that it is hard to improve on a
top ranking car from last year, but also there one can explain that during redesign for changed boundary conditions a
similar technical solution was selected.
Sometimes the question is asked, whether it pays off for a
student to participate in a Formula Student team. From my
own experience I can only say, that the students we could
recruit at Formula Student events for an internship or their
graduation thesis, belonged to the top performers. And without exception they all found a job within an automotive environment. The chance to gain small-scale vehicle know-how
whilst studying from the very first concept up to the final
product across all disciplines is certainly rare. Whether it
makes sense to invest a year in Formula Student, everyone
should decide for themselves. A combination with an internship, a study or thesis is optimal from my point of view.

For me as a design judge, it is fascinating again and again
to see the passion and commitment that students put into
their vehicles and that under the most varying boundary conditions. Of course, it is very easy to see which teams receive
top support form their university and sponsors and which
need to get by with less technical and financial resources.
However, having the best equipment is no guarantee for victory. In the end engineering knowledge, team spirit and the
ability to explain their own technical solutions to the judges
and to inspire them are the things that count in the design
competition. That is what makes the event so attractive.
About the author:
Dr.-Ing. Norbert Dölle studied mechanical engineering at Clausthal-Zellerfeld and Paderborn. In 2001 he
received his doctorate in Paderborn in the simulation of mechanical joining processes. Subsequently, at
Femutec Engineering Company, Hamburg, he was responsible for R&D projects and joining technology. Since
2004 he works for Daimler AG in Ulm and Sindelfingen. Nowadays, in Daimler Research and Advanced
Engineering, he is responsible for the development of new simulation methods and the evaluation of the
preliminary development of the functions of stiffness, strength, durability and NVH.
wicht natürlich von besonderer Bedeutung. Schließlich ist
der Leichtbau Enabler für Dynamik und Agilität. Umso entscheidender sind für die Bewertung der Konstruktion Funktionswerte wie z. B. die Torsions- und die Biegesteifigkeit
oder die Leichtbaugüte, welche die Torsionssteifigkeit in Beziehung zur Masse und der Geometrie setzt.
Neben den reinen Kennwerten, die in der Dokumentation
stehen, ist die Präsentation im Design Review von entscheidender Bedeutung. Das ausschlaggebende in diesem
Wettbewerb ist, dass die Teams ihre Randbedingungen,
Auslegungsphilosophien und vor allem ihre Entscheidungen
erläutern und begründen können. Nach der kurzen Gesamtvorstellung des Teams und der Zuordnung der Verantwortlichen für die einzelnen Teilbereiche, ist aus meiner Sicht
eine kurze Präsentation mit Bildern, Musterbauteilen, den
wesentlichen Berechnungen und Simulationen der beste Einstieg in den Design-Wettbewerb. Wichtig ist die anschließende Fachdiskussion. Dabei erkennen die Juroren sehr schnell,
wer wie tief in der Konstruktion steckt und die Zusammenhänge für die Auslegung, Dimensionierung und die anschließende Fertigung verstanden hat.
Statements wie „das haben die im letzten Jahr schon genau
so gemacht“ oder „dazu war keine Zeit“ hören die Juroren
nur ungern. Natürlich ist klar, dass ein Top-Auto aus dem
letzten Jahr nur schwer verbessert werden kann, aber auch
dabei kann erläutert werden, dass beim Re-Design unter
den veränderten Randbedingungen eine vergleichbare technische Lösung herausgekommen ist.
Manchmal wird die Frage gestellt, ob sich der Einsatz der
Studenten in den FSG-Teams lohnt. Ich kann aus meiner Erfahrung nur sagen, dass die Studenten, die wir aus den Formula Student Events heraus für eine Abschlussarbeit oder
ein Praktikum gewinnen konnten, sicher zu den Top-Performern gehört haben. Und alle sind später ohne Probleme
im Automobilumfeld untergekommen. Die Chance, während
des Studiums in kleinem Maßstab Fahrzeug-Know-how vom
ersten Pinselstrich bis hin zur fertigen Konstruktion über
alle Gewerke hinweg sammeln zu können, gibt es sicherlich
selten. Ob es sinnvoll ist, ein oder zwei Semester nur in die
Formula Student zu investieren, muss jeder für sich selbst
entscheiden. Eine Kombination mit einem Praktikum, einer
Studien- oder Abschlussarbeit ist aus meiner Sicht optimal.
Für mich als Juror im Design-Event ist faszinierend, immer
wieder zu sehen, mit welcher Leidenschaft und mit welchem
Einsatz die Studenten an Ihren Fahrzeugen arbeiten. Und
das unter den unterschiedlichsten Randbedingungen. Natürlich wird sehr schnell deutlich, welche Teams mit TopUnterstützung von der Hochschule und von Sponsoren an
den Start gehen und welche mit weniger technischen und
finanziellen Mitteln auskommen müssen. Doch die beste
Ausstattung ist kein Garant für den Sieg. Am Ende zählen
im Design-Wettbewerb Ingenieurwissen, Teamgeist und die
Fähigkeit, den Juroren die eigene technische Lösung zu erläutern und sie dafür begeistern zu können. Das macht den
Reiz des Events aus.

Ecurie Aix - innovation and passion. A hybrid team, building combustion and electric cars, with over 50 exceptional and passionate
students, Ecurie Aix is truly unique. As one of the first European
teams to compete in Formula Student, Ecurie Aix has adopted a
worldwide exclusive CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), is
the only team that has conducted crash tests on their monocoque
and additionally uses a unique multi-link-front axis with a monoshock-absorber. This year, the eac09 will premiere at the FSG
event with a full monocoque, a distinctively designed intake and exhaust. Our engine will be combined with our own electro-hydraulic
shift system and high professional new ECU (Engine Control Unit).
But this is only possible with our members and partners. So we
would like to thank all our supporters, enabling our entire team to
participate once again with our ninth combustion car.

In 1999 Zips racing scored their first championship at an SAE
event. Since then the team has been working hard to find their
way back to the podium in Michigan. 2011 proved to be a huge
success for Zips Racing. Having the opportunity to compete in the
United States, Austria, and Germany the team has gained a vast
amount of knowledge, which has been carried over to the 2012
season. With high exceptions and passion for 2012, the team has
set their sights on placing in the top 5 overall at all competitions
they compete in. See you at the starting line! Special thanks to
all of the 2012 Zips Racing sponsors, we couldn‘t have done it
without you!!!

The AUMotorsports Team 2012 car has been designed with an
overall aim of simplicity and reasonable performance. Our former
team took part in the FSG 2010 competition and they graduated
the same year. Our team started 9 months after that with almost
all freshmen; hence we’ve gained our knowledge through reading
and analyzing the 2010 car. We’ve also used many parts from the
old car as we already have the experience working with them. The
car is designed with an overall weight goal of 280 kg including the
80 kg driver. The suspension system features adjustable camber,
kingpin, castor and toe angles to test as many setups as we can.
The data is to be analyzed and to help with the next year’s car
development. The engine is turbocharged and managed through
Megasquirt module.

The Running Snail Racing Team was established in August 2004.
Since then, we have participated in several Formula Student events
for 8 years. This year we will take part at the Formula Student
Events in England, Germany and Hungary. The racing car RS12 –
LC4 continues the concept of a Formula Student car by convincing
through best dynamic ability as well as a high level of manufacturing quality. The RS12 is based on the results of the tests and
competitions of our first seven cars. Our aim was again to reduce
the weight, to keep our high quality standards, give the car a good
drivability and reach better ergonomics for the drivers.

MRacing‘s 26th car, Princess, represents the team‘s 4th consecutive entry into Formula Student Germany. Each member‘s crazy
passion for her has led to a car worthy of the block M. This 4-cylinder space frame car has already finished 5th at Formula SAE
Michigan and represents the continued success of the team out
of Ann Arbor, Michigan. A focus on reliability and extensive testing
has made MRacing a formidable team, finishing in the top 10 in its

of sponsors and contributors who have made the team‘s goals a
reality.

We are a motivated Belgian team with approximately 20 students
from different backgrounds but all with an affinity for Racing and
cars in general. The concept we chose to further develop is our
„Side Engine“. The concept was developed by last year‘s team and
we chose to further develop and refine this concept. In this setup
we put the motor next to the driver to centralise all mass, giving
our car low inertial properties and good handling in the corners.
This setup also helps us in creating a relatively short car.

BIT Formula Racing Team was founded in June,2009, with more
than 50 undergraduates and graduates who are interested in
automobile technology. Our team holds the concept of passion,
cooperation and innovation, aiming at improving research and
creative abilities of college students. During the last two years, we
designed and manufactured our first and second car with excellent
performance in each competition. After obtaining the first championship of Formula Student China(FSC), BIT racing team achieved
another peak at the 9th JSAE, winning the first place in acceleration, ranking 19th in general among 75 teams. The second
generation of Black Shark brought us another championship in FSC
2011.

In this season’s racing car, the FT2012, we changed our motor
concept to a one-cylinder motor, forcing a complete new car
design. Still, we have got nothing to hide: our aim was to sustain
our high quality in manufacturing and the transparent bodywork, allowing spectators to have a look at the car’s technology. Our team
was committed and worked passionately to reach an ambitious
goal. Again, we are excited to be part of the FSG and hope it’ll be

2012 sees UBRacing make their 15th entry into Formula Student.
This year the team aims to improve on its overall result at FS compared to previous years. UBRacing are delighted to offer University
of Birmingham students, from all years, the chance to take part
in Formula Student and pride themselves in both the practical and
professional development of team members. For 2012, the primary design objective was to design a car capable of being the most
competitive UK entry and finishing top 10 overall at both Formula
Student UK and Germany. For the first time, the team was able to
make use of Tire Test Consortium data to drive specific suspension design decisions with the goal of getting the full performance
potential from our chosen tyres. In conjunction with the support
of the University of Birmingham and our sponsors, the team has
been able to focus on the time management of the project and
also preparation for the static events.

Since last season the team of RUB Motorsport has tripled in
size, so that the number of club members is increased up to 25
students. As there has been substantial progress in several areas
such as improved cooperation in manufacturing, we worked out
to unify high quality materials and smart constructions. Our team
members are highly motivated to put the finishing touches to our
next generation car. We look forward to present the RUBin 2012
this summer at FSA and FSG. Moreover the cooperation with the
Ruhr-University Bochum is growing more and more. In the summer
term 2012 the mechanical engineering department offers a
seminar held by RUB Motorsport. This seminar deals with the CAD
tool “Solid Works”. Further possibilities for students to incorporate
there interest for motorsport in there curriculum are for example
thesis. In this case experienced staff members provide support
and assist students on there way. Hopefully, our hard work will
result in successful races this season.

The BME Formula Racing Team was founded in 2008 at the TU
Budapest. During our 5 years of existence we have built 5 gasoline
and 2 electric powered racecars and more than 180 people have
taken part in designing, procurement, production, building and
have dealt with management, logistics and business affairs. Based
on these experiences, the continuous development and testing
of the past years we believe our team has grown up to the top
teams. We have built and tuned a very fast racecar during testing
so our target is to finish in the Top 10. The main objective of the
design was to build a car that best fits the needs of a weekend car
racer: be simple, ergonomic, easily maintainable and repairable,
adjustable in many ways, beautiful in every single part from engineering aspects and be the fastest on track of course! Feel free
to visit us in our pit garage to see and touch our racecar. We are
happy to answer your questions!

The FBR12 is Full Blue Racing‘s 6th entry to FSG. The car is a well
balanced package aimed at providing the ideal driving experience
for the amateur weekend racer, with complete setup freedom,
good handling and throttle response together with excellent reliability. A target of a 20kg weight improvement from last year was
set, achieved in part through the integration of a new carbon fibre
composite rear plate. Setup adjustability has been a main focus
of the vehicle dynamics on the FBR12 which features all new fully
adjustable upright and hubs. The key target this year has been to
complete the car ready for extensive testing from May onward allowing the team to develop the car and drivers further in terms of
both reliability and performance before the competition. The team
now comprises of over 40 members from the engineer, maths,
science and humanities faculties and would not be able to compete
without the help of over 30 sponsoring companies, to whom we
owe a large gratitude.

CAT-Racing, founded in 2007, is the Formula Student Team of
the University of Applied Sciences Coburg. This year our 40 team
members developed our fifth car, the C-12 Puma. The need for
compact design leading to an even increasing complexity in system
arrangement makes diligent planning and engineering inevitable.
Therefore keeping up durability, maintainability as well as drivability
with a short wheelbase results in enhanced a-arms bonding methods, a revised engine cooling system, simplified system boarders
to shorten dismantling times. On track performance is increased
due to adjustable anti roll bars and on overwrought intake manifold
decreasing engine reaction time. CAT-Racing thanks all sponsors,
friends and families who made this project possible.

successfully completed a ground up redesign with a new focus on
serviceability, driver comfort, and performance. “Dirty Thirty” is
a two-part carbon fiber monocoque, separated by just 12 bolts,
providing easy serviceability. For driver comfort, a multifunction
steering wheel with variable position clutch paddles, electronic flat
foot shift paddles, and a full color LCD display with driver selectable
outputs has been integrated. Further driver-centric features include launch and traction control, remote brake bias control, as well
as a 3 stage LED shift indicator. The car also includes countless
performance attributes such as custom metal matrix composite
brakes, lightweight titanium uprights, carbon fiber control arms
and a custom 3-speed gearbox. The Formula Buckeyes are exited
to compete this year and wish all of the competing teams good
luck!

In 2012 the team of BTU Cottbus will participate at the FSG
competition for the third time. Founded in 2007, the team now
counts about 31 members from several departments of our
university. We divided our team in five technical parts the engine,
carriage, frame steering and electronic. Furthermore we get a
new structure for the economic part of the team. There are some
members for the financial- and material sponsoring and for the
public relations. We are increasing our quantity of sponsors during
the season 2011/2012. Special thanks go to our sponsors and
our university workshops for supporting us with our ambitious
project. Hard work by all of them, results in a weight reduction by
70kg compared with the first racecar. Reasons for that are the
usages of high-tensile steel for the drive shafts or the application of
carbon fiberfor the seat. The self-built oil sump is much flatter than
the original one and allows us to position the engine lower and with
it the center of gravity.

achievements, perfectly established and shown in Italy 2011, were
significant weight reduction, up to 190 kg approximately (-10%
compared to cars of the previous years), with an increase in engine power and torque. Consequently we have improved our vehicle
with innovative components. Those characteristic features are the
following: completely revamped suspension geometry with carbon
fiber A-Arms and bespoke upright/wheel hubs, an optimized tube
frame with increased stiffness, plus a custom pedal unit and steering wheel for the high-level driver ergonomics. The whole team
appreciates much internal help and would like to sincerely thank all

High-Octane Motorsports is the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg‘s
FS team. This year our 45 team members developed our fifth
race car, the FAUmax epsilon. Our main goals were to significantly
reduce weight and to develope an aero package, by also refining
our stand-alone drivetrain layout with a longitudinally mounted
engine and a bevel gear. As a result we developed a lightweight car
of 165 kg in combination with a powerful Aprilia V2 engine with 58
kW. We built a full aero package with the rear wing mounted on
the undertray. To drastically reduce unsprung masses we developed 10 inch rims, which are made out of aluminium and CFRP. Our
steel tube frame has an integrated CFRP sandwich structure as an
underbody, combining high stiffness and low weight. The reliability
of our electronics were enhanced by replacing all fuses with high
side switches. So we try to tie on the successes from last season
and want to thank all our sponsors for their great support!

In 2006, the first building blocks for the foundation of the Rennstall Esslingen were placed at the UAS Esslingen. Meanwhile,
it is the largest project at the university and one of the flagship
projects. With the ‚12 Stallardo, the sixth race car from Esslingen
will start at the Formula Student Germany. The knowledge and experience of many Formula Student years are reflected in this car.
The engine concept with a 4 cylinder engine transversely mounted,
remains the same. However, we have revised and optimized each
individual component. A specially developed gearbox, steering gear,
cooling system are only a few examples. The Stallardo ‚12 is the
consequence of hard work, experience, smart ideas, reducing
weight, passion for beautiful racecars, interdisciplinary cooperation
and an unique team spirit combined with aplenty of good mood!

The University of Strathclyde Motorsport will be returning to Hockenheim to compete at their 5th FSG competition. The team will
be competing with their 12th car, USM12, that has been designed
with the focus on developing the current design philosophy while
building on the lessons learnt from 2011. Following an upgrade
to the CBR600RR engine last season, the team have designed
bespoke intake, exhaust and cooling systems to maximise performance. Also an upgrade to the DTA S80 ECU has allowed the
team to integrate both launch and traction control driving aids.
USM have continued to develop the team structure by incorporating Vice Team Manager and Technical Director roles. This allows
younger team members to gain vital experience thereby expanding
the knowledge transfer beyond the technical expertise of designing
a car. USM would like to thank all of our sponsors and the University of Strathclyde for their continued support and assistance
through the 2012 season.

The Chalmers Formula Student team is excited to be competing in
FSG for the first time in 2012. After 4th place at Silverstone last
year, this year’s team has a lot to live up to - and our ambitions are
set accordingly. We have learned from past experience, including
the need of keeping the car quickly and accurately adjustable to
keep up performance in shifting track conditions. This is reflected
in our design - focusing on accessibility and simplicity of adjustments. Among this year‘s more visible features is an advanced
aerodynamics package, making our car not only well-performing,
but also quite intimidating. Watch out, fellow Formula Students!
We could not have done it alone. Our partners are helping us grow
and evolve. However, our focus is not just on building the fastest
car. Our true objective is to Deliver the Engineers of Tomorrow. At
the end of each year, when the car moves towards retirement, 30
skilled and enthusiastic Engineers have barely (kick)started their
career.

The TANKIA2012 is the most revolutionary development in the
history of the TUG-Racing team. In recent years, we used an
engine that was amongst the most powerful on the track. This
year, we made a turn regarding this concept. The focus is now on
lightweight and agility rather than merely power. The chassis has
become slimmer, the tyres smaller and we shortened the track
as well as the wheelbase. And we even went one step further: we
switched the engine from a heavy 4-cylinder to a single-cylinder
KTM. As a result of our changes, we estimate a much better fuel
consumption and more agility. These improvements will provide the
driver with enough confidence to stick it into the bends and prove
our point. Our car comes with a carbon fiber monocoque and a
carbon fiber space frame rear end, which is stiffer and makes
it possible to remove the engine very quickly. The self-developed
multifunctional steering wheel enables the driver to adjust vehicle
parameters easily during the race.

Joanneum racing graz is a highly motivated team from the UAS
„FH Joanneum“, Graz. The team is well known as „The Weasels“
and competes in Formula Student since 2004. A new car has
been built every year since then. The team members change every
year, which brings a lot of new ideas into the team. The basic team
consists of approximately 25 Automotive Engineering students supported by students from other study courses from the UAS Graz.
Therefore joanneum racing graz is a very innovative team with new
features in every car. As we traditionally use charged engines the
new car is powered by a self-developed turbocharged 2-cylinder
engine with direct injection which represents latest technology.
The chassis of the car is a lightweight one-piece CFRP-monocoque.
Last year‘s car showed that the combination of a lightweight chassis and efficient but also powerful turbocharged engine is competitive. The team 2012 enhanced engine technology and is keen on
proving the competitiveness of their car!

This year’s vehicle of the Helmut-Schmidt-University / University of
the German federal Armed Forces is the RUSH12. It is the fifth
time that the Eleven-O-Six Racing (EOS) Team takes part at the
Formula Student Germany in Hockenheim. The successor of the
RUSH11 combines a lot of experience with new ideas and is a new
fast vehicle made by EOS. Furthermore improvements in engine
performance and chassis kinematics as well as a new light weight
tubular space frame backup our high expectations for this year’s
event. Similar to its predecessor, the RUSH12 features an iPhone
dashboard in order to provide any necessary information for the
driver and the pit. Altogether the RUSH12 is our answer for the
Formula Student Germany 2012. Thanks to all of our supporters,
who made this amazing car possible.

Since 2004 HAWKS Racing has participated successfully in the
Formula Student. Hereby the H08 is the latest HAWKS Racing
car in our garage. Representing yet another step towards excellence, it is a consequent evolution of previous seasons’ cars. To
reduce weight and increase stiffness we designed a new CFRPmonocoque. To improve our performance on track, we developed
an extended aero package. Clutch and shifter are actuated via
paddles at the steering wheel. The heart of the powertrain is a Kawasaki ZX6R-engine and is modified at our dyno. To handle all that
power, we designed special brake calipers, which together with our
new paddle assembly give the driver full control of the car. A body
fitted CFRP-seat, an adjustable pedal box and intuitive controls are
designed to guarantee a maximum level of comfort. In the tradition
of building the most beautiful cars in FSAE, we equipped the new
car with a breath taking bodywork.

In the 2012 season our team consists of 25 active members from
a variety of different fields of studies. Our third car is more evolution than revolution, based on the successful predecessor. Every
single part has been enhanced and optimized though, featuring a
lot of new production methods like rapid prototype mouldings or
special compound combinations. Also, for the first time our car is
equipped with an array of aerodynamik devices like an active undertray and diffusor or rear/front wings with adjustable flaps. The
engine has been tuned to deliver more torque, which works hand
in hand with the drivetrain modifications. The chassis setup aims
for maximum driveability and extreme cornering and is adapted to
the live mounting of the rear wings. Our driver information system
features a hood-mounted rpm display with programmable shift
lights in addition to the main dashboard. To improve our practical
engineering skills, basically all of the car has been manufactured by
ourselves.

UH Racing has only one aim and that is to become the first UK
team to win Formula Student Germany. Following last year’s
successful collaboration of Masters and Undergraduate students,
UH Racing is looking to build upon our 7th place overall at FSG.
The team has a well-defined structure including a core managerial
team overseeing all aspects of the car. The broad knowledge of
its 30 team member’s makes UH Racing a strong contender and
one to watch this year. Drawing upon a wealth of existing Formula
Student knowledge the team has focused its attention on data
driven designs. Strict performance targets were identified for each
vehicle subsystem and every design has been reviewed with respect to the original design criteria. This year’s strategy continues
to develop statics but focus heavily on the overall dynamics of the
team in order to operate efficiently and realise our full potential.
Winning is the only thing that matters, everything else is a consequence of that.

Being a team of about 60 students, KA-RaceIng builds two cars
every year: one with an electric drivetrain and one with a combustion engine. Starting in autumn with conception and design, we
set a tight production schedule to present our new cars in April.
The KIT12 is our 6th combustion car and combines the best of
new ideas and tested concepts. As we are building two cars, we
develop several parts which meet the requirements of both cars
and improve testing time and manufacturing effort. Since March
2011 we are developing a 2-cylinder, turbocharged, direct injected
combustion engine at Mercedes-AMG GmbH especially for use in
formula student vehicles. The KIT12 is developed and manufactured to run with this engine. Due to delays during development
and testing we could not use the engine for startup of the vehicle
and thus placed our last years‘ modified motorcycle engine in the
KIT12. We would like to thank all supporters and are looking forward to an exciting event in Hockenheim.

Founded in 2006, High Speed Karlsruhe is entering its 6th season
in the Formula Student competition. Forty motivated students
of the “Technische Hochschule Karlsruhe” worked together for
one year to design and build the new car, the F-106.The F-106
is a direct decedent of its predecessors. All our cars share the
600cc four cylinder engine and 13” wheels. The F-106 is the first
to feature a CFRP monocoque chassis. This new design provides
superior stiffness and a lower cg compared to the space frame
previously used.The car uses a CAN bus system, which connects
all control units and actuators. The electronic system is equipped
with advanced data logging, traction and launch control. A WiFi
system enables the engineers to monitor the vitals of the car in
real time.We would like to thank all our sponsors and supporters
for their efforts. Your support is greatly appreciated. We are looking forward to an exciting season with the F-106 racing here at
FSG and later this year in Spain.

As we showed last year, Herkules Racing Team is definitely able
to build a competitive car. We have further developed our car
concept into the light weight direction. Clearly, we are using carbon
reinforced plastic more often this year as well as aluminum instead
of steel. We have also downsized many components in the car, and
avoided welding wherever it is possible by using adhesives instead.
In addition, we have improved our engine and powertrain: we
gained 14 hp compared with our 1st car and saved about 3.5 kg
rotated mass in the power train design. A feed forward traction
control is another new development of ours, which hopefully brings
some advantage. We are looking forward to this year‘s competition and we are confident we will be at our best.

The Infinity Racing Team was established in 2007 and already in
2008 we could celebrate our first great success when we won the
“Best Newcomer” award at the FSG. Our team currently consists
of about 35 highly motivated and dedicated students out of all
faculties of the UAS Kempten. Building on our success and the
knowledge we gained during past competitions, we work towards
the constant development and improvement of our racing cars to
achieve an even better performance. In this year’s competition,
we will present our fourth car called “TOMSOI IV”, we reduced
its weight by approx. 25 kg compared to last year’s car. For its
construction, we used a light tube space frame. A motorsport
ABS guarantees a high grade of security. Furthermore, our car
features a live telemetry system and many options to change the
car’s setup. It is characterized by its high agility and the possibility
of fast shifting via pedals on the steering wheel.

Founded in 2005, the Bodensee Racing Team consistently improved its car as well as in-house skills and expertise. With our 38
team members we’re looking forward to a favorable season 2012
and a great event in Hockenheim. We developed many parts of our
last-season-car to design a faster and lighter “Iltis12”. Different
to our other cars we mount our dampers overhead this year.
Additionally, the steering shaft is also mounted inside, so the whole
car looks narrower. With a weight of 219 kilogram we reached
our aim of a yearly lighter construction, along with a steel frame.
Furthermore our special hybrid wheel rim made of carbon and
aluminium allow a new category of weight and speed possibility.
We get powered by a modified Suzuki GSX-R Engine with a 4-2-1
exhaust pipe system. The drive train assembly is fitted to the
engine and supported at the rear frame tube, which results in high
stiffness and easy handling.

The OWL Racing-Team is a young team, established in 2008.
Our first car, the OWL 09 (named after the region our school is
located in) finished as the best newcomer at the FS event in Italy
2009. Driven by our passion and determination to achieve success
and based on this experience our team has developed the new
concept -the OWL 1.2- while implementing a number of advancements and interesting technical solutions in every aspect of the
car. In 2012, we‘ve set ourselves new goals. Having reinforced the
team with new dedicated students from a variety of fields we want
our car to finish under the top 25 at the Formula Student Germany
event in Hockenheim. Specifically for this year‘s car we‘ve designed
a variable intake runner system with our acclaimed iris diaphragm
used as the throttle. Moreover our long term plan is to manufacture an affordable high performance competitive car.

The University of Liverpool Motorsport team began life in 2005
and is now entering its seventh year in FSAE Competitions. The
team comprises of 35 final year and penultimate year Mechanical
and Product Design with Engineering MEng engineering students.
The team’s strategy for the 2012 competitions is one of consistency with design of ULM007 focused on reliability, serviceability
and low cost manufacture. An all new Unsprung Suspension
system based on 13” rims features custom wheel centres, all
aluminium stub axles and AP Racing callipers.With focus on drive
integration, the ULM007 chassis has an improved driver position,
with adjustable pedal box and a student designed vacuum formed
ABS seat. A revised bodywork methodology has resulted in a light
weight vacuum formed ABS panel design with significant cost and
manufacture lead time gains over glass/carbon fibre equivalents.
Finally, the team wishes to thank our sponsors, without them the
construction of the car wouldn’t be possible.

This year is the third season for the Delta Racing Team from the
University of Applied Sciences Mannheim competing at our homeevent in Hockenheim. Located around 30 km near the track, we
are highly motivated to show the capability and performance of
our car. Our most distinguishing feature is the in-line drive train
composed of an intercooled turbo charged two cylinder engine and
a separated 2-speed gearbox with integrated limited slip differential. Our main goals for this season is to improve reliability, reduce
weight and burn a hell of rubber at the events. To reach this, we
massively increased our use of composites, worked out weight
reduction for many parts by not degrading stability and optimized
the engine performance. The car was built to give our drivers a
sharp weapon at hand, so ergonomics and suspension setup were
fine tuned to their demands. In order to learn more about our car,
we invite you to come over to our pit so we can proudly present
you our brand new DR12TC!

It is the second car for UNI Maribor Grand Prix Engineering. We
are entering FS UK, FS AUT and FSG. The highlight remains the
unique aluminium space frame. To lower the car’s mass, composites were used for suspension arms, wheels, bodywork, seat, floor,
intake, oil sump, steering wheel and throttle pedal. A lot of work
was done on engine internals (new pistons for higher compression
ratio, rotated camshafts for different valve opening diagrams, grinded cam profiles). The suspension aims to provide optimal camber
curves and the ability to offer different heave and roll stiffness. The
quick-shift system is simply a DC motor changing gears in under
100 ms. The custom made diff housing is as light as the most
expensive commercial units. With a sophisticated DAQ system,
including vehicle slip angle sensor, we were able to compare tires
from two different manufacturers and improve our simulation
based on TTC data. While studying to become engineers, we like
to believe we are racers!

The Monash Motorsport M11 has been the team‘s first clean
sheet redesign since 2006. Thanks to KTM, the team has recently
switched to the 450SX-F single cylinder engine, which has helped
us to dramatically reduce overall vehicle weight and fuel consumption. Taking advantage of the 2011 aerodynamics rule changes,
the M11 runs one of the largest wings and diffuser packages
ever seen in Formula Student to generate 90 kg of downforce at
60 km/h, and the car’s and driver‘s weight in downforce at 105
km/h. Thanks to new Goodyear D2704 tyres the M11 can make
the most of this additional download, and regularly sustains +2g
cornering in competition. The M11 was completed four months
prior to its first competition (FSAE-A 2011), and has completed
1200 km (equivalent to 54 Endurance lengths) before arriving at
Formula Student Germany. We would like to thank RWTH Aachen
for hosting us and we look forward to seeing all the teams in
Hockenheim!

This year, our team’s philosophy is summarized with the following
words: simplicity, reliability, lightness. To respect these original
goals, the “Fearless” car is based on several main design points
and/or innovations that are: • Switch from 4-cylinder engine (last
year’s prototype) to single-cylinder engine. • Switch from 13” rims
(last year’s prototype) to 10” rims. • Possible use of aluminum
brake discs: 2012 innovation. • Lowering of the center of gravity’s
position to maximize the grip. • Car weight less than 200 kg (last
year’s prototype: 236 kg).

The aim of the team is to produce a lightweight, powerful and reliable car. The small, but technically strong, team (only 26 people)
has worked hard to optimize each subsection through all the car:
an extremely detailed CAD model and many hours spent on FEA
and CFD simulation helped us to reach our objectives. The team
has worked also on the reliability of the engine, an Aprilia RXV 550
V-Twin, which allows to have high torque from the lower rpm‘s till
redline, but is a very sensitive engine. The suspension system is
unique, with a pull-rod sys. at front and a push rod sys. at rear
and guarantees a simple and rapid set up of the car. The strong
reductions of weight, although the chassis is a steel tubular one,
and inertias complete the most competitive and well designed car
ever conceived by the team. After the confirmation on the track of
the performances of our small engineering jewel, Dynamis proudly
presents its DPRC-XVO12.

work. We fully changed the car. It is a new powerdrive, new drivetrain, absolutely new suspension with great amount of adjustments. And most importantly - Russia‘s first CFRP monocoque!
Before us, no Russian team in motor sports did this. It is a first
CFRP-monocoque fully produced in Russian. This was a main goal
in this year - to master this technology. Now our team is ready to
solve further problems. We are set to stay the best in Russia and
try to achieve a good result in the competition. We are proud to
take part in FSG event, so we want to thank our sponsors because
it would not be happening without them.

The Formula Student MAMI team from Moscow State Technical
University «MAMI» is ready to present to you the Iguana EVO4 race
car. Full of energy and enthusiasm we burn with the desire to build
fast cars. Iguana EVO4 is a comparatively simple race car with
striking asymmetrical design. Over 25 highly motivated students
were involved in project. As a result the overall vehicle weight was
reduced, the frame stiffness was increased, the intake system and
the exhaust system were modified and a new Data Logging System
was introduced in comparison with Iguana EVO3. We are confident
that our race car will not leave anyone indifferent. The team is
ready to show good results at the FSG 2012 event.

In 2006, a bunch of amateur yet ambitious engineering students
from K. J. Somaiya College of Engineering, looking to break the
shackles of an orthodox education system rolled up their sleeves
and took to the workshop with passion in their hearts, tools in
their hands and a battered auto rickshaw engine. Six years down
the line, team Orion Racing India has grown significantly in size, improved its organization & structure and gained a lot of experience
through international exposure. This year the project timeline was
revised in order to reduce the time spent on design & manufacturing and increase the time spent on vehicle testing. The increased
focus on testing is aimed at ensuring reliability and improving
performance. The ORI-12 boasts several new features such as an
indigenously designed PU foam steering wheel, a paddle shifter and
a pull-rod actuated front suspension system. The team is excited
to be back at FSG and looks forward to an exciting and successful
run this year.

In 2002 TUfast Racing team was founded, therefore we are
celebrating ten years of TUfast and our ninth formula student race
car with combustion engine, the nb012. Its predecessor showed
that reliability and maintainability are two key factors for a successful formula student car. So the challenge was to build which
reliable and well engineered. We came up with the nb012, it has a
hybrid chassis, the well known Kawasaki 4-cylinder engine, lots of
awesome parts, a well balance package and for the first time on a
TUfast car 10“ wheels. If you want to learn more about TUfast and
the nb012, just come and visit us in our pit or on the campground

municHMotorsport 1 team – 2 cars2012 is year number 7 for
the municHMotorsport team from the UAS Munich competing
in Formula Student and the third year entering the FSG with two
cars. This season our overall slogan is “2 cars - 1 team” which outlines the strong connection of the combustion and electric team.
The 2012 FSC car, our PW7.12 again focuses on massive weight
reduction combined with more stiffness and better driver orientation. Therefore we use a carbon fibre monocoque combined with
our well developed suspension and a Honda CBR 600 RR engine
with a new developed dry sump system. A strong focus on data acquisition allows us to prepare the PW7.12 for every single event.
Thanks to our university and the numerous sponsors and supporters this season we are looking forward to the FSG competition in
August and are keen on meeting all our friends from other teams
again. Passion is what makes the Formula Student so special. This
is why our cars are named PassionWorks!

Oxford Brookes Racing has worked tirelessly to develop and manufacture the evolution of our ISISXI chassis into our new ISISXII
„Miss Piggy“ for the 2012 Formula Student Germany competition.
We have further improved our aluminium sandwich panel chassis,
for increased focus on both weight saving for performance, and
also reduced manufacturing time for cost. We are actually the only
European team that competes in the FSAE competition in Michigan
in a new car, showing the impressive manufacturing speed of the
simple, yet effective design. At Oxford Brookes Racing we believe
that you do not have to rely on expensive and costly materials to be
able to produce a fast car, and we proved that with our sixth position overall in Autocross & win in the skid pad event this year at
FSAE. Oxford Brookes Racing are therefore aiming to be one of the
top contenders at Formula Student Germany this year. For more

The UPBracing Team e.V. was founded in 2006 by seven students
of the University of Paderborn. After one year the team took part
in the first racing event at Hockenheim with their first car, the
PX207. Since the foundation the team has registered a steady
increase of team members. Today the team exists of about 160
members of whom about 50 students are involved in the development and organization. The team has many different activity
areas, which are described in the following: More than 60 % of
the team work for the main area, the mechanical engineering.
Mostly they work with CAE programs to develop and optimize the
various components of the car. The deadline for the construction
of the car is in spring. After that the manufacturing phase begins.
Another important area is the electrical engineering, as the whole
car needs to be supervised and regulated including for example
the equipment of a data bus of system and the construction of the
cable harness.

This year the Rennschmiede Pforzheim (RSP) celebrates its
Formula Student racing-premiere. Founded in 2009 we started
building our team and began to develop the car-concept. Pforzheim, located between Stuttgart and Karlsruhe, is known as the
centre of the German jewellery industy. At UAS Pforzheim different
courses in engineering, economics, law and design are offered.
30 students of all faculties work together in our team. The car,
called RSP-12 „Zabrina“, follows a light-weight concept, with a total
weight less than 190kg. For our first car we focussed on reliable
solutions following our slogan: „By Quality a Nose Ahead“. Polystyrol, combined with textile inlays form the body shell. This offers
easy access to all mechanical parts of the car combined with
breathtaking design. Furthermore a Head-Up-Display showing the
engine speed and a gearshift signal is another outstanding feature
of the RSP-12. Especially the HUD supports the driver by increased ergonomics. See you on track!

The CTU CarTech Formula Student Combustion Team was founded
in 2008 at the Czech Technical University in Prague. After the
most successful year in CTU CarTech history, the team of 20
young and motivated students started to prepare its fourth formula car for this season under the designation FS.04. Conceptually,
the car is based on its predecessors, with all the efforts primarily
aiming at further mass reduction and tweaking of individual subassemblies to form a better organized and higher performing package. The main goal was to finish the car as fast as possible and
to have enough time for the testing. The long period testing will
make our car more competitive and help us to increase reliability.
Looking forward to meeting the international competition, the team
is excited for the Formula Student Germany event 2012.

Dynamics: „(...) the effects of forces on the motions of bodies“.
There are many reasons why in December 2006 this became
the name of our FS team. We, the Dynamics e.V., are a group
of racing enthusiasts, who form a strong team, eager to work
hard to constantly move forward and achieve our goal: building a
competitive vehicle from scratch during the period of an academic
year. Therefore students from the various fields of studies offered
at the University of Applied Sciences in Regensburg, Germany put
their effort, growing know-how gained during lectures, and physical
hard work into all the stages of constructing, operating and promoting their race car, which is this season’s RP12. The numerous
competitions are the highlights of each season, where teams from
all over the world participate. They are yet another motivation that
everybody is looking forward to because in the performance of the
self-made vehicle all the hard work of the previous months finally
pays off.

The RIT Formula SAE Racing Team has competed in thirty-eight
Formula SAE and Formula Student competitions on three different
continents. In twenty years, RIT has been awarded numerous accolades, including overall titles in the US, England, and Australia. In
the 2011 competition season RIT placed 5th at Formula Student
Germany with strong performances in individual events including
a victory in Acceleration, 3rd place in Autocross, and 4th place
in Skidpad. The goal of the RIT Formula SAE Racing Team is to
produce a winning car for the FSAE competitions. To achieve that,
the racecar must be fast, reliable, easy to drive, and efficient. An
extensive simulation effort guided the design process. Physical
testing was performed using both destructive and non-destructive
methods. Dynamometers were used to properly tune the engine,
dampers, and brakes. An efficient testing plan was designed in
order to best utilize the spring season to validate critical design
aspects of the vehicle.

After the first year of experience, in the last two years our team
followed a positive trend that let us reach the 17th place overall in
FSG2011 and the 8th overall at FSAE Italy2011 and lead us to the
top 60 in the world ranking. The 2012 team, composed by 30 students from mechanical and aeronautics engineering, has worked
hard to design and build a top level car, following ambitious technical goals. During winter, several tests have been done, working on
the 2011 car to set the electronics and sample different solutions
for the 2012 prototype. The result of this work is „Gajarda2012“,
our fifth car, build around a CFRP monocoque main frame and provided with electronic differential, carbon fiber rims and continuous
variable length runners in the airbox. Sapienza Corse‘s definitely
ready for FSG2012... what about you?

The Team BRS Motorsport was founded in 2007 and we have
been participating with our cars since 2009. Our Team consists
of 40 students from all faculties from the University of Applied
Science Bonn-Rhein-Sieg. We are proud to be part of the Formula
Student Germany event in Hockenheim for the third time. For our
Car The [dzi:] 12, we developed some very nice parts. In order
to reduce the unsprung mass we developed carbon fiber a-arms,
wheel hubs made from titanium, and forged aluminum rims made
form Otto Fuchs KG with a weight of only 2.4 kg. We optimized our
frame to be stiffer, lighter, safer and to integrate all mountings into
the structure to get a better force flow and to make the fabrication process easier. We also advanced our engine and drive train
package. We modified our air intake system, the cylinder head, all
bearings inside the engine and the drive train to get the maximum
power to the wheels and to the ground.

Founded in 2006, the Mainfranken Racing e.V. has built a Formula
Student car the fifth time by a small but effective team of about
twenty members. We can look back by our standards to an amazing and successful history. Forced by passion we want to draw on
that. With much blood, sweat and tears the almost new team with
no event experience set up a racecar with a reasonable design in
all manners. The compromise between performance and reliability,
availability, maintainability and serviceability that is reached is in the
end the best available total package. The born MFFive is hiding a
lot of highly sophisticated technical solutions. It comes with carbon
fibre rims and an innovative intake manifold. Other highlights are
the steering-wheel with entirely self-developed hard- and software
and a multifunctional display. Singularly the participation with a properly functioning car is already an upright success. But we want to
take the road to more... Let’s see in Hockenheim!

Aristotle Racing Team (ART) was formed in 2006 by a group of
mechanical engineering students at the Aristotle University of
Thessaloniki, Greece. Since its creation ART has managed to
develop two racing vehicles which competed in several European
FSAE events. Having gathered knowledge and experience over the
past years, ART has set forth on designing its third project. The
current team consists of 26 members and aims at developing a
competitive single-seater for the racing track of Hockenheimring
in Germany. The team’s design philosophy is centered around a
lightweight and reliable construction. The latest vehicle features a
chromo-moly tubular frame and redesigned suspension geometry.
The frame houses a HONDA CBR engine accompanied by a teambuilt dry sump lubrication system. It is the ambition of the team
to succeed in its first FSG appearance by achieving a good overall
position.

The University of Toronto presents UT12 for the 2012 Formula
Student Germany competition. The past 15 years of experience
have culminated into this design; focused on reliable high performance. UT12 is Toronto’s first 10” wheel vehicle featuring newly
designed welded aluminum uprights and 6061-T6 hubs. 2012 is
the fourth installment of the Honda TRX450 motor modified to increase volumetric efficiency by 7.5% while increasing broad range
torque output over UT11. Design features include a high compression piston, reduced transmission gears and thermal coated
stepped exhaust header. Focus was placed on creating a robust
fuel /ignition map to ensure reliable operation during the testing
and competition seasons. The UT12 chassis has evolved from the
successful 2011 spaceframe. Chassis weight has been reduced
to 24kg and represents Toronto’s highest stiffness to weight ratio.
We look to build off our successes in 2011 and fight for the championship in Hockenheim.

an opportunity to apply theory in practice. The team is divided
into administration and six technical groups: Engine & drivetrain,
Electronics, Driver environment & safety, Frame & bodywork,
Suspension & brakes and R&D. Kongsberg Automotive supported
us from the very beginning. Cooperating with Petter Solberg, a
World Rally Champion, has been a great resource and inspiration
for the team. Our University, with long traditions in technology
and engineering, has also been a major collaborator throughout
the whole project, based on traditions dating back to 1910. The
car features a highly advanced, self-developed Data Acquisition
System, incorporating more than 20 sensors. Using a two-stage
variable intake, we achieve a high amount of torque from low RPM.
Norway‘s participation is long-awaited, and we are glad to attend
the FSG, representing Norway for the first time.

The very first ancestor of the race car was the Al’06. It competed
at Hockenheim at its first event. Now, the Einstein Motorsport
team returns with its sixth car, the Al’12. The name Einstein
Motorsport was chosen because of Ulm’s famous child, Albert Einstein. A goal for the team is and was to be innovative like Einstein
was it. Therefore every car has been an evolution step. By the aid
of sponsors it develops components which are fabricated in alternative production processes like precision casting, laser sintering
of plastics and steel or lamination of carbon fiber. At the University
of Applied Sciences nearly every faculty is involved, the main parts
are undertaken by the faculties “mechanical and automotive engineering” and “electro technology.” In 2012 the team involves the
audience a step further.

Brunel Racing is having its hardest year for many years with
minimal workshop access for the majority of the year and reduced
support from the University. However the strength of the team has
really shone through with dedicated team members and helpful
sponsors really pulling the project back on track. This will be Brunel
Racing‘s 13th year of competing in Formula Student and the hopes
are as high as ever. BR13 is the fourth iteration of the hybrid aluminum honeycomb monocoque/rear space frame chassis, which
this year incorporates a closed back to further increase chassis
stiffness. Brunel Racing would like to thank all our sponsors without whom this year would really not have been possible.

The Formula Student Team Weingarten, racing team of the UAS
Ravensburg-Weingarten was founded in 2008. This year we built
our 4th race car, the „Stinger 12“. We are participating at FSG
for the 3rd time. Our Team consists of more than 40 motivated
students, more than ever before. The experience and knowledge of
the last years came along with a lot of commitment of each team
member for the new vehicle. Our target was to build a race car
which is easy to handle, reliable, powerful and able to have a great
performance. The concept remained almost the same, a high-performance 4-cylinder engine with a steel space frame, standing on
13“ wheels. But a lot of systems have been developed during the
whole year and integrated in the Stinger 12, for example a new
throttle body, a traction control system and a telemetry system.
Thanks to all our sponsors for their support and we are looking
forward to a great season and successful competition in Hockenheim.

PWR Racing Team is proud to present RT03 – third car of the
team. This build was a great breakthrough for the team. Main
area of interest was weight reduction and new materials. For
the first time steel frame was replaced with monocoque. Honda
CBR600RR engine was dropped in favor of KTM 450SX, which is
half as heavy. Turbocharger introduction, together with E85 fuel,
provides competitive amount of torque and power. Further weight
optimization was done on all elements. These new technologies
were challenging but helped to reduce vehicle weight below 180kg.
The team consists of 30 students from several faculties at Wroclaw University of Technology and a designer from Academy of Art
and Design. Divided into technical and marketing/financial teams,
PWR Racing Team members have worked hard to design and build
a competitive race car. Group of curious and open-minded people
from different backgrounds again, have proven that competitive
race cars can be built in Poland.

Formula Student Germany 2012 is the first event at which the
newly founded team of the University of Wuppertal participates.
Formed in 2010, the Green Lion Racing Team has been designing
and working on the current car for over two years. The name
Green Lion Racing comes from the „green“ location of the university and also from the lion as the heraldic animal of the University of
Wuppertal. As a newcomer, our goal is to gain as much experience as possible, to set up a base for future cars from our team.
To achieve this goal, we created a car which is reliable, good to
handle and fast, of course. How fast it is, in comparison with the
cars of the established teams, the upcoming event will show – We
are looking forward to it! We invite you all to visit our pit for further
information. Finally, we would like to thank all our supporters and
sponsors. None of this would be possible without them.

The 2012 Formula Student Germany competition is the first
appearance of StarkStrom Augsburg, the racing team of the
University of Applied Sciences Augsburg. We spend the last 20
months with not only building up our first car but also with organizing everything for a Formula Student team from the beginning. As
a rookie we planned to build a rugged race car with nice features.
Therefore we build a compact car with a steel space frame and
two three-phase synchronous machines. Our low center of gravity
leads to low inertia and yawing moment around the vertical axis.
With the bodywork we wanted to create a modern redesign of the
famous race cars from the 1930’s. At the end we can say that we
are all proud of our first race car – ASRAEL. Nevertheless we want
to say “Thank You” to all of our sponsors for supporting us in the
last 20 months.

from our team. We are 25 devoted students that have faced the
electric car’s challenge with illusion. A lot of work has been put into
this year’s project and even with the change of combustion to electric we expect to reduce 20 kg. The tractive system is composed
of two independent powertrains to develop a traction and stability
control with huge opportunities. We are really looking forward to

In spring 2004 a small group of engineering students at University
of Bayreuth‘s then youngest faculty founded Elefant Racing. The
name is derived from the Faculty of Applied Sciences‘ abreviation
FAN which shares its letter string with the clever and powerful animal. Starting into season 2010/11 we decided to brake with our
tradition of building monocoque combustion cars. With the FR12
Vilja the follower of the FR11, we hold on to this strategy and developed our second high performance racing car completely electric
powered. Based on the special characteristics of electric engines
– especially a thrilling high torque through the whole rpm range the FR12 offers an absolute new racing experience compared to
conventional combustion engines. Up to 30 minutes enthralling
racing experience are provided by 950 LiFePO4 accumulator cells
with a capacity of 7.6 kWh.

DART-Racing is now participating at the Formula Student Germany for the seventh time. Over 35 highly motivated students from
various fields of study are working on this year’s car, the eta2012.
We set our focus on the electric powertrain with all its components, beginning with new cells up to the powertrain itself with
keeping compromises to a minimum. We choose new materials to
maintain our dedication to sustainability and reducing the carbon
footprint, so we are able to stay focused on our concept without
neglecting the static disciplines. As in the years before DART-Racing does stand for innovative and progressive design: developing
a new undertray with a rear diffuser we open the aerodynamic
chapter at DART-Racing. Through simulation and validation drives
we are able to improve our car’s performance with least possible
weight gain. DART-Racing is looking forward to an interesting and
hopefully successful Formula Student Germany competition.

FastForest represents the UAS Deggendorf in Formula Student
events. Founded in June 2008, our fourth season‘s team consists
of 45 active team members. 2012 is the first year with the team
building an electric Formula Student car only and not a combustion
car in addition like the years before. With the FF04e we decided to
design a entirely new car. The construction consists of a monocoque front and a steel tube rear frame in order to save weight.
In addition, the drivetrain was changed completely. The power
unit consists of two independent 32kW asynchronous motors
which are controlled by an electronical differential and a two stage
planetary gearbox. The power is lead to the wheels mounted on
a double wishbone suspension with a pullrod-actuated damping
system. With those and many other changes made with the experience over the last seasons FF04e will be even more competitive
and ready to race in Hockenheim! Moreover we want to thank our
sponsors for the great cooperation.

The Delft University of Technology (DUT) Racing Team consists
of sixty students from different faculties of the TU Delft, in the
Netherlands. The team is unique in its systematic approach in
design and project management. Nine full-time managers, together
with fifty-one part-timers, dedicate their whole year on designing
and building the second generation electric car, by Delft. The end
product is the DUT12. The DUT12 is the first four wheel driven
car ever made by the DUT Racing Team. The team started thinking
about how the ultimate electric car should look like and found their
ways in the focus on lightweight in combination with one motor per
wheel. This will take care of an optimal dynamic performance and
maximum regenerative braking capabilities, resulting in a fast and
more energy efficient car. This is in our opinion the best fulfillment
of the Delft Concept: Lightweight, efficient and fast!

Deefholt goes dynamic isn’t just a slogan, it’s an attitude! Starting
the 5th time for the competition and the 3rd time with an electric
car, we are proud of our achievements, but not willing to relax. Our
team in 2012 consists of 32 students bringing in all their competences from mechanical, electrical, industrial engineering and
mechatronics. The aim: Another weight reduction. In comparison
to the former frame we achieved a reduction of 4.5 kilograms. In
addition, the BMS is 5 kilograms lighter, although we even added
new functions. Every year we create something new. In 2012 we
will start with a self-developed drive control unit, which isn’t just
smaller and lighter, but fulfills all the functions we need. It will control the two new DC motors with an actual power output of 18 kW
per motor and a nominal torque of 42 Nm. Two planetary gears
transmit the power directly to our new rims with self-developed
wheel hub and central locking. We are looking forward to the
event!

Elbflorace e.V. is the fascination of Formula Student in Dresden,
Saxony. The team Elbflorace was founded in 2006. After three
combustion cars we have now manufactured our second full
electric Formula Student race car. For the new creation we used
all information gained from last year’s vehicle and manufactured a smaller and lighter race car. The “Murph-E” consists of a
two-parted CFRP-monocoque with a hatch at the rear for better
maintainability. Our self-developed single-stage double spur gear
is situated in the new self-constructed motor housing. Each gear
connects one high-speed spindle motor with the drive shaft on the
rear axle of the car. The wishbone inserts of the new vehicle are
optimized to make sure that the adhesive is covering every surface
which is needed. New sensory has been added and the car’s low
voltage system communicates only via CAN in 2012. Our team is
excited to compete with all teams at Formula Student in Germany.

University Racing Eindhoven (URE) was founded in 2004 and had
built 8 cars ever since. The team of 50 students from the smartest region in the world built URE’s third electric car: the URE07.
The main improvement in the URE07 is an all-new powertrain,
focusing on reliability and efficiency. With a single 100 kW electric
motor with an in-line planetary gear set and differential, the car will
prove to get the most out of the tires. Whilst the focus was on the
powertrain, the development of custom tires continued. With a self
developed rain tire profile, the car will prove to be competitive in
rainy conditions. By close cooperation with partners, reliable components have been produced whilst reducing the overall URE07
weight significantly. Let’s race!

After developing five combustion race cars, consequently following
the motto “Where there’s a team there’s a way”, this year’s Racetech Racing Team took off in the new direction of electrical racing.
Studying at a University of Mining and Technology, one focus set on
material science, 51 students walked the extra mile to collect the
additional knowledge to realise the project. As in previous seasons
our team concentrated on the use of advanced materials and manufacturing methods. A prominent demonstration of this attitude
is both, our hybrid body shell made of magnesium and NFK as
well as our impressive casted components such as the gearbox
housing and multifunctional motor mounting. We furthermore kept
the ambition to fabricate as many parts as possible on our own. A
great Thanks to our sponsors, families and alumni. We are proud
to participate with our first electrical race car in this year’s competition and wish all teams a successful and unforgettable event
season 2012.

The EGN 12 will be the debuting car of the Hamburg University
Of Technology. The newly established team has been founded in
May 2011 and managed to develop and assemble its electric
vehicle within a single year. The car itself weighs about 290kg and
contains different key technologies for example torque vectoring,
an innovative on-board communication system, which enables easy
communication with smart phones and the option of using e-call
in case of an emergency. For parts of the body shell the superficial structure of a shark’s skin will be applied to optimize the air
flow. Two 35kW EMRAX-Motors, which were originally designed
for gliding airplanes are used on the rear axles to power the back
wheels via a gear of 2:1. The motors can turn up to 3000rpm
with a maximum torque of 220nm – and all at 12kg each. Even
though the season 2012 is the team’s first Formula Student
season the team managed to build a technologically developed car,
it can accelerate from 0-100km/h in about 4s.

Being a team of about 60 students, KA-RaceIng builds two cars
every year: one with an electric drivetrain and one with a combustion engine. Starting in autumn with conception and design, we set
a tight production schedule to present our new cars in April. The
KIT12e is our 3rd electric car and combines the best of new ideas
and tested concepts. As we are building two cars, we develop several parts which meet the requirements of both cars and improve
testing time and manufacturing effort. The KIT12e is a significant
improvement which is based on the knowledge earned from overall
9 vehicles developed over the last years. We refined many of the
established concepts of the KIT11e and thus achieved a well designed vehicle which should support us in accomplishing our aim to
score as many points as possible and reach a top ranking overall.
We would like to thank all supporters and are looking forward to
an exciting event in Hockenheim.

At the 2011 event we started in the FSE with our first car ever.
This year our first goal was to reduce the weight of our car. We
gained a lot of experience with our first car and so we try to
improve the car in all components. Our „eR12“ has two permanent
excited water cooled synchronous motors. The housing of the
motors and the planetary gear box is self-developed. Each motor
has a maximum torque of 60 Nm and continuous power of 12 kW.
The accumulator has an overall capacity of 6.0 kWh and a nominal
voltage of 530 V. In this car we will use torque vectoring and a
racing ABS to improve the handling of the car.

Formula Group T was founded in the summer of 2011 and consists of 16 Master students in Engineering. In the car, which is
called Areion, the team has implemented three innovative technologies. The first one is the use of state-of-the-art thermoplastic
biocomposites. Within an European Research project, the team
developed a biocomposite race seat for Areion. This seat will be
the demonstrator of this project. Throughout our car, you will
notice an intensive use of additive manufacturing for the fabrication of complex, functional and lightweight components, in both
plastic and metals. Formula Group T has used this technology for
producing the body and several parts of the suspension. Thirdly,
the electric drivetrain is a technological masterpiece. Beside the
use of a powerful motor we developed a contactor mechanism that
can change between “wye-delta” in less than 1/10th of a second
while driving. In this way, both maximum performance and optimal
efficiency are possible.

The Formule Électrique de Polytechnique Montréal is a new small
(±8 members) team founded in 2009. We chose the FSG 2012 to
be our first competition ever because of the high concentration of
heavily qualified judges and organizers, the presence of the world‘s
best teams, for the incredible presence of sponsors, for the red
shirts (!) and because amazing atmosphere on and around of the
Hockenheimring. We are apparently the first American (read North
+ South American) team trying to compete in an Formula SAE/Student Electric outside the Americas! Ouf! We believe in the learning
experience of the electric vehicles design and of its world‘s impact.
We decided to give away the totality of our designs to the community through opensource licences in order to allow a maximum of
collaboration and to extend the learning experience. Our goal: to
reduce GHGs. Our lever: the transportation electrification education. „Well done is better than well said“ - B. Franklin

In 2002 TUfast was founded and in 2010 TUfast e-Technology,
therefore we are celebrating ten years of TUfast and our second
formula student race car with electric engine, the eb012. Its
predecessor was very successful and the overall car concept was
well balanced but the car was quite heavy. The eb012 is about
60kg lighter then its predecessor, this was possible by using new
lighter electric motors, self developed motor controllers, a smaller
accumulator, a new lighter monocoque and for the first time on a
TUfast car 10“ wheels. If want to learn more about TUfast and the
eb012, just come and visit us in our pit or on the campground and
have a chat about our favorite theme. And don‘t forget to have a
look at TUfast Racing Team and the nb012.

municHMotorsport 1 team – 2 cars. 2012 is year number 7
for the municHMotorsport team from the UAS Munich and year
3 competing in Formula Student Electric as well as in Formula
Student Combustion. This season our overall slogan is “1 team – 2
cars” which outlines the strong connection of the combustion and
the electric team. The 2012 FSE car, our PWe3.12 focuses on a
massive weight reduction compared to the 2011 vehicle. Therefore we use a carbon fibre monocoque combined with our well developed suspension and two light weight DC motors - one for each
rear wheel. Thanks to our university and the numerous sponsors
and supporters this season we are looking forward to the FSG
competition in August and are keen on meeting all our friends from
other teams again. Passion is what makes the Formula Student so
special. This is why our cars are named PassionWorks!

This year‘s car is the 5th generation of Viking cars. Up until now
the team has been using combustion engines, but this year an
electric car has been constructed. The new drivetrain meant that
a lot of the practices and technologies used in earlier cars could
not be used. That is why this years project called for a whole new
level of innovation. SDU Vikings has always been very keen to
develop its own solutions and avoid plug and play solutions. The
name SDU Vikings was originally chosen, to tie the team together.
There have always been a large number of exchange students on
the team. The vikings was some of the few things the foreign students knew about Denmark, so to define the identity of the team,
the name SDU Vikings was chosen as a tribute to our northern
ancestors. This keept the spirit high and the team set out to conquer the world... of racing! The fact that the Viking looked like an
old viking ship with its bodywork of wood, was actually just a funny
coincidence.

The Green Emerald is the second full electric car from the Ignition
Racing Team electric. With a team of about 40 enthusiastic students we use the opportunity to improve a lot since the forerunner
of 2011. For this year‘s development the design goals of overriding
importance were reliability and simplicity. Based on experiences of
recent years we had the aim to build a sophisticated car with great
capabilities of development. Therefore we reorganized the tractive
system by reducing the number of components forcefully. Another
important goal was a weight reduction of the vehicle. We strived
for a mass reduction of 20% in comparison to the last year’s car.
This design goal could be undercut with a total mass of 242kg.
In addition to the mass reduction we wanted to make the car
much more compact. Hence we reduced the wheelbase and put
the driver’s seat more upright. Last but not least we would like to
thank all supporters. We are looking forward to an exciting event
in Hockenheim.

Global Formula Racing is the first international collaboration of
its kind in the history of both, the US-based Formula SAE and the
EU-based Formula Student programs. The former BA-Racing-Team
from Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg (DHBW) and the
Beaver Racing team from Oregon State University (OSU) have combined forces to compete as a single entity 2010. The two universities share physical and intellectual resources by using advanced
communication-technology to create a highly competitive vehicle.
Design, manufacturing, and testing occur simultaneously at both
schools. The supply chain management is unique in Formula Student and, as well as the English language, the team language, very
important for cross-border cooperation. The 2010 car laid down a
foundation, that since, is being continuously improved. In 2012 we
will, for the second time, build an combustion car at OSU and an
electrical car at DHBW. In 2012, we will reconfirm our successful
seasons from the past two years.

The regenics Formula Student Electric Team of the University of
Applied Sciences (UAS) in Regensburg was founded in 2010 by the
experienced team members out of the Formula Student Combustion Team at the UAS Regensburg. We are very proud to integrate
over 50 members from nearly all faculties of the university in one
team. Every team member is part of a subteam and has clearly
defined tasks for which he is fully responsible. This season we
will participate the second time in the competition and we have
learned from the past difficulties. One technical highlight of our
‚RP12e‘ is the monocoque and the lithium polymer batteries which
provide the lightness of our car. An additional advantage of the
monocoque is an enhanced safety for the driver. Due to the two
water-cooled, permanent exited synchronous motors we can gain a
peak torque of more than 500 Nm per wheel controlled by a selfbuild ECU. We are looking forward to meet the other teams and to
have a great competition!

The Lessius Racing Team is the first Belgian Formula student team
founded in 2009. The team is connected to UAS Lessius Mechelen - Campus de Nayer, situated in Sint-Katelijne-Waver, Belgium.
For our second fully-built car we‘ve decided to go electric. This
choice was made because we believe electric drivetrains are the
future and we want to make the students accustomed with this
green technology. The team also managed to spread the bio-story
over other components of the car. Full bio-composite bodypanels
and floor-elements are used. The manufacturing process of the
uprights is also more eco-friendly. The car is put together by about
20 students from the engineering department and about the same
number of students from the technology department. They’ve
worked hard since the ending of last school year to finish the
design and fabrication on time to compete in Formula Student UK
and Formula Student Germany. We‘d like to thank all our sponsors
for their financial and material support.

This season KTH Racing, the FS-team of the Royal Institute of
Technology Stockholm, designed and engineered its 9th car so
far, the R9e. The highly motivated and multinational team from
all levels of university education decided to completely start from
scratch to set a sustainable basis for the next years. The design
goals of the R9e were an agile and easy-to-drive racing car, which
was achieved by a low inertia and a low centre of gravity. Contrary
to the last year, the electric drivetrain is driven by two AC motors,
that deliver 85kW peak power. The purchased build-in motors are
integrated in a fully self-developed motor housing that is attached
to a self-developed two stage gear box. The powertrain represents a fully integrated and lightweight unit delivering independent
torques to each of the rear wheel, managed by a torque vectoring
system. KTH Racing want to thank all sponsors and collaborators
and is looking forward to having a successful competition on Hockenheim this summer.

The DHBW Engineering Formula Student Team from the Cooperate
State University Baden-Württemberg was founded in 2008 and
already passed three successful seasons with a combustion car.
The overall victory in Barcelona was a dignified ending of the combustion era and the development of the first electric car started in
September 2011. Thanks to our sponsors we are now proud to
present our eSleek12. The totally new electric drivetrain consists
out of 2 synchronous machines with a 2-stage gearbox, very lightweight power electronics and a modular battery consisting of 400
single cells. Our tubular space frame and suspension were further
optimized and a significant weight reduction of more than 10 kg
could be reached. We are looking forward to an interesting season
and wish all teams good luck.

After two successful cars - E0711-1 and E0711-2 - the GreenTeam has been dedicated to design a completly new electric racing
car with a higher power to weight ratio and a more innovative
concept. The new E0711-3 is characterized by a hybrid way of
construction. The two most striking examples are the frame construction and the wheels. The forward section is a CFRP-monocoque
with aluminum honeycomb in sandwich construction. The rear end
is a tubular steel space frame. Especially the self-designed wheels:
the rim well is made of CFRP, which is screwed with the aluminum
rim star. With these methods we succeeded that the E0711-3 is
14 % (30 kg) lighter than the E0711-2. Now is the time that the
E0711-3 puts his ability to the test at the Hockenheimring (Germany), at the Redbull-Racing-Ring (Austria) and at the CatalunyaCircuit (Spain).

You have a Déjá-vu? Maybe it is because the Scuderia Mensa HS
RheinMain Racing Team now participates for its fifth season at the
FSG Events and grows in members and experiences every year.
The mix of a rising competence in engineering design and marketing activities leads to more confidence from our supporters. After
three seasons of gasoline powered cars you might remember the
yellow flash from Ruesselsheim with the 65. Those days have been
noisy! Since 2011 Racing became quite silent in the RheinMain
area. An electric powertrain concept gave the opportunity to the
students to learn today what will fulfill their future. With state of
the art technique the SPR11E has been a bench to figure out how
systems like those have to be engineered. This year’s SPR12E will
be more than 100 kg lighter, even more reliable, comfortable and
better in performance with active differential (torque vectoring) and
traction control. Most of these systems are primarily self-made
designed by the team.

As founding member of the Formula Student Electric class, the
AMZ has always been aiming to compete with the front-running
combustion cars. After a successful season in 2011, the only
Swiss team is trying to improve the whole car, screw by screw.
The key features of umbrail, the 2012 car, are a very lightweight
single-piece CFRP monocoque (14kg with the aluminum front roll
hoop) and the self-developed engines (AMZ M2). The whole car
shrunk about five centimetres in comparison to last year‘s car.
The new suspension layout consists of 10inch hybrid rims (carbon
shells, aluminum centers), a self-designed steering system and
tailor made air springs and dampers. Additionally the car is fitted
with a complete aerodynamic package to improve longitudinal and
lateral acceleration. Nevertheless, the car weighs about 10kg less
than its predecessor. A total of 175kg. We are looking forward to
competing in FSE 2012 and want to improve last year‘s performance!

„Innovation meets Tradition” - if you look at Zwickau’s automotive history you can easily find out why we picked out this slogan
for our team. Zwickau is the birth place of Horch and Audi, and
furthermore in the 1930s, it was the domicile of the Auto Union
race cars which dominated the race tracks in Europe. Almost 70
years later our WHZ Racing Team was founded. Now in 2012, we
bring our third full electric car to the tracks. The FP612e (code
name: eMil) is a further development of last year’s successful car,
concentrating on less weight, less consumption. We created a fast
and dynamic car with four independent motors and self-developed
electronic components. Nowadays, our team consists of about
60 members from a variety of faculties of the UAS Zwickau. This
team has worked hard and efficiently to upgrade its results for the
season 2012. The FSE opens a door to a new dimension of racing
- so let us all have fun and create the future together.
