Besides the engineering and racing part, the FS is also about students developing other skills such as designing, presenting and making a business case. The idea of the business case is that you try to make a car for the market of non-professional hobby racers.
The race has three classes, combustion, electric and driverless. We are now going to set up a new classification, the hydrogen classification. This year we will be the only one and we hope to pave the way for other teams to switch or start with hydrogen.
“I can speak from personal experience when I say that practical experience is essential for a good engineering foundation. Formula Student combines the practical applications with the academic study of the students, but also teaches the students important skills such as project management, dealing with finances and teamwork.”
This year will be the 6th edition of Formula Student Netherlands. This will be at TT Assen, the home of Motor GP. This will be the first venue where we will show our new hydrogen FS car. Besides us, there will be 50 other teams from three different continents.

The Formula Student Germany is considered the world championship in the Formula Student race! It is the largest in the world and is held on the Hockenheim circuit. Formula 1 was held here until 2019. Almost all FS teams want to take part, but in the end “only” 100 are allowed to do so.
