Race agenda

Formula Student (FS) is an international engineering design competition first held by the Society of Automotive Engineers in 1979. The goal is to develop and provide a platform for student engineers to experience, build, and learn.With more than 300 teams worldwide, it is the most established educational engineering competition in Europe. The name says it all, but each team consists only of students from universities. Of course, the teams work together with companies, professionals and academics. It offers a unique way to test students’ theoretical knowledge in a practical context.

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.”

Ross Brawn,

Managing Director, Formula 1

FS Netherlands

This year will be the 7th edition of Formula Student Netherlands. This race is held at TT Assen, the home of Motor GP. Formula Student Netherlands will be the first race where we will test our car and finally be able to race with our car! Besides us, there will be 50 other teams from three different continents.

FS Germany

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