Dear Sponsors and Friends of the TUfast Racing Team,
Many of you have probably noticed that the coronavirus (Covid-19) now affects the whole life in Germany. It is everyone's responsibility to take care of the society and prevent it from spreading the virus. In particular, it is important to protect society's people at risk and thus accept several restrictions in social life.
In this situation, the Bavarian government announced that all events and the operation of all facilities that do not serve everyday activities are prohibited.
This restriction includes also the TUfast Racing Team. From March 17th, 2020 all our rooms and facilities are closed until April 19th, 2020.
During this period, we have to make the best out of the situation and try to continue with all activities that can be done in home office.
Additionally, all Formula Student competitions have made the announcement to cancel their events. (The statement of FSG: https://www.formulastudent.de/pr/news/details/article/no-formula-student-germany-competition-in-2020/)
As the main motivation of our project is the experience we gain and the passion for motorsport, we have decided to continue building our cars as soon as the situation allows. Our goal is to finish the cars eb020 and db020 this summer.
Unfortunately, we have to announce that the Roll-out on the 8th of May is canceled. Due to the social responsibility as a university association we cannot continue planning with this date. As soon as we have further information regarding a replacement date or event we will inform you.
At the moment we are discussing the possibilities of organizing our own testing event with sponsors and friends and the opportunities of increasing our online activities.
The next months will definitely be a tough period for all of us, but together we are able to deal with it.
In case you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
With our newsletter we will keep you up to date on all developments.
Your TUfast Racing Team
