Dear Sponsors and Friends of the TUfast Racing Team,
the past weekend was an incredible one with a victory of FS Online with our electric team.
On Saturday, 8th of August, the Formula Student Online competition took place. The event was created by Formula Student East and Formula Student Netherlands to offer an alternative digital competition as the real competitions could not take place this summer.
Although it could not replace the real events, it was an amazing competition with an exciting program. The competition offered us the possibility to show our knowledge in Engineering Design and Business Plan, but also offered a fascinating atmosphere with simulator racing events, fun activities and interesting talks and presentations.
The competition took the whole Saturday and was streamed online. You can have a watch the recording on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RwY1cNMqMg&t=11375s.
I really would recommend your to have a look at the virtual autocross at time 01:44:53 and the eb business plan at 06:14:24.
We had a lot of fun during the whole day and in the end it became extremely exciting.
In the virtual dynamic disciplines for the electric team it was a difficult situation with a focus on drivers´ skills and a lot of good drivers from all the teams. Through the performance of our drivers Garvit and Dominik we scored a great 4th place.
Both business plan team did also a fantastic job, reached the finals and scored 4th.
With the new Concept Design Challenge where we had to develop new ideas and concepts for future energy storage solutions we scored with both cars 2nd.
The highlight of the day was the engineering design final in the afternoon where we could show our knowledge about different topics and our car in general. The driverless and the electric team showed an awesome performance and reached the first place in engineering design with the electric car and the third place with the driverless one.
With those fantastic results in all those disciplines we reached a first place overall with the electric team and the third place overall with the driverless team.
We congratulate Ecurie Aix Formula Student Team from RWTH Aachen and Dynamis PRC from Milano for exciting competition and the 2nd and 3rd place.
We are really proud of the whole team that even in those difficult times they showed an awesome performance and demonstrated how much we can achieve together.
In the name of the whole team I would also like to say a big thank you to our sponsors who have supported us throughout the year and made it possible to realize such a cool project together.
Last but not least we would also like to thank Formula Student Online who organized the event and put a lot of effort in offering us a great virtual competition.
Nevertheless, we are also looking forward to next year, when we will meet again in person at the real competitions.
I hope you all stay healthy and have a great summer.
Your TUfast Racing Team
