The snow is slowly melting, the air is getting warmer and the racecar is starting to look like a racecar.
Now here's the summary of the 2013 Formula Student Germany competition.
Today is a very important day; acceleration, autocross and the design finals.
We decide to use a safe technique and send our first driver as soon as we had the sun coming through the clouds and wait for our second driver to have more rubber on the track and a hotter tarmac.
The strategy seemed to work since we have the fastest single-cylinder time.
Then it was time for the autocross, the team prepared the car will the pilots were walking the track.
During our outing we managed the best time in autocross, but later on some teams managed to get better times. Still we managed to get a very good position and we're going to run pretty late during the evening for the endurance.
We are sorry for the lack of pictures, but they will be uploaded soon.
Today there’s a lot of events: Business Presentation, Cost, Design and Wetpad (wet Skidpad). We started this stressfull day with the design.
As promise here’s a tour of the FSG 2013 paddocks, but before a quick bit about our day at the Hockenheimring
Today is the first big test for all the teams here at Formula Student Germany, the technical inspection. During this inspection all the rules are check as well as some security points in order to give the car a right to be driven on the track.
