Martin Matzer

Dear friends of Formula Student Austria,

It is a great pleasure for me to welcome all of you to this

years’ Formula Student Austria (FSA) event.

This year FSA is held for the 6th time, and for the 4th time

at the great Red Bull Ring. As a former formula student

team member it is great to see the world from

the other side.

Since Formula 1 returned this year after a long

break without Austria on the calendar, the Red

Bull Ring has been expanded in many ways -

we are really happy to use this great venue for

our competition. At this point I want everyone to

thank our partner, Projekt Spielberg who has

helped us set up this great event.

As already mentioned above, it is necessary to have partners

for an event like this. Without all our partners, all of

this would not be possible. So THANK YOU VERY MUCH for

your great support. It is great to work with all of you.

Even with the best partner I could not run this event by

myself. Therefore FSA has its steering committee which

simply consists of five people. So many thanks to Christoph

Lorenzutti, Ralph Moser, Michael Müller and Lukas

Raschendorfer for all the work you put into this event throughout

the last year. It is great to have you as colleagues

as well as friends.

But running this event with just 5 people is also not possible.

I would like to also thank all our staff members and judges.

It is great to see so many different former participants

from formula student teams and different companies from

countries all over the world supporting this event with

their passion.

Last but not least I want to thank all of you

teams who are coming every year and make

this event one of the best in the world. I hope

you will have good time and can enjoy this

event and our great country. To all team members

I can recommend talking to our sponsors,

because they are looking for new employees

and this could be great opportunity for you to

start your work-life after finishing university. It

will be a win-win situation for you and our partners - so

take your chances.

In the end, all I can say is THANK YOU to all our supporters

and helpers. Good luck and much success to all the teams,

may we all have great time.

Best regards and keep on racing,

Martin Matzer

Ralph Moser

As FSA‘s tame IT professional, Ralph makes sure that all

the electronic systems at the event, from timing to team

internet, play nice. During the rest of the year his responsibility

is recruiting the staff and judges, without whom this

FSA would not be possible.

Lukas joined FSA and is now responsible for the rules,

also taking FSA‘s chair in the FSAE world committee.

An engineer by day, a designer by night he also creates

most of FSA‘s graphical designs.

A whole lot of Volunteers | Making FSA happen

Five guys may be enough to organize the event, but to actually

run the event a much greater number of people is

needed. This is where all of our red-shirted volunteers

step in and take over all the tasks from scrutineering to

fetching the cones that were ungently removed from their


Like the steering committee, they are all volunteers, dedicating

their free time and holidays to providing you a great

Formula Student

Scope and Martin History Matzer

„The Formula SAE ® Series competitions challenge

teams of university undergraduate and graduate students

to conceive, design, fabricate, develop and compete

with small, formula style, vehicles.“

Formula SAE Rule A1.1: Competition Objective

The roots of formula student lie in 1970s Texas, as a

variant to the already existing Mini Baja (competition

for lawnmower-powered offroad vehicles). The idea

resonated well and after a few establishing years, Formula

SAE was introduced as a design competition with a very

open ruleset and also much more „race“ appeal since the

cars were allowed to have engines with siginficant power

comapred to the spec‘d single cylinders in Baja.

The event quickly picked up momentum, and in 1998 it

made the jump over the big pond when Formula Student

UK was the first non-US competition to be held. Soon other

followed and today there are eight official competitions all

over the World:

• Formula SAE Michigan

• Formula SAE Lincoln

• Formula SAE Australasia

• Formula Student Austria

• Formula SAE Brazil

• Formula Student Germany

• Formula SAE Italy

• Formula Student (UK)

Formula Student Austria was founded in 2009 by alumni

of both UAS and TU Graz. The European Formula Student

Scene has been growing rapidly since around 2007 and

there was not only room but need for another competition

besides UK, Germany and Italy. The reception of the event

was quite good, so over the years it grew to its present

size of 42 participants, also necessitating the move from

the Wachauring in Melk to the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.

Also , it was one of the first events to allow the 2010-introduced

Formula student vehicles to compete, for some

years even against each other. Starting 2014, however,

this was dropped and replaced by a split scoring with two

classes (Combustion/Electric) due to the big development

advances seen in electric vehicles, making them all but

impossible to beat in some aspects.

So what is it all about? Formula Student is an engineering

Design competition that should teach engineering

students some real-world skills relevant to the automotive

and other industries. To sucessfully compete, a team

has to delve into research, design, manufacturing, testing,

developing, marketing, management and finances - this

favors or even requires the formation of multi-disciplinary

teams. This and the fact that Formula Student is as much

a project management exercise as it is an engineering

challenge, it teaches the competitors a valuable and industry-appreciated

combination of soft- and hard skills.

The vehicle itself is governed by a set of internationally

agreed upon rules. The rules have grown pretty complex

over the years (the rule book is now larger than the one for

F1), so here are the defining characteristics:


• Open-Wheel, Open-Monocoque, Formula-style body

• four wheels

• aerodynamic devices are limited in size

C - Powertrain:

• max. 610 cc four-stroke piston engine

• 20mm Air restrictor

• turbo/supercharging is allowed


• any number of motors and driven wheels

• 85kw peak system power

Spielberg 2014 | Formula Student Austria | 11


The first of the so-called Dynamic Disciplines is the Acceleration.

The car has to accelerate from a standstill and cover

a distance of 75 meters a quickly as possible. Due to a high

power to weight ratio, FSAE cars can do this in well below

four seconds with terminal speeds of well over 100 kph, outrunning

almost all road-going sportscars. Each team can

have two drivers, each of them doing two runs.

Maximum Score: 75

2013 Winner: AMZ Racing (ETH Zürich)

In the Skid Pad event the lateral ability of the car is tested on

a figure-eight course. After entering the course, the driver

he has to go round the right circle (right turn) two times, then

round the left circle (left turn) two times - the time for the second

lap of each circle is used to determine the score. Again,

each team has 4 runs split among two drivers.

Maximum Score: 75

2013 Winner: AMZ Racing (ETH Zürich)

The Autcross track is a handling course consisting of turns,

hairpins, straights and slaloms and is roughly 1000 meters

long. Each car enters the track on its own and will do a single

“hot lap“ of the course.

The track is marked using small traffic cones which will,

when hit, result in a two-second penalty.

Each team has two runs for each of their two drivers.

Maximum score: 100

2013 Winner: TUfast Racing Team (TU Munich)

The Endurance race takes part on a closed autocross course

over a distance of 22km. At half-time a driver change is performed

and the car has to perform a hot restart. This event

is driven with multiple cars on the course but overtakes are

performed in special two-lane overtaking zones.

The fuel/energy consumption as well as the laptimes during

the Endurance are used to calculate the Efficiency score.

Maximum Score: 325 (Endurance) / 100 (Efficiency)

2013 Winner Endurance: TUfast Racing Team (TU Munich)

2013 Winner Effy: Lions Racing Team (TU Braunschweig)

12 | Formula Student Austria | Spielberg 2014

The most important one of the Statics is the Engineering

Design Event. During the judging the team has to present

their car to a group of automotive and racing experts. These

judges will check if the design goals have been met, if the

team members understand their design and if it has been

executed well.

Maximum Score: 150

2013 Winner: AMZ Racing (ETH Zürich)

For the Cost Event, the teams have to submit a detailed Bill of

materials up front. At the event, their correctness and completenessis

checked an the team is presented with an additional

cost-related task.

During the Presentation Event, the teams have to present a

business plan for selling their design to fictional investors.

Maximum Score: 100 (Cost) / 75 (Business)

2013 Cost Winner: Rennteam Uni Stuttgart

2013 Presentation Winner: DUT Racing (TU Delft)

When all the events are over, the scores are added up and

the Winner Over All is determined. Additionally, prices are

given to the best teams in each discipline. From 2014 on, the

scoring is split between cars with electric and combustion


Maximum Score: 1000

2013 Winners: 1. AMZ Racing (ETH Zürich)

Representing the next step in the evolution of formula student

featuring the TANKIA 2014.

Emerged out of the finest racing university of Graz

this beast shall be a challenge to be tamed for

other teams.

Following the inventive ideas of the predecessor

team, the newest generation of the TANKIA family

has been given an overall renewal, making it not

only one of the fastest but also the most

aerodynamic of its kind.

Following the gentle curves of the carbon fibre monocoque,

past those hard hollow tubes of the suspension stretching

out to the edge of the TANKIA 2014 - despite this being less

than four metres in length - that’s where you might find the

secret of an unique example of its kind.

Driven neither by petrol nor by gas but by the rhythm of

Helene Fischer.

Summing up: the Tankia 2014 a.k.a. Helene is powered by

an optimized single-cylinder engine, an overall updated aerodynamic chassis as well as a failure-proof

electronic system and a suspension with a performance from your wildest dreams.

FH Campus Wien

Car#, Country, OS.car Racing University, Team Teamname

This car is the first from the FH Campus Vienna and is called „CR-

113“. At the very beginning we started with a simple brainstorming to

determine what we exactly want to built.

First we started to build a seat box made of ply-wood. It was

constructed in order to determine the space required for the driver and

the exact locations for the pedal box and seat location. Based on the

rules, the geometry of the frame could be specified.

For our suspension design we used most of the parts out of

stock. The reason was to ensure both, reliability and

feasibility of the suspension.

To meet our design goals of reliability and feasibility of the

engine assembly following features were selected and

carried out: The drivetrain was built with standard

components. So we could meet our overall design goals.

As defined in our design goals the design of the

electronics is kept as simple as possible.

Wire harness: the wiring takes into account all

necessary components that need to be supplied with

electricity or any signal-processing components. It was

designed in CAD and optimized during manufacturing.

Instrumentation: All the necessary information such as

current gear, neutral or oil temperature is displayed via LED lamps in the cockpit. Thus the aim of

feasibility could be easily realized.

Engine Management: We use a DTA S60 Pro ECU to manage the engine and its components.

Delft University of Technology Racing Team


The Delft University of Technology Racing Team consists of 80 team

members from eight different faculties of the university. After building ten

combustion cars the team decided to start building lightweight electric

cars. The team is divided into 5 technical departments and a management-team consisting of 4 people. The

newest car, the DUT14, can be described as an extremely lightweight four-wheel driven electric car

enhanced with aerodynamic devices, a slip ratio controller and a yaw rate controller. All four motors are

placed inside the wheels together with a one-stage planetary transmission. With the self-designed tyres the

team was able to fully optimize the wheel assembly and improve tyre behaviour. This year, aluminium

honeycomb is used as core material for the composite monocoque, reducing the weight of the chassis.

Based on wind tunnel tests and CFD calculations, 725 N of downforce at 60 km/h is achieved with a rear

wing, front wing, and diffuser.

Since the foundation in 2004, the Running Snail Racing

team is constructing and assembling a new race car in

their small university in the heart of Bavaria, Germany.

True to the motto „Innovation never stops“ , every year the team members are

coming up with new ideas, like the change from combustion to electric drive in 2013,

the construction of a CFK-based full monocoque instead of the steel frame, and last

but not least the centerless wheel drive. As the university is rather small, the

atmosphere is very familiar and the team spirit is an important feature.

With the new RS14, we took the (slightly adapted)

CFK monocoque and the electric drive train from the

RS13 as well as the unique centerless wheel from

the RS12. We created an even more amazing car by

combining the centerless wheel with the electric drive

train. Our electrical engineers constructed and

programmed the control unit themselves and make

sure this way that the car will go wherever the driver wants it to. We are looking

forward to let our RS14 run at Formula Student Austria and compete with other

and manufacturing new racer annually. During the year 2013 we changed from combustion racers to electric

racers. There are roughly twenty students who participate and about three of the students graduate from the

project annually.


Our electric racer’s frame was built using Ruukki’s steel tubes and Kevra’s composites for side impact

structure. For this year we are using Hoosier’s LC0 6.0 / 18.0 - 10 with 10” aluminum billet wheels.

Powertrain system is designed for two Emrax 207 electric motors. Torque is been delivered to the rear

wheels using timing belt operated reduction gear. Motor controllers for our racers come from MGM Compro

and are specially modified to fit our needs. Our

6.1kWh battery pack is monitored and controlled by

Orion BMS.

HPF014E’s body panels are made from aramid fibers

to get the best sustainability. For the first time in our

team’s history we designed and manufactured full

aerodynamic kit for the racer. Diffusor has been used

once before on our last combustion model HPF011.

The GreenTeam is driven by the deep

inward urge to always take a step further.

We never only develop the earlier cars, but

we take apart the whole construction and

try to innovate each part of the car - always

with a common goal in mind.

Our 5 th generation car was designed

to be faster, lighter and more efficient

than the Formula Student cars before. The

E0711-5 is powered by a light-weight fourwheel

drivetrain whose maximum total

power of 100 kW accelerates the racing car

from 0-100 km/h in less than 2.2 seconds.

By developing a new full monocoque we

could integrate each part of the car in our

vehicle CFD simulation to design a

completely aerodynamic shaped car. The

optimized full aerodynamic package and the

new delta shaped front wing guarantee the

desired downforce on track.

To reduce the centre of gravity

significantly we revised the packaging

concept of the accumulator and arranged it

as an external under tray. The implemented

electrical control units improve the driveability

of the E0711-5 with torque vectoring,

differential breaking and traction

control as well as recuperation.

E0711-5 – Highlights

Recuperation // Torque vectoring // Four-wheel-drive // Traction control // Weight: 164 kg

Road Arrow is the first and only Formula Student team in Serbia, and we

are extremely proud of that fact. We are representing the University of

Belgrade since November 2010, with the team that comprises of all the

best, smartest, and generally coolest engineering students from five

faculties, which makes our team very rounded-up concerning all the

necessary (formula designing and manufacturing) and not-necessary (barbecuing) skills. The core principles

of our team are professionalism, hard work and devotion, although we also have a ‘party side' – we do live in

Belgrade, one of the greatest party cities in the world. We are especially proud to say that we are very fast

learners, and there is no limit or challenge that we can't overcome as a team. This fact is aplified by the fact

that our engineers do most of the work themselves, from studying the principles for solving the given problem

to actually solving it – perfectly. So, you can see that we will be a serious challenge on and off the track. This

season you can meet us in FS Austria in our debut in Ostereich, and FS Italy, where we are defending our

best result – 10th place overall. You can easily recognize us by great mood and friendly attitude, very very

loud talking (borderline shouting),

Serbian folk music, red-blue-white

colours, and obvious ingenuity.

Also, we are eager to learn as much

as we can from all of you guys – the

best and brightest in the world.

This year we participate at the Red Bull Ring for the first time. With our third car, called „Elinor“ we are

looking forward to the challenge on a new racetrack.

For being competitive, we strengthened our design focus on ligthweight solutions. Although we added an

aerodynamic package we were able to reduce the weight significantly. Additional, elaborated electronic

driver assistance systems enhance the driving performance.

design an entirely new car. For the chassis, a CFRP monocoque is used. The wheels are mounted

on a completely revised double wishbone suspension with a pullrod-actuated damping system and

carbon fiber anti-roll-bars and are driven through a new rear-middle-positioned drivetrain with 2

spur gears and 2 Continenal BAS+ motors. With our new telemetry system and the integrated

Raspberry PI we will be able to control all functions of

our car in real time. For power supply an 8.7 kWh

battery package with LIP-cells was fit to Jenny6e. To

keep the car on the ground, an all-new aeropackage

with front and rear wings, sidepods and an undertray

with splitter was designed. Those and many additional

changes will make FF06 ready to race all over Europe!

Coming from the capital of Germany

from the Technische Universität Berlin

(Berlin Institute of Technology) FaST-

TUBe is now in its ninth season and

ready to continue its run in successfully

engineering, constructing and racing

in the Formula Student.

With around 40 students

from all different

majors and interests,

FaSTTUBe is steadily

working on perfecting

their racecar and its

performance. But not

only technical skills are

required to be a part

of FaSTTUBe. A wide

range of skills is necessary

when it comes to

putting all the pieces together

and working towards a goal as

a team and as a unit. At FaSTTUBe it’s

all about teamwork. Everybody is aware

of their own value for the team and

the responsibility they have for its success.

Furthermore the combination of

the skills and the knowledge acquired

during the courses at the Berlin Institute

of Technology and actually putting

this knowledge to work in the garage

and meeting rooms of FaSTTUBe is inevitable.

Every year FaSTTUBe puts great effort

in not only following up the good results

from previous years, but also to

further improve the benchmarks set

in the racing but also in the construction

and marketing categories. The

strive for success is what unites everybody

at FaSTTUBe and is the motor

that keeps the team growing. Over the

past few years many alumni have begun

their working careers at all kinds

of manufactures and different companies,

all of whom were either sponsors

for FaSTTUBe or willing to help in the

not always easy challenge of successfully

constructing and building a new

FaSTTUBe racecar.

All in all FaSTTUBe is a highly motivated

racing team made up of individuals

who not only share a passion for

racing but also a motivation to work

towards success as a team. All of us are

looking forward to having a great time

at Formula Student Austria this year.

We hope to meet other teams from all

over the world to share our passion, to

talk about racing and technology and


this beautiful sport!

BGR ben gurion racing

Car 55, Israel, Ben Gurion University, BGR

“A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien

We, Ben Gurion racing, from Ben Gurion

University in Israel, feel that such is our

story. We come from a small country with

no automotive industry nor race tracks

and extremely draconian legislation

against motor sports.

Team BGR is the very first FSAE team in

Israel - 4 years ago we have created

something unheard of in Israel and are

now leading the field of racecar

manufacture domestically. Our success

has paved the way for other universities

in Israel to launch their own FSAE

projects. Last year, 3 teams raced in FSAE Italy alone. We believe that by reaching a high position in worldwide

rankings we will leverage our achievements to promote motor sports in our country and possibly develop the

automotive industry. Therefore, success for us is also a mission.

Our group consists of 34 students divided into 16 different teams. Each team has its own freedom of action

defined within the limits & restrictions of the team’s guidelines, because in this way the team members can

express their own personal talents best. As expected from a team whose aspirations are high, for the first time

in Israel, we have put our best efforts into producing the front chassis from Carbon fibers laminates instead of

steel tubing. Also, the gearbox has been redesigned and custom manufactured.

We believe the most important ingredients for success are courage, innovation, work ethics and black coffee.

Gallons of black coffee. With no sugar. This is an opportunity for you to meet the Israeli team. Our mentality

is very clear. Serious when required and frivolous when we can.

About the Team

The TU Darmstadt Racing Team (DART) has been found 2005, being at FSG 2006 with their

first car, the alpha2006. In 2012 the team made the change in starting the development of

an electrical powertrain. After participating in last year´s FS Austria 2013 we are here for the

second time as an electrical team. Over 30 highly motivated students from various fields of

study have worked on this year’s car, the Iota2014. The foundation therefor has been set 10

months ago with the attempt of a fully new designed car and a two motor concept.

the iota2014

By creating a completely new chassis and

suspension, we decided to take the

know-how from last year`s electrical

powertrain and start with a new

packaging. We set our focus on a twomotor

concept, in order to apply an

electronic torque vectoring. Therefor the

main components of our drive train, the

motors and a gear box, have been selfdesigned.

Also the capacity of the battery

has been set to a sustainable standard to get the possibility to achieve endurance lap times comparable to

the autocross event. Following last year’s attempts of an aerodynamic front- and rearwing, we are now

introducing a further optimized aerodynamic package with a DRS system.

Despite all these features our main goal was to reduce the weight of the car to minimum in team history.

DART-Racing is looking forward to an interesting and hopefully successful Formula Student Austria

competition. Therefor we would like to thank all sponsors and supporters who make the participation in

Formula Student Events possible.

We are the UPBracing Team e.V., a

team consisting of aspiring mechanical

engineers, electrical engineers,

industrial engineers, informatics and

international economists studying at

the University of Paderborn. Our team

was founded in 2006 and ever since

has grown in several ways. We are a

self-organised Formula student Team

with young highly motivated members.

At this point we purposely do not want

to illustrate our whole team’s history

but would like to mention some

highlights and recent developments. Our aspirations have grown with the competition which is why

this season was characterised by major changes.

The PX214 is the eighths step in the ongoing process of increasing the performance of our cars.

This year our car comes with a new aerodynamic package, 10” tires and a hybrid chassis. By

means of those new parts we are going to improve the cornering speed of the PX214 by increasing

the maximum transmittable lateral force.

Following the famous slogan ‘to finish

first you have to finish first’ the main goal

was to increase the reliability of our car

while maintaining low weight and high

efficiency. We have also put a lot of

effort in the analysis of the vehicle

dynamics with a self-developed

measurement system. Our passion for

motorsports and engineering motivates

us to go the extra mile and act beyond

our obligations. The PX214 is a further

milestone in the history of the UPBracing

Team. In the long run we want to

compete with the best teams around the world.

Für das erste E-Auto

stand ein Konzept im

Vordergrund der Entwicklung,

das eine solide

Grundlage für die erfolgreiche

Teilnahme an allen

dynamischen Disziplinen

der “Formula Student

Electric” (FSE) bietet und

zugleich die Basis für zukünftige


darstellen kann.

Enge Kurven und kurze Sprints prägen die Streckenführung des Wettbewerbs. Um

diesen Eigenschaften der dynamischen Disziplinen Rechnung zu tragen, zielte die Auslegung

des Fahrzeugs auf eine maximale Elastizität ab. Neben der Fahrdynamik war

auch die Dauerfestigkeit ein wichtiger Aspekt, um bei der “Endurance” konkurrenzfähig

zu sein. Nur wer seinen Formelwagen ideal auf die unterschiedlichen Disziplinen abstimmt,

kann gute Ergebnisse einfahren und sich erfolgreich behaupten.

In den kommenden Jahren wollten wir unser Fahrzeug schrittweise um komplexere

Konzepte erweitern. Dazu gehören beispielsweise Bremskraftrückgewinnung und die

Nutzung von Torque Vectoring bei der Motoransteuerung, sowie die weitere Gewichtsreduktion

durch Leichtbau. Bei Optimierungen im Bereich des Fahrwerks greifen wir auf

ein Telemetrie-System zurück, das wir selbst entwickeln und kontinuierlich ausbauen.

Dabei wird die effiziente Nutzung der Erfahrungen

und Erkenntnissen aus unseren

ersten beiden FSE-Saisons eine wesentliche

Rolle spielen. Denn es gilt nicht nur,

innovative Neuerungen zu integrieren, sondern

auch erkannte Defizite auszumerzen.

Deshalb legen wir besonderen Wert auf Dokumentation

und Wissensweitergabe.

For the current car, the “C-14 Gepard” the team converts three main

alterations at the suspension, the chassis and the new aerodynamic


Constructing the components as small as possible is one of the rule

to minimize weight. The switch from 13” to 10” rims was the first

decision at the suspension, which affects all other parts. Together

C-14 Gepard front view

with materials, who allows extreme lightweight designs the

suspension was designed for a car with aerodynamic forces at both axles. The two wings are designed with two

selective adjustable flaps and one main profile, getting the optimal downforce by maintaining a reasonable dragcoefficient

in each disciplines of the Formula Student. The main design goal of this year chassis was to ensure

maximal torsional stiffness to optimize working conditions for the suspension. Therefore CAT-Racing designed their

first hybrid carbon fibre monocoque. The power of the 4-zylinder engine and the individual design of the cooling

system, the airbox with variable intake runners and the titanium exhaust system prepared the “C-14 Gepard” for all

driving situations. The electrical system was enhanced with a display with an integrated data-logging-module. This

system logs data from a variety of sensors like brake pressure, lambda sensor, coolant temperature.
