Attention all teams,

Dear friends of Formula Student Austria,

It‘s a party!

Formula Student Austria is celebrating its 10th anniversary

this year and we‘re thrilled to welcome you to the birthday


I 2008 a small group of Austria Formula Student

Alumni decided that it was time to host an

Austrian event. At that time Austria had three

rather successful teams (graz, the other graz

and tu Vienna) so having our own competition

seemed like the next step.

So, in the summer of 2009, the first Formula

Student Austria was held on the Wachauring, a

small rallycross & training track in Melk, lower


21 teams attended and it became clear that there was indeed

more than enough interest to warrant an additional

european event.

As 2010 marked the introduction of electric cars to FS it

also became clear that even the increased number of 27

teams would not cut it for the future. Our venue had become

too small for our needs.

Luckily, red Bull had just completed the work on the former

A1 ring in Spielberg - the track now known as red

Bull ring - and prepared for a grand opening in May 2011.

So Formula Student Austria, now with 32 teams, became

one of the first Motorsports events to use the freshly rebuilt

site and what can we say - we stayed ever since.

2012 we again grew to 42 teams and almost 1000 participants.

the next milestone was set in 2013 when we became official

part of the FSAe World Series (and also the last addition

till today), which also got us a seat on the international

rules committee where we could try and shape

the future of Formula Student as a whole.

the last big step was taken in 2017 when we

again expanded our grid to 50 spots ( = almost

1500 participants), which marks the current capacity

limit of the site (i.e. 1/2 of the pit lane), but

who knows what the future might bring ;-)

enough dwelling on the past, let‘s look forward

to a great event, a celebration of fun and passion

engineering, team spirit and cooperation past all borders.

A big thank you to all of our sponsors and partners, to all

the volunteers and judges and to the teams travelling from

everywhere between uS and Australia, between norway

and India, between estonia an Israel for making FSA a staple

in the Formula Student world, and a fun one at that.

Keep on racing,

Lukas raschendorfer

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)

Additionally, there a whole lot of unofficial events held

around the globe, e.g. in India, the netherlands, Hungary,the

Czech republic and many more.

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-Cockpit, Formula-style body

• four wheels

• aerodynamic devices are limited in size

C - powertrain:

• 20mm Air restrictor (19mm for e85)

• turbo/supercharging is allowed


• any number of motors and driven wheels

• 80kw peak system power

As originally intended, Fromula Student has become a major

source of highly qualified graduates in the engineering

world, focused but not limited to the automotive sector.

even in the highest classes of professional motorsports,

FS team jackets and memorabilia can be seen everywhere.

the unique compination of engineering and project management

skills required to complete and run an FS car

makes it a great preparation for real-world projects. this

is recognized by many businesses, making it an ideal stepping

stone from academics into an interesting rewarding

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

2017 Winner C: TU Graz

2017 Winner E: Uni Stuttgart (Greenteam)

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

2017 Winner C: UAS Coburg (CAT Racing)

2017 Winner E: UAS Munich (tuFast)

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

2017 Winner C: TUfast (TU Munich)

2017 Winner E: AMZ Racing (ETH Zürich)

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)

2017 Winner C: Rennteam Stuttgart / Akron

2017 Winner E: AMZ Racing (ETH Zürich

12 | Formula Student Austria | Spielberg 2018

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

2017 Winner C: Rennteam Stuttgart / Akron

2017 Winner E: TUfast (TU Munich)

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)

2017 Cost Winner C: TUfast (TU Munich)

2017 Presentation Winner C: KA raceing (KIT Karlsruhe)

2017 Cost Winner E: Barcelona

2017 Presentation Winner E: Uni Stuttgart (Greenteam)

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 was split between cars with electric and combustion


Maximum Score: 1000

2017 Winners C: 2017 Winners E:

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology



Hello together, we are KA-RaceIng and we want to say sorry

for this teampage. As always we decided to write this text one

hour before the deadline, just to realise that the deadline is two

days later, if we would just listen to our COO once …

“Calendar!” But enough of our ability to read dates, lets introduce our better half.

With our new combustion car, we tried to keep the lightweight

design of last year and bring more power by turbo charging our

single cylinder engine. Sadly we are neither really light, nor do we

have the most power. Besides our beer, we have one thing that

makes us special… our awarness of deadlines. Jokes aside, our

KIT18c is not only one of our earliest driving cars in the KA-

RaceIng history, but a complete revolution compared to the last

season. Our engine got an huge update with the comeback of our

beloved and missed friend: the turbocharger. Titanium welded

uprights and other optimisations saved us more than 4 kilogramms, our electronic team implemented a

brand new interface unit and the aerodynamic crew inceased the downforce by more than 12 percent.

As you see, we are a team, full of love for our project, passion

for motorsport but also the needed crazyiness and fun.

Although we are writing about a combustion car, we are “one

team - three cars”. Last year we were the only team with

three cars driving, this year we are back with three even better

ones, motivated to fight for first places all over again. Feel free

to visit us in our Pit, talk to us and you will realise that we are

happy students who enjoy each second we can spent at one of

our KITs.

Long story short, we love what we do, our car is not perfect but

for us it’s the most beautiful car we could possibly build and for

all the lazy people we wrote down our keyfacts in a short table.

#PASSIONWORKS – not only the name of our

cars but also our favorite phrase used in our last

Team Magazine uploads.

After obtaining all the knowledge about our

long time used (and loved) 4-cylinder-engine,

we asked ourselves: How could we make our

lives more difficult?

By asking all six of our team members

we evaluated that we couldn`t stand our

electronic parts and therefore our choice for

an astonishingly vibrating one-cylinder-engine

was easy.

While seeing less power with the new engine

concept, it allows us to give our drivers full

comfort. Highlights are our seat with a massage

function and the fancy new cup holder with an

integrated shaking function for your perfect


Hopefully we will manage to finish the

Team Bath Racing are

back in Austria this year

for the first time since

2015, with their brand

new challenger, TBR18.

The University of Bath’s

Formula Student team

consists this year of 20

final year engineering

students, assisted by 45

younger year students.

The design philosophy of this year’s car has been to optimise for transient

performance, meaning developing a racecar that performs excellently in acceleration,

braking and cornering. Based on a full carbon fibre monocoque and powered by a

brand new, turbocharged KTM 690cc single cylinder engine, which is fuelled with E85,

the car produces 70 hp and 77.5 Nm. Running on OZ Racing Magnesium wheels and

Avon tyres, with a full aerodynamics package generating over 1100N of downforce at

80kph, TBR18 promises to be a dynamically excellent Formula Student car.

UAS Niederrhein

HSNR Racing


The HSNR Racing Team was founded in 2011 in Krefeld, Germany, being part of the UAS Niederrhein.

With the RS-18c there was a huge change in the vehicle’s concept. Our goal was to increase the

driveability and cornering speed to improve our overall performance. A new self-made gearbox, a more

agile suspension and the first ever aerodynamic package make the seventh car of our team unique.

The distinguishing features of this year’s racecar are the new design and the weight reduction of 15 kg

excluding aerodynamics. The centre of gravity was lowered significantly by developing a more ergonomic

chassis and designing the car more compact.

The RS-18c is a big step for HSNR Racing and on track it will hopefully show what it is capable of. We’re

looking forward to an exciting event here at FSA and want to thank all sponsors and supporters!

FH Aachen

Aixtreme Racing

In 2007, when the No Angels reunited (anyone loving

Lucys hair as much as we do?), a group of students

from the University of Applied Sciences in Aachen

decided to take part in the formula student

competition and establish a team: Aixtreme Racing!

One year later the first car was build.

Nowadays being part of Aixtreme Racing means joining a group

of 13 individuals from different faculties: mechanical engineers,

business engineers, automotive engineers and one technical

communication scientist – which is also our cook.

Coming from FH Aachen, we are perfectly prepared for

independently contracting a flawless car due to the mind-set of

education in a very practical way.

With the FS17 we developed a completely new vehicle last

season. This concept is now being optimized with the FS18.

Work for this season is in progress – right round the clock.

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology


Hello together, we are KA-RaceIng and we want to say sorry

for this teampage. As always we decided to write this text one

hour before the deadline, just to realise that the deadline is two

days later, if we would just listen to our COO once…

“Calendar!” But enough of our ability to read dates, lets introduce our better half.

With our new electric car, we decided to change everything. New chassis, new

drivetrain, new suspension, hv-accumulator and tires. The only thing that stayed the

same are basically our drivers, even though some of them are a little bit heavier than

last year. With our new motor, we decided to take a step back with rpm just to push

the torque value, our hv-accumulator got completely new types of stacks

for more capacity, our cooling system got some beautiful weight

reduction and our suspension team built a sweet system

without an anti roll bar. All this in a new spreadtow

chassis… we basically built a fast chessboard with an

heave - roll system and the best aerodynamic

package we ever had.

As you may know, we are not an electric team, we are “one team –

three cars”. We are a team full of love for our project, passion for

motorsport and also the needed craziness and fun to push through long

nights. Last year we were second with our electric car, this year we are

back with two better cars, motivated to fight for first places all over again.

Feel free to visit us in our Pit, talk to us and you will realise that we are

happy students who enjoy each second we can spend at one of our cars.

To summarize it, we love that we are able to do what we are doing,

competing in the Formula Student. And even though we had to spent

night after night fixing bugs and mistakes, we love every part of our

The G18e has a whole new battery concept. We went from using pouch cells to round cells and

with that we could implement our self-developed battery management system. The aerodynamic

concept was optimized with the implementation of a drag-reduction-system and sidepods. For

the CFRP monocoque chassis we used aluminum honeycombs for the first time and because of

selective laser sintering the stabilizer bridge of our suspension was able to get topology-optimized.

Revolve NTNU is finally back at FSA! We are Norway’s northernmost team, and this year

we are competing with our new electrical beast, ATMOS. This is a product of

approximately 50 students coming together, hard work and creativity. We are excited to

see how well we can perform this summer at Red Bull Ring in Austria.

This year, we have many great new solutions. Our carbon fiber monocoque got a totally

new design - it is now smaller, more aero friendly and every system can be tightly

packed inside the chassis. The aerodynamics has also gotten more extreme this year.

During our production period we produced over 100 elements in light carbon fiber, so we

can get maximal traction to the course in every event.

Inside the car you can find over 38 self-designed PCB’s, every single one of them produced in

Trondheim. Combining all our PCB’s you will see a neat field of wires, going from the rear to the front

of our car. Not only do we have over 60 PCB’s, but the car also has over 300 sensors. If that isn’t

amazing, I don’t know what is. Being able to read all of the information is crucial. Therefore, we have

made several changes to our self-developed software program, Revolve Analyze. Here our members

can get live data from testing and during competitions. This way we can monitor our car all the way

to the finish line.

Do we even need to talk about our suspension system? Of Course! We have 3D printed uprights in

titanium, topology optimized carbon fiber rims and carbon fiber tubes connecting the suspension

system to our monocoque. Since 2016, we have been producing cars with 4WD and this year is no

exception. Inside each wheel we have AMK motors, enabling us to steer each wheel independently.

If you want to know more about our car, come see us in our pit or grab hold of one of our members!

The team which worked on this beauty

consists of over 60 students

from all fields of study. We worked

a hard year to create not only the

egn18-ev, but also the egn18-dv,

our second autonomous racing car

created to compete in the FSEast

and FSG.

We can‘t wait to see how our car

stacks up against the great competition

at this event. The best of luck

to all the other teams, we are eager

to see your cars on track!

This year marks our seventh season as a formula student

team and our fifth visit to the FSA competition. The egn18-

ev is a powerful racing machine, featuring a strong carbon

fibre monocoque, dynamic 4WD, an exquisite aerodynamics

package and advanced control systems.

Formula Student Team Delft


Formula Student Team Delft


Formula Student Team Delft consists of 80 team members from nine different faculties of

the university. Since 2014 Formula Student Team Delft is famous for her lightweight

concept four-wheel driven electric car. This year the innerwheel design, a single stage

planetary transmission inside the wheel, is further development making it more efficient,

lightweight and less complex. The self-developed pcb’s made it possible to prepare the

cars for the harsh endurance and autocross conditions as best as possible. Our less

complex, lightweight suspension optimises grip in all dynamic events.

Also, a completely new chassis shape has been chosen to aid the new aerodynamic

devices. The aerodynamic devices where validated in the windtunnel, showing promising

results. Together with our custom made tires, we believe we have a very competitive

RWTH Aachen University

Ecurie Aix, the Formula Student Team at RWTH Aachen University, was founded in 1999. The

name „Ecurie Aix“ is a reference to the team’s home base in the German city of Aachen, which

is located right at the borders to Belgium and the Netherlands. The word „Ecurie“ means

„Racing Stable“ or „Racing Team“ in french and has been chosen in respect to a very

successful Belgian motorsport team named Ecurie Francorchamps. The word „Aix“ is derived

from Aachen’s French name: Aix-la-Chapelle.

For 2018 we built an evolutionary car which is derived from last year. The concept is based on

a single piece monocoque with four electric motors. In order to make the car more reliable we

redesigned only a few parts completely but stuck with the concept of our eace06. The most

obvious changes were made by the aerodynamics and cooling department. The side covers

with so called chimneys are not only a genuine eye catcher, but they also heavily improved the

mass flow through the radiators.

In our fourth appearance we hope to build on the successes from the previous years, since we

took a trophy home to Aachen every time we went to FS Austria.
