Schanzer Racing Electric: Successful premiere at the Red Bull Ring
The success story continues: After their eighth place at the Hockenheimring, the Schanzer Electric Racing Team (SRE) has now secured a top ten place in Austria as well, finishing in sixth place. The Formula Student Team from TH Ingolstadt, competing for the first time in the Formula Student Austria (FSA) in Spielberg at the Red Bull Ring, did so in their self-developed SRe14 electric racing car. There it proved itself in several trials both on and beside the racetrack and came through against some tough international competition. A total of 18 teams from around the world competed against each other in the race series from 17 August to 20 August under the “Electric Cars” category.
After initial difficulties in the static competitions, the Schanzer Racing team succeeded in achieving good results with the Sre14 in the dynamic disciplines and thus made up a few places. With a sensational third place in the Efficiency category they managed to take home a trophy for the first time, ultimately securing sixth place.
As chief sponsor, BFFT congratulates the Schanzer Racing Team and wishes them much success in the upcoming Formula SAE Italy competition (August 29 – September 1)!
