Schanzer Racing Electric Team Convincing in Italy
The BFFT sponsored Schanzer Racing electric (SRe) team has also been successful at the Formula Student Italy race track in Varano de`Melegari near Parma (14th – 17th september) and thus finish the weekend with an outstanding fourth place finish in the overall ranking.
Similar to the race in Hockenheim, the electrical racing car „First Lady“, developed by 70 students, was being tested regarding construction compliant to rules, energy efficiency, cost structure and business plan as well as competing at the international level.
The racing car, also developed by BFFT, stood out in the so-called dynamic events. In both main events “Endurance” (Here the vehicles are tested in perseverance and reliability and have to cover a distance of 22 km) as well as Autocross (here the fastest time a vehicle can cover an 800 m long obstacle course counts) the SRe-team even reached third place.
An eighth place finish in the Formula Student`s main race in Hockenheim (SRe ended up as second best Bavarian team) and a fourth place finish in Italy made for an outstanding season. The good results deserve particular notice, because the students from HAW Ingolstadt had taken part in the racing series for the first time. BFFT congratulates the whole team on a great season.
