SRE End-of-Season Event at Audi Driving Experience Site in Neuburg
After successful performances in the Formula Student race (three Top 10 placings) this year, BFFT sponsoring partner Schanzer Racing Electric (SRE)’s current season has come to a close. On 31 October, the student team invited all sponsors, as a gesture of thanks, to a closing event at the new site of the Audi Driving Experience in Neuburg an der Donau.
About 120 racing enthusiasts were able to relive the excitement of the “SRE14” electric car developed by TH Ingolstadt students, live and in action. The invited sponsors went for a few spins with the battery-operated race car on the Audi Driving Experience site. “Wildcards” for more test runs were raffled among the spectators.
As an operator of the Audi Driving Experience Center, and as the main sponsor of SRE, BFFT was, of course, a participant in this event. Among others, Managing Directors Markus Fichtner and Michael Mittag found themselves in the cockpit of the SRE14 and mastered course marked out on the dynamic surface with no problems. A particular highlight for BFFT employees was, however, the joint action with Schanzer Racing: in advance of the event, ten exclusive starting places in racing cars were raffled among them. From 12:30 to 2:00 PM, the winners’ racing dreams came true when they were able to place themselves behind the wheel of a race car and demonstrate their prowess. A gathering place for drinks in a relaxing atmosphere rounded off the event.
