Formula Student

Formula Student is one of the world's most established educational engineering competitions that focuses on motorsports. Backed and closely observed by industry leaders, the competition provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate their engineering knowledge and test their capabilities to deliver a complex integrated product made within the FSAE rules. Besides automotive engineering concepts, students learn to value team work, time management, budgeting and presentation. It trains them with industry level skills that prospective employers are looking for and setting them up for a career in engineering.

Acceleration

Based on raw speed, the time a car takes to cover a 75m stretch starting from standstill is measured and used for comparison. The value of each milli-second is truly recognized here as the car’s dynamics are tested at the core of what racing is all about. Each driver gets two runs each.

...
Skidpad

The car is driven on an 8-shaped track made up of 2 pairs of concentric circles to check its performance while cornering around sharp turns. The vehicle enters perpendicular to the shape of the track, and covers a lap on the right circle to estabilish the turn. The next lap happens on the same circle and is timed, before moving to the left circle for a lap. The fourth lap is then timed on the left circle.

...
Autocross

The formula student equivalent of what qualifying is for f1. The car that is the fastest in a single lap consisting of chicanes, hairpins, slaloms, multiple turns, decreasing radius turns and straights takes the crown. It tests speed on the straights, cornering speed along with maneuverability of the car.

...
Endurance

Even the best of cars suffer reliability issues. This herculean task of covering 22km puts your car to a test like no other. It is one of the most anticipated and nail-biting events at FS. With 1km long laps, overtaking is allowed only in certain sections under the observation of track marshals.

...
Fuel Effiency

The efficiency score of a car is based on the distance the vehicle travels in the endurance event and the total fuel/energy used. Along with Endurance, they award a maximum of 425 points, making it the most important dynamic student in the competition.

...
Design Event

Collect data, simulate, validate, draw results and apply: The simple procedure for any engineering practice. How well have you followed this while building your car? The event tests the core of your engineering skills.

...
Cost and Manafacturing

Building a race car is not easy but listing down every procedure, every assembly, justifying costs and extrapolating them for mass manufacture is a mammoth task. Nailing this event goes a long way in securing your position at the FS podium. This static event is split into 2 parts- cost report where you present your items list, and cost scenario, where you respond to a challenge related to the cost or manufacturing of the vehicle.

Business Plan Presentation

The FS version of Shark Tank, teams have to innovate upon a business model built around their car and pitch it to the judges posing as investors. One of the most exciting events, it tests the team’s presentation skills, creativity and is worth a total of 75 points.

75 pts Business Plan Presentation:

100 pts Cost and Manufacturing:
Building a car is not easy but listing down every procedure, every assembly, justifying costs and extrapolating them for mass manufacture is a tasks for super humans. The more sorted your car is the better its chances for nailing this.
150 pts Engineering Design:
Collect data, simulate, validate, draw results then apply. The simple procedure for any engineering practice. How well have you followed it while building your car? This event and the 150 points associated with it will decide.
