Formula Student Germany 2019

�FSG_Rankin and FSG_Haertl and Rennstall Esslingen

Last Sunday the last event of our Formula Student season 2019 ended for us.
The event started very well for us, we made it hrough the scrutineering quite quickly and were the first combustion team to drive in the Practise Area.
The next day the static disciplines were on the agenda. Cost Report and Business Plan went well, but in the Design Report we were caught on the wrong foot.
Nevertheless, we were satisfied at the end of the day and were able to prepare VERA well for the Dynamics. Very important for a good basic mood was the excellent catering. At this point thanks to Heike, Detlef, Niklas and their crew who managed to cook for all of us throughout FSG 2019!
VERA was finally allowed to show what she is capable of dynamically. Unfortunately there were still some small problems, resulting in a disqualification for our fast acceleration time of 4. 62 seconds.
On Saturday our drivers and VERA drove in the AUTO X event. Unfortunately our shifting actuator was not fully functional, so that the drivers could not exploit the full potential of the H15.
As a result, we started on Sunday morning in the group A of the Endurance event.
VERA and our driver were performing great until shortly before the driver change. But unfortunately we had to stop the race, because we couldn't restart the engine after suddenly losing oil pressure.

Nevertheless, we are proud of what our racing car has achieved despite the lack of testing time this season! We were able to show a little bit what our concept is cabable of.
And now it's time to get back to the drawing board, analysing the season, eliminating weak points to return more stable and stronger next season!

Formula Student Austria 2019 is over!
And again we’ve learned a lot. The revised shifting actuator proved to be a success. We ran in Skidpad, Acceleration and Auto X. Previously, VERA had the opportunity to show a little of her talent during testing.
In the second Auto X Run, on a dry track, VERA initially did well. But then we had a defect in the clutch actuator.
On the same evening we were able to find and repair the mechanical fault. But unfortunately electronics problems occurred at the Clutch Motor Controller Unit.
In spite of full commitment, a night shift and the highly motivated work of the whole team, we unfortunately did not manage to eliminate the mistake before the endurance and therefore had to accept the DNS, after working on the car until the last minute. Also the 4th place in the engineering design of the combustion cars could not really comfort us about the fact that we did not drive in the Endurance, because we know, what our H15 can achieve.
Now, thanks to joanneum racing graz, we have a few days in Graz to fix everything, to test on the weekend in Fohnsdorf to validate our modifications and repairs and to prepare ourselves properly for HAWKenheim.
A part of the team already built up our camp at the Formula Student Germany the last days, so that we could make full use of our test time here.
Despite all the setbacks, the team continued to grow together and we are looking forward to the next event…
