REPORT CONTINUED BERN

REPORT CONTINUED BERN FORMULA STUDENT The Formula Student team from Bern University of Applied Sciences Luca Placi, Co-founder, former CEO & advisor “Mr. Placi, the BFS team is competing in the Formula Student Electric. What potential do you see in electric-powered vehicles?” “The Bern Formula Student Team was founded in 2014 at the initiative of Bern University of Applied Sciences students majoring in automotive engineering. Each year they develop a fully electric-powered vehicle. For our inaugural 2015 season, for example, we built the ‘Berna’ in just 11 months. When we came to our second season in 2016, we set our development goals very high and developed and built nearly all the mechanical and electrical systems ourselves. Our successful ‘Giura’ vehicle was built as a cooperative project by 35 students. We’ve learned so much from taking part! We see the potential of electric vehicles in the great challenge of combining performance with safety and sustainability. And by the way, we’re already started working at full throttle for 2017 …” For more information see www.bernformulastudent.ch Anthea Kerollos, Head of Marketing “Ms. Kerollos, in your view what is the distinguishing feature of the TU Graz racing team?” “Each year the TU Graz Racing Team builds a racer called ‘Tankia’ for the international Formula Student competitions. Some 500 international universities compete in this racing series in static and dynamic disciplines each year. The team is made up of students from various programs at TU Graz and the University of Graz. Members of this interdisciplinary team spend their free time building a competitive race car with the help of CAD software and simulation tools. We work professionally, just like we would in a business, and we’re all connected like a big family, as you can see by our strong results in the 2015 and 2016 racing seasons.” TU GRAZ RACING TEAM Formula Student Team, Graz University of Technology, Austria For more information see www.racing.tugraz.at Ephraim Schwegler, Overall Technical Director “Mr. Schwegler, what, in your view, is the biggest challenge in building the racer?” “Other than the technical challenge of conceiving, designing and finally building a racing car within a year, the biggest challenge lies in coaching the members of the team for the entire season. After all, membership in our club is voluntary, but it sometimes involves workloads of up to 120 hours per person (per month). On the other hand, experiences like this are part of the competition’s appeal. Exploring our own limits usually leads to success.” For more information see www.high-octane-motorsports.de HIGH-OCTANE MOTORSPORTS E.V.
