The Formula Student class 1 competition allows students to develop and manufacture a race car with an emphasis on performance and design. EUFS seeks to build on their solid platform of competition experience to develop lighter, faster, and more responsive cars yearly, while continuing to improve on our impressive statics event performance. The team also seeks to develop new technology, and runs a variety of feasibility studies for exciting future projects.
EUFS class 1 was first founded in 2014 by a number of hard-working alumni students, many of whom are still involved with team development today. The class 1 team has learned an incredible amount since conception, and the resourcefulness of our students is our key selling point. We have a place for a broad range of engineering skills, from design and simulation to manufacture and testing to suit all students. EUFS also prides itself on our ability to forge new friendships and provide an exciting and friendly environment to develop our passion for race-cars.
We are interested in connecting our bright members with industry. If you would like to sponsor us via financial aids or equipment/materials in-kind, please head to the Sponsor Us page!
