Thanks to the experience gained at the competition, a large number of students later continue their careers in the automotive industry, and the project has been supported by the domestic unicorn Rimac Group for several years.
“We invite everyone to come and see the best European and world Formula Student teams and cars. In addition to the teams, the presentations of our sponsors, the most technologically attractive companies in Croatia and abroad, will also be particularly interesting. For all our visitors and teams, we have organized an attractive program in which everyone will find something for themselves, and there are also numerous surprises from our sponsors.”he pointed out Tibor Kezeljpresident of the FSAA association and representative of the competition organizers.
At last year’s competition, 2,500 spectators gathered, while this year’s organizers expect even greater interest thanks to the rich program and impressive list of experts from the automotive industry. Ambitious students will demonstrate their engineering knowledge in static and dynamic disciplines. For visitors, four dynamic disciplines will be particularly attractive – acceleration, figure eight, sprint race and endurance race, while teams will also compete in static disciplines that include engineering design, economy of vehicle manufacturing and business plan.
“I had the opportunity to meet the organizers of the Rimac Group Formula Student Alpe Adria competition and I must point out that they are wonderful young people full of passion and dedication. Over the years they have done an amazing job and become the official Formula Student competition. This is why I have huge expectations for this year and I will do my best to present the Bugatti Rimac in the best possible way in the evaluation of the competitors.”he added Marco Arnolettipowertrain manager at Aston Martin who will be the head judge for the engineering teams this year.
The Formula Student project was launched in the USA, but due to its popularity, it spread to Great Britain, Australia, Japan, and then to a large number of European countries. For visitors, four dynamic disciplines will be particularly attractive – acceleration, figure eight, sprint race and endurance race, while teams will also compete in static disciplines that include engineering design, economy of vehicle manufacturing and business plan.
