Formula Student is an international engineering design motorsport competition, which is participated in by over 800 universities in almost
every continent. Students must design, manufacture, assemble and drive their own racing car every year. In addition to win the competition
they must excel in being interviewed in depth by a panel of motorsport industry professionals about their design – and must prepare
detailed presentations covering not only the engineering and performance, but the cost, marketing and buisiness aspects of the project.
Some teams are nearly 100% funded by their university, and others have to find their own funding through sponsors. Most teams are somewhere in between.
I participated for 5 years from 2006 to 2010
