The Event In Numbers
The Event In Detail
2019 we had 200 students attending the event, and beside of that we also have a number of alumni and professionals that help out as judges during the different testing events. All FS teams from the Nordic countries who want to attend are more than welcome to join us.
The alumni helps the team to identify things to make sure the cars are rules compliant and safe to drive.
We discuss and give feedback in how we can present the engineering design, business plan and cost & manufacturing events.
