    2015 Formula Student Germany

    Is coverage of all events on for this year of endurance only?
    Can't wait.

    Any thoughts on who has a chance of beating super GFR?
    After Michigan it looked like it could be done!
    Rennteam looked strong at FSUK, 3rd with no skidpad /accel and rain.

    Ryan, I agree with you. GFR does not look as "unbeatable" as in the 2-3 years before. This time it's not "DNF or Victory".

    Rennteam was really strong at ZF Race Camp and in the UK. They tested a lot and only had bad luck Saturday morning in the UK. If they are good in the Statics again (Cost finals, Top 6 Design...), they should be able to give GFR a tough fight.
    At one point, those 4 cylinder machines should be able to run Sub 4's in Accel. I mean, look at Wroclaw with 220kg+ and a 3,8 in the UK, the Wing is not too bad if you run it completely open. If Stuttgart is able to pull 4-5 tenths on GFR in Accel, then they should be in good shape.

    Karlsruhe, Munich and Graz should also be in the mix.


    But I guess the electric competition is going to be as awesome as last year. Delft, Stuttgart, Zurich and maybe Karlsruhe should be able to have a winning car on their hands. It probably will come down to "who makes the least mistakes" again...
    Should be incredible!

    I would add them as well (like TUFast Elektro!) but they both will sadly not participate...

    Hehe. I appreciate all of the work the FSG organizers put in to making FSG such a great event. They have all of the companies as sponsors and they decorate the track with giant murals and informative posters. It really is a great event. But I think one of the graphic designers worked for too long when they made this poster.

    Well at least, they did not write "Oregan State University"
