Thread: DUTch Open 2008

  1. #1
    This summer, August 28-30, the Delft team will organise a Baltic Open style formula student event in the Netherlands, the DUTch Open, "the first event below sealevel".

    The idea is to have quite some different cars running with a maximum of 22. Therefore we would like to invite the European teams to come over this August to participate. To give a chance to as many teams as possible we limit the teams to bring 2 cars. This can be any FSAE car from the past.

    We strive to get the expenses for you guys as low as possible. This will include a place to stay the night (Thursday night-Sunday morning), breakfast on Friday-Sunday, participation in the event and a party with BBQ on Saturday.

    The Preliminary schedule will be:

    <UL TYPE=SQUARE>
    <LI> Thursday: Arrival and Scrutineering (workshop open for last minute work)
    <LI>Friday: Testing day @ event site + scrutineering
    <LI>Saturday: Event, being acceleration, autocross, endurance, followed by BBQ, award ceremony and party
    <LI>Sunday: Departure [/list]
    In order to get the costs as low as possible we need all teams to give a small design presentation (10 minutes max) about their car for our sponsors. This event will also be held on Saturday.

    Information regarding the event can be acquired via dutchopen@dutracing.nl or the teams website (soon), www.dutracing.nl.

    We will use a first come first serve base to allow teams to participate. If we still have slots for more cars we might increase the number of allowed cars per team.

    Dear Formula Student friends,

    We would like to invite you over for the DUTch Open, The first event below sea level to be held this summer Thursday 28th August, Friday 29th August until Saturday 30th August. On Thursday there will be the scruteneering, on Friday testing on circuit and on Saturday the event. The event will consist out of an autocross, acceleration and an endurance event. Because we are Delft and invite a lot of our Technical sponsors we ask you to prepare a small presentation (10minutes) of your car. You are expected to highlight some specialties of your car and the overall design philosophy for that car. It is like a small Design Presentation. The focus of this event lies in the fun of racing, like the famous Baltic Open. Due to time and location constraints we limit the entrance of each team to a maximum of two cars. This can be any FSAE car from the past until the present year.

    A short overview of what you can expect: Entrance to our shop for last minute work, a place to sleep will be arranged, including breakfast. There will be a great party afterwards and of course a lot of burning rubber. We want to promote Formula Student in the Netherlands. And we provide our sponsors with a nice event and give them a chance to meet the people behind formula student. So for those of you willing to do some career planning, this will be an excellent occasion to meet our sponsors, amongst which are some of the largest Dutch international technical companies.

    We would like to know if you will come to this great event and enjoy with us the beauty of Formula Student. We strive to get your costs as low as possible. Please let us now if you're interested and if so please inform us with the amount of people you will bring and the cars you would like to take along. From the cars we need year of build, a photo, specifications and what type of fuel (E85 or Petrol)

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Kind regards,

    On behalf of the Delft University of Technology Formula Student racing team,

    Guys,

    Is this replacing the baltic Open for this year? If so, I think you better put us down for it. Going to make the track tight and twisty to suit your car or nice and open for us 4pots to clean up

    Well, last year we kind of said, that we would organise a "Baltic Open" in the Netherlands, so yeah in that perspective you can view this as a replacement. As for the track, it will be a nice mixture of the two, due to the nature of the location. I can yet not go into more details, but we have some nice and spectacular ideas. Oh and yes, there will be a skid-pad as well...

    Yeah, BO will be relocated this year.

    Which teams have signed up for now?

    We have some problems with getting our 07-car to Delft and thought to ask what teams are competing (especially Swedish) and what are those teams' methods of getting the car(s) to The Netherlands.

    Our truck has capacity for two cars but since FSG is only few weeks earlier, I think that truck is never coming to Finland in between those two competitions. So, either 07- and 08-car to FSG (will be a tough one to fit with sauna and such on-board) or a seperate transport for 07-car just before DUTch Open. And this latter one could be in co-operation with some Swedish team?

    Kimmo, are you in FSUK? I'm sure it will be the last thing on Malins mind. I think we have a trailer big enough to get our two cars in or we are taking the cars down on seperate trailers, so I think we will be pushed for space. Speak to KTH and see if they can help...600odd km closer as well
