Who are we
EPFL Racing Team is a Formula Student team founded by students in the fall of 2017. Each year, the team designs and develops an electric racing car. These vehicles are then taken to various competitions around Europe, in which we compete against other universities in engineering and business Events.
What do we do
These EPFL students from almost all sections of the school aim to apply the skills and knowledge learned in courses, as well as to push the technology of the Electric and Autonomous Vehicle industries to be more efficient and more sustainable. The Formula Student competition is noteworthy for its accent on innovation, and is considered to be one of the most prestigious engineering competitions.
Cars & Competitions
We are part of the huge Formula Student competition network. Many engineering universities take part each Summer all over Europe in various locations, going through various Engineering trials. These tests, called Events, verify the safety of the vehicle, as well as the design and efficiency of the various engineering elements. The team is also tested on the Business aspect of our work, in an Event called Business Plan. Overall the competitions compare the designs of the participating cars, as well as identifying the issues in them – which is incredibly beneficial to the design of the next car.
Our first car competed in summer 2019 in FS Spain and FS Germany. It is currently on exhibit in the ELA building on the EPFL Campus.
The second car competed in summer 2021 in FS Switzerland (although this was only semi-maintained due to COVID-19), FS Czech Republic, FS East and FS Germany!
Founded thirty seven years ago by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), Formula Student opens the door to engineering students around the world to conceptualize and build a prototype race car to compete with other universities in world-wide competitions.
Being part of one of the most prestigious schools in the world we cannot aim for less than perfect.
There is no better way to learn than by doing!
Simply reproducing what has been done already is not in our DNA, we want to drive innovation forward through our work.
How can you help us
