Lausanne Racing Team

The team’s project is to participate in the Formula Student competition, a university engineering competition for which each team builds a single-seater racing car. This competition exists since the 1980s and this year would be EPFL’s first participation. The Lausanne Racing Team has decided to compete in the electric category in order to develop fundamental skills for the automotive industry of tomorrow.

The entire car is designed by students. There are more than 50 of them, distributed in different teams to be able to present a reliable prototype for the summer competitions. They will be present at two Formula Student competitions this summer: from August 5 to 10 in Hockenheim, Germany and from August 20 to 25 in Barcelona, Spain.
During the competitions, their vehicle and manufacturing process will be examined in a series of so-called “static” tests by industry professionals. Once these tests have been passed, they will be able to compete on the circuit against other cars in the so-called “dynamic” events. During these tests, the car’s handling will be tested, as well as acceleration and energy consumption.
