The last Formula Student competition of the season is finished! The race took place at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona in Spain and we were present with our brand new car, the Umicore Isaac to defend the Belgian tricolor. 70 teams of 14 different countries took part in this exciting competition. Now that the competition is over, it is time to look back at everything that has happened and all the different memorable moments.
Flying passed scrutineering
Traditionally, each competition starts with a comprehensive technical inspection, also called scrutineering. Scrutineering is a set of tests each car must pass to ensure the safety of the pilot and the other teams. After a wonderful run in Hockenheim we were convinced that we could once again pass the test without any problems ... and that’s exactly what we did! The mechanical, electrical, tilt, rain and brake test went without a problem and we passed scrutineering from day one.
The annual Formula Student competition in Hockenheim is over! This year we were there with our brand new car, the Umicore ISAAC. For five days, we and 110 other teams gave it all we had in this challenging competition. Because it is generally known, the competition in Hockenheim isn’t like any other competition.
A strong start
Traditionally, every competition starts with a comprehensive technical inspection, called scrutineering. Scrutineering is a set of tests every car must pass to ensure the safety of the pilot and the other teams. After the difficulties at Silverstone, we invested heavily in passing these tests. This also paid off as we completed the mechanical, electrical, tilt-, rain -and brake-test very quickly. So quickly that we were the second team to pass scrutineering.
