About FS East
Formula Student East 2017 takes place between 20th and 23rd of July in Hungary at the Euroring race-circuit near Budapest. Top teams of the World Ranking List have registered to this year’s event, therefore such a tough field will come to FS East that has been unprecedented in Hungary before. The teams consisting of university students will compete in the static and dynamic events with racecars designed and built entirely by them.
Before the actual competition starts, the alumni members of the Formula Student movement will join us for the first FS Alumni World Summit on 19th July, 2017.
Formula Student East is a private event, visitors are able to register for an entry card which provides free entrance for all four days of the competition. Visitor registration is available at fseast.eu/visitor.
From 2016 Engineers for the Automotive Higher Education Association organises Formula Student East as an FSAE style engineering competition representing the Eastern European automotive region. The Association is dedicated to focus on the educational function of the event as its mission is to help today’s student generations become the outstanding professionals of tomorrow since it has been established in 2010. The competition also provides the chance for FS teams from the Eastern European region to compete in an international environment by offering half of the slots for them, the other half for teams from all over the world.
After a successful opening season in 2016, FS East has already been listed as a World Ranking List Event for the first time in the history of Formula Student competitions.
In 2017 the competition has been significantly expanded compared to the first season, 40 combustion and 20 electric teams are able to participate at FS East in 2017. Since the event registration opened on 18th January, 2017 overall 119 teams have registered from 28 countries of the world.
