Future of DV category at FS East

Oct/21 By

As the season of 2021 is getting to its end and we know that many of you are already thinking about the season of 2022.

For this preparation we would like to provide you some information – especially regarding the Driverless category. Let’s start with the most burning question:

based on a lot of discussions and feedback rounds we decided to have separate EV, CV and DV categories for the event of 2022.

This means that we do not plan to merge the driverless category with the base car category in the next racing season. Also, we would like to make our event flexible in the sense that we would like to provide opportunity for those teams who decide that they would like to participate in two categories (e.g. DV and EV) with the same car as well. We are convinced that with this solution we are able to provide you the best race experience amongst our possibilities.

Have a great preparation for 2022 and see you at the competition!

Carnival Square at FS East

Aug/4 By

For 2 years, Formula Student campsites were quiet and empty. Now is the time to bring the spirit back even stronger, and this is your job this year at the FS East Village! A special section of our campsite has been marked, right in front of the main stage, just for you to share your country’s best food or drink and have fun with Formula Student friends that you’ve been missing for so long! This is FS East Camp Carnival Square!

Each team gets a 5 m x 5 m area to set up their station for the entire stay at our campsite. You can pitch a tent, install some funky lighting, bring your grills and your favourite drinks – hospitality is the name of the game! Make sure to dress it up nicely so all the people of the FS East Camp flock to your booth! This is a chance the organizers give you to turn the campsite into a festival in front of the main stage. All we ask is to keep it safe in return – it’s the deal of the century, right?

More info about the setup and exact location will be available!

So in short:

  • 5 m x 5 m area in front of the main stage per team FOR THE ENTIRE COMPETITION!
  • Bring your own generator if you need electricity!
  • Bring food and drinks that you want to share with FS East
  • HAVE FUN! (;

IMPORTANT:
We want to provide you with an excellent event experience after such a long hiatus during the 4 and a half days you spend at FS East 2021. As our time is limited and shorter than expected, we strongly advise you and ask for your cooperation in adhering to the schedule – especially on the exact times of moving out of the pits as well as finishing dynamic disciplines! No car will be allowed to start their run after 17:50! We ask for your cooperation to provide the fairest and smoothest event experience for you and others as well.

To ease scrutineering, two scrutineering steps will be available in the campsite on the 6th of August:

  • Accumulator scrutineering
  • Safety equipment check

Please prepare accordingly and consider this when packing your equipment!
