You can find all the major updates after the “More” button. Read it through and spread the word among your team members!

The event registration will be available on 22nd of January, 2018 in two phases:

  • 1st phase from 17:00 CET
  • 2nd phase from 20:00 CET.

The event registration process is detailed in the Registration Rules which will be published in November, 2017.

Update (Nov. 30th): the Registration Rules are available on our Rules & Important Documents page.

Static events

The static events are going through a development process as well, which mainly affects the Cost Event. From this year the statics will comply with FSG’s Rules 2018 entirely.

FS Alumni World Summit

The FS Alumni World Summit is organised for the second time on the 1st day of FS East. We invite the alumni members of the teams to get to know each other, exchange their experiences or even make new connections in the automotive industry. We also encourage the summit attendants to stay with us for the rest of the competition days and join our crew as an official staff member.

Officials & Volunteers

As the event extended considering the number of teams and categories, we also aim to improve its technical and professional level. This year a lot of alumni members became FS East organisers from the Hungarian teams, so you may recognize some familiar faces from other events as well. We will share with you the official staff of the 2018 event soon.

Of course we are still looking for volunteers, so don’t be afraid to join us for this great event! You can find further details of the application on our Volunteer Page
