Posted by on December 19, 2016

Dear Teams, Dear FS Fans,

we’ve collected all the main news regarding FS East 2017 to share them all with you at once.

In the last couple of weeks we received tons of questions about the event and we’re really overjoyed by your enthusiasm. This announcement is supposed to give you official answers to your inquiries. We’re really looking forward to the competition and can’t wait to meet you, the teams in the summer of 2017. (:

The official date of FS East 2017 is 20-23 July, 2017.

For the FS East 2017 competition we’re opening slots for 40 combustion and 20 electric teams. For the top waiting list teams – 14 combustion and 7 electric – we will handle the documents in advance for a pre-determined percent of the registration fee. FS East 2016 Top 3 teams (CAT-Racing, High-Octane Motorsports e.V., BME Formula Racing Team) are invited as pre-registered teams. There won’t be any significant changes in the registration process compared to the last year’s, the updated registration rules document will be published soon.

In this season FS East is going to be organised in compliance with the Rules 2017 with some minor event-specific alterations that we’re going to publish later.

FS East also announces to organise the very first FS Alumni World Summit with the aim of establishing a new tradition. The event opens on DAY -1 of FS East at 6 PM on 18th of July, 2017 and ends at 7 PM on DAY 0. The mission of the FS East World Summit is to draw together the alumni members of the FS world for a whole day of casual programs, brainstorming, go-karting and simply having fun. Besides we’d like to involve the participants as officials in the procedures of scrutineering and judging, thus significantly improving the conditions in order to organise the competition in the highest possible professional level. We’re planning to welcome 30-50 enthusiasts, the details of the application process will be announced expectedly in January, however it would be a great support for us if our alumni friends would indicate their intent of participation in advance via e-mail to [email protected]

After considering all possible event site options in the area the organisers decided to choose the Euro-Ring circuit as the venue of FS East 2017. The track is ideal for an FS competition as we’re able to set up an excellent racecourse for all events and there’s also a safe grandstand for visitors. 48 teams are going to be allocated in the pits of an existent building and we’ll build up a comfortable, huge tent for the additional 12 teams’ pits on the unused part of the track’s asphalt. The FS East Village is also going to be built near the racetrack which is convenient for the everyday work of the teams and the officials as well. Euro-Ring is in the heart of Hungary only 50 kms away from the beautiful downtown of Budapest.

Team Registration will open on 9th of January 2017 22:00 CET. The Team Registration Form will be available at: http://fseast.eu/registration. Every registered team will get a unique identification number at the Team Registration, which will be used for identification at the Event Registration Quiz.

The Event Registration Order will be determined by the results of the Event Registration Quiz. Event Registration Quiz opens on 18th of January 2017 16:00 CET.


The event is organized by the Engineers for the Automotive Higher Education Associasion
