FS East Online Opportunities

Apr/2 By

Dear FS East teams,

we guess we can truly say that this has been a very unconventional and surprising year for all of us. Just a few weeks ago we were busy planning FS East and you were probably spending most of your time in your workshop, preparing for this years’ competitions. No one could foresee that the FS events in Europe are about to be cancelled.

However, as an FS event, we feel our responsibility to help keeping the FS spirit alive and our community to thrive. Therefore we started some brainstorming and now we are analyzing the possibilities of creating an online version of the FS East event. We are encouraging you to take part in the creation of such concept!

FS East 2020 cancelled

Mar/25 By

After evaluating the current situation and taking into account your feedbacks regarding the global pandemic’s effect on the FS Community, we have decided to cancel the Formula Student East 2020 competition.

We believe the health and safety of the students, their friends and families must be the top priority now. Even though we hope things will improve by the planned dates of the event, we don’t want to put anyone into risk while preparing to the competition, going to the workshops, etc. Please focus on taking care of each other instead!

Still, we’re looking into possibilities of keeping FS East alive and we’ll be back with the details soon!

Stay home & stay safe!

FS East future

Dec/10 By

Dear Teams!

A few weeks ago, Formula Student Germany, by many regarded as the leading FS event in Europe, announced their road map for next few years. They took a bold step in concentrating on what they think is will be the most interesting challenge: EVs with autonomous driving features. In summary, there were two main points:

  • autonomous driving as part of all competition classes
  • phasing out of the combustion class, resulting in an all-EV competition by 2022

Many teams were then concerned about the future of certain vehicle classes as well as compatibility between events.
No Worries. The European events are working together to make sure that there will be no fragmentation and to cover the demand for CV event slots.

  • CV continues to exist as a competition class for now (including 2022)
  • CV will remain part of the FS Rules, curated by FSA and the other events offering this class
  • All cars compliant to the FS 2021/2022 Rules will be eligible to compete at FSEast

Now to expand on this a bit:
