FS East 2020 General Event Info & Registration Process

Jan/20 By

In 2020 we’re organising the fifth Formula Student East competition between 4th and 9th of August at the Zala ZONE Automotive Proving Ground in Hungary.

This season overall 85 teams of three categories are welcome to join us: we’re opening 45 combustion, 30 electric and 10 driverless slots.

We’re also providing the opportunity for teams to compete with the same car in multiple categories (EV&DV and CV&DV) if they’re able to get a starter position in both during event registration.

Previous year’s top teams are invited to pre-register for the event, as well as the Hungarian team with the best final result – the participation of the latter is sponsored by Association of Automotive Engineers as its initiative to support local teams.

To register for FS East 2020, all teams need a valid team profile that you’re able to create/update until 10:00 CET on 31st January. We’re opening the Team Registration platform on Tuesday 21st January, 2020 at 22:00 CET.

Event Registration starts on Friday 31st January, 2020 at 11:00 CET. Teams with a valid team profile will be able to fill out a quiz, we’re going to determine the registration order based on its results.

If you might not get a starter position, don’t give up! In Event Registration Period 4 the top waiting list teams will have the chance to upload their documents and get in when we have a vacancy on out starter lists.

  • The acknowledgement of FS East within the European movement
  • He introduces the biggest supporters of FS East
  • How we are going to deal with the expectations towards us
  • The new (and final?) location of FS East
