This year is their second participation in the event. The members gained experience from last year’s competition and made full preparations. With a team slogan of “Ever Youthful, Ever Racing”, the team spared no efforts to struggle for their dream, and won themselves such a great honor.
HNU’s student racing teams consist of a fuel racing team, an electric racing team, and a driverless racing team. The fuel and driverless racing teams also made good performances in the 2019 FSC.
HNU College of Mechanical and Vehicle Engineering (MVE) provides a good platform for undergraduate racing teams to cultivate their ability in engineering practice, cooperation and communication, and publicity and planning. The teams are financially and technically supported by HNU, MVE, and Modern Engineering Training Center. They will forge head for a brighter future at Formula Student competitions.
