For the 2012 season, the main focus was on the timely and regular production of the prototype. The goal was the successful participation in the Formula Student Combustion competition in August at the Hockenheimring. But all expectations were exceeded. If you were glad to have finished the car in time, more and more points were ticked on the “nice-to-have list”: technical acceptance made, to compete in all disciplines, dynamic and static, without failure. Even the last point, with a total of 37 participants from 77 participants, was proudly fulfilled.
