For­mu­lar Stu­dent coope­ra­ti­on wit­hin “Stra­te­gic Part­nership”


The coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween the For­mu­la Stu­dent teams of Leib­niz Uni­ver­si­ty Han­no­ver and Peter the Gre­at Poly­tech­nic Uni­ver­si­ty St. Peters­burg was esta­blished this year wit­hin the pro­ject “Stra­te­gic Part­nership”.

For­mu­la Stu­dent is a stu­dent engi­nee­ring com­pe­ti­ti­on to design, build, test, and race a small-sca­le for­mu­la style car. It is also a plat­form to dis­cuss ide­as and solu­ti­ons to various com­plex pro­blems in this field and exchan­ge expe­ri­ence.

After an initi­al suc­cess­ful tri­al during the event qua­li­fi­ca­ti­on, both teams "Hor­se­Power Han­no­ver" and "Poly­tech North Capi­tal Motor­sport" were able to pre­pa­re toge­ther, suc­cess­ful­ly qua­li­fy, and par­ti­ci­pa­te at the race events in Ger­ma­ny and the Nether­lands.
The Rus­si­an stu­dent team visi­ted Han­no­ver in August, just a week befo­re the start of the "For­mu­la Stu­dent Ger­ma­ny (FSG)" event. The visit to St.Petersburg fol­lo­wed in Sep­tem­ber 2018. The stu­dents got a deep insight into the plan­ning, struc­tu­ring, working cul­tu­re and tech­ni­cal frame­work for the rea­li­za­ti­on of such a com­plex pro­ject at the part­ner uni­ver­si­ty. In addi­ti­on, the team from Han­no­ver had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to visit the Solar Racing Team at the St.Petersburg Poly­tech­nic Uni­ver­si­ty, which build an elec­tric race car with a dif­fe­rent requi­re­ment pro­fi­le.
Even though both teams com­pe­te in dif­fe­rent racing disci­pli­nes (Han­no­ver with elec­tric and St. Peters­burg with com­bus­ti­on engi­ne), the team­work and the sha­red expe­ri­ence are cru­ci­al for the suc­cess of such a pro­ject. As a famous For­mu­la One engi­neer and For­mu­la Stu­dent judge Clau­de Rou­el­le said: "Build an A-Team first and a C-Car first and your Team evol­ve year after year and you will make a car which is bet­ter and bet­ter".
In this sen­se, all par­ti­ci­pa­ting stu­dents would like to thank the DAAD and the Inter­na­tio­nal Office for this gre­at oppor­tu­ni­ty and hope to con­ti­nue to main­tain and expand the part­nership. The report about the stay in St.Petersburg can be view­ed at web page of the Inter­na­tio­nal Office.
