Picking up pace with GETRAG…
According to the saying ‘‘Tis early practice only makes the master’, over 3,000 young engineers are designing and building race cars for the construction competition ‘Formula Student Germany (FSG)’. They are living their fascination for motorsports. The first race took place in 2006 at Hockenheimring race track Germany and today Formula Student has evolved into a highly professional competition, which captivates students and employers worldwide.
Over a whole year, the students are preparing everything for the race: The recruitment of new team members, search for sponsors, vehicle design, budget planning, parts production, training for the race and many more challenges need to be tackled. In the end, the team with the best package of race performance, financial planning and selling points wins.
The impressive engineering performance and the outstanding dedication of the students fascinate us at GETRAG. Since 2007 we have been supporting eight incredible teams with our expertise and with the production of components. In doing so we continue to realise how important the contact with motivated and determined young engineers is. The students are gaining intense experience in teamwork, time and project management, and furthermore in design, production processes and business aspects. These are key skills, which will ease their job entry in their later life.
