IR07 - Red Diamond

The Ignition Racing Team's first racing car bears the name "IR07 - Red Diamond". The letters I and R naturally stand for "Ignition Racing". The numbers 0 and 7 obviously represent the year 2007, when the car made its debut at Formula Student Germany.

The nickname "Red Diamond" was originally inspired by the design of the racing car. The IR07 refracts the light with its eye-catching polygon shapes, similar to a diamond. The racing car's paintwork in the characteristic red color of the 2007 main sponsor Suzuki contributes to the name. The fact that red diamonds are the rarest and therefore most valuable gemstones on earth reflects the appreciation that all team members involved in the construction of the IR07 have for the car. The name of the very first IRT racer could hardly be more fitting...
