IR13 - Green Garnet

In 2013, the IRTe of around 35 dedicated students competed with the electric racing car "Green Garnet". It competed with 39 other teams from universities and universities of applied sciences from all over the world in the Formula Student Germany (FSG) - International Design Competition. The racing car is the third fully electric car from our team. The main focus this season was on improving efficiency and building an even more compact and maneuverable car than last year. The IRTe has managed to lighten the Green Garnet by 7kg compared to last year and to send a more compact car onto the race track by reducing the wheelbase by 90mm!

Despite strong competition, our Green Garnet bolide was able to secure 18th place, especially in the Engineering Design discipline, leaving most of the competition behind. We are looking forward to the next year with full enthusiasm to continuously improve our work!
