06/10/2014 Once again, students from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg have created a winning prototype race car for a series of international student races.

Each year, Chalmers students compete against teams from 75 European universities in the ‘Formula Student’ international race car competition. Students are given the task of building a race car for competitions all over Europe, where the vehicles are judged in various categories before a final winner is selected in each category.

In the UK competition, the Chalmers car reached the top six in the design category. The car was fine-tuned for the subsequent German competition, resulting in an honourable third place overall finish.

Lesjöfors Industrifjädrar in Herrljunga has sponsored the Chalmers team for many years with custom-made chassis springs.

"It's inspiring to be involved in the development of new products together with future engineers who often think outside the box and question things in a new way. Furthermore, the development of an advanced product with limited budget means that Lesjöfors as a sponsor is an important key to success", says Niklas Movitz, Key Account Manager at Lesjöfors Industrifjädrar.
