Newsflash May 2022
Updated: Jun 25
Dear friends, dear supporters and dear fans!
We are back with a new update from the production period of EDGE13.
Livestream Rollout EDGE13
When the members start pouring through the workshop’s entrance and the nightshifts get more frequent and longer there is only one conclusion: The Rollout must be right around the corner. Indeed, our Rollout will take place very soon on June 27th. You can watch the presentation live on our Youtube Channel starting at 7:00 pm. Next to exciting production insights you can expect Guest speakers as well as a season review, followed by the grand finale: The reveal of our EDGE13!
Ready to Race!
For 20 members of our team, May started directly on the race track, as we held our Driver Selection on the1st of May. However, to become a driver for TU Wien Racing one requires more than decent timing on the kart track. Next to speed, driving style, knowledge of our vehicle as well as availability during events and test drives play a crucial role in the process of driver selection.
Now our new drivers can look forward to demonstrating their driving skills at the upcoming Formula Student events.
New Year - New Racing Track!
This summer we will not only present our new racing car, but we also found a new location for car testing thanks to Driving Camp Pachfurth. Of course, our team tried out the new track immediately with our EDGE12 for data collection. We cannot wait to come again with the EDGE13 and are looking forward to successful cooperation with Driving Camp Pachfurth.
Meet the Team - Wiener Elektrotage
If you missed us at the TUWac summer festival, you can meet us at the upcoming event “Wiener Elektrotage”. From June 15th to 19th we will exhibit our EDGE12 next to leading electric car manufacturers. Good to know: The entrance is free of charge.
Our Summer Program 2022: Formula Student
While we are eagerly working on the EDGE13, our static teams are preparing for the upcoming competitions as well. Preparations for the business plan, cost report and engineering design have been going on for months and are gradually turning into finished presentations.
Well prepared, we will be ready for our first competition in a few weeks: Formula Student Netherlands.
