Formula Student Cup with FaSTDa Racing - Development of a brake disc

The Formula SAE, better known as Formula Student is an international design competition to build a prototype race car with students. In events as Silverstone, Hockenheim or Michigan more than 500 teams from around the world are competing.

In the end not the team with the fastest car wins, but the team which can provide the best allround results, consisting of performance, design and efficiency. The task is the same for all teams, to develop a race car for the weekend-racer. Involved are students from diverse fields such as mechanical engineering, mechatronics and electrical engineering as well as industrial engineering, business administration or Media with industry and business contacts. The project provides the opportunity to put the theory from the study in practice, as well as a first technical experience and increasing social skills.

BrakeSTUFF is supporting the team of Racing FaSTDa of the University of Darmstadt since 2014 with the development and production of brake discs for their racecar. We will continue to support them with the upcoming 2017 season.
