From the 19.07.2017 to the 23.07.2017 we participated in the FSEast in Hungary.
We had to travel breathtaking 1200 km through Europe to arrive at the Euroring in Hungary. Once we arrived we prepared the pit and our camp and took a good night of sleep.
We started our day at six o'clock in the morning. At seven thirty the pits were opened and scrutineering began. We prepared our car and managed to complete a part of our technical inspections the same day. During noon the panoramic picture was taken with every participating team beeing present.

We did not have much free time at Friday. Besides the scrutineering we also competed in the statics. In the morning the business plan presentation was held, followed by the Design Report and after lunch the Cost Report. In white shirts and black trousers our team had to keep their cool in the sun showing the judges what they worked on the last year.
As soon as possible we were back at the car working to get it scrutineered. We managed to complete the inspections but in the end missed the time to participate in the brake test. This meant that we were not allowed to participate in any dynaminc events. From the spectator stand we were able to cheer for the other competing teams and enjoy the undescirbable feeling of sportsmanyship at Formula Student events.
Due to the missing permission to drive our car we woke late at sunday and went back to the spectator stands to watch the endurance around noon. At the Award Ceremony we were surprised, to win the National Instruments Special Award, for the most innovation in an electric car in comparison to its predecessor. This was a nice reward for the work we put in the last year, switching to an all wheel drive and remodelling most of our car from the ground.
We managed to find out a lot about our car, which we can improve before we participate in Austria. We also trained our presentatino skills in the Statics and will therefor start very well prepared into the next events. With our pokal, we take a token home, to remind us that each time further improving and trying out new concepts ist what it is all about in the Formula Student.
