Over many months the students of the Formula Student Team Weingarten designed, constructed and built their new racing car “Stinger 17”. Now the new vehicle for the season 2017 was officially presented. The upcoming races will prove whether it can succeed against the international competition and possibly eclipse the last year´s model “Stinger 16”, the most successful racing car of the Formula Student Team Weingarten.
The student’s project combines theory and praxis since 2006 by students committing far beyond their learned knowledge and gaining practical experience. Over the course of a year, they construct and build a Formula racing car within detailed regulations. Experts from the motor sport as well as the vehicle manufacturing and supply industries evaluate the complete package of construction, cost calculation, business plan and teamwork.
Since 2015 DEMMELER supports the team consisting of almost 50 students from different subject areas. Thanks to the modular 3D welding table and clamping system the team builds the steel trellis frame with precision and efficiency. With the D16 system for small and lightweight clamping and welding tasks the flexible adjustment of the refined vehicle frames is possible without any problems.
DEMMELER wishes the committed team much success in the new racing season 2017!
