Our team

Our team consists of university students who, in addition to their studies, expand their knowledge and experience with our unique project. In our seven departments, nearly 60 members work every day to achieve our goals. The work of the departments is closely related to each other, which is why proper and accurate communication is important in order for the processes to proceed smoothly.

Leadership

Management

The primary goal of our department is to support the construction side. This includes order management, sponsorship contact, and financial management. In addition, our department is responsible for all kinds of communication, event organization, HR-related administration and other projects.

Design

Our department deals with the design of every single component that belongs to the engine and the brake pad. Before planning, we run various finite element and lifetime simulations on the components. If these operations are satisfactory, after the preparation of the technical documentation, we will turn to our production supporters, who will produce our designs with a short deadline and with impeccable quality.

Electronics

Among the tasks of our expert are the maintenance and development of electronic systems, and sometimes the construction of a new network. These include the engine cable harness, the cable harness of our starting stand, the complete wiring network of our brake bench measuring system and the provision of the IT background of the measuring system.

Testbench

The task of our department is to achieve the inherent performance of our engine with the new engine controller optimized for individual components. Calibration and validation are carried out on our motorcycle brake bench designed, manufactured and operated by us, which is an exceptional situational advantage for us, as no other European team has its own brake bench. In addition, the application plays an important role for us, with which the service life of our engine becomes adequate even with the increased performance. During the competitions, we are responsible for the analysis of the engine data, so we are active participants in the test days and the competitions as well.

Hybrid powertrain development

Our department was founded in the fall of 2021 with the ambition to make the hybrid system made possible by the new rule functionally built into cars by 2023. According to the rules, max. A 60V network can be used, and apart from setting the maximum average power (5kW), we have a free hand in terms of the drive. Another major project of the department is the design and then testing of the battery pack, which has a capacity of nearly 500Wh.

Thermodynamics

Our department mainly deals with the solution of thermodynamic problems in the team, such as the design of the oil circuit and its optimization using 3D and 2D programs, or even the development of the exhaust system and its fine-tuning using various programs. In the department, we also deal with combustion processes and the processing of its data, which is essential for the operation of a racing engine. For example, optimization of the Airbox or parts of the processes taking place in the combustion chamber. In the department, we also deal with combustion processes and the processing of its data, which is essential for the operation of a racing engine.

Test

The main task of our department is the installation of engines and auxiliary equipment, ensuring their race-ready condition. Furthermore, we deal with the application and testing of new parts, the planning of car tests and their evaluation.
