Volkswagen steps up commitment to Formula Student and supports six university teams at Hockenheim

Volkswagen steps up commitment to Formula Student and supports six university teams at Hockenheim
  • Prof. Dr. Stefan Gies, Patron of Formula Student Germany: “Volkswagen is focusing on two technologies – autonomous driving and electric vehicles.”

Volkswagen is stepping up its commitment to the international design competition Formula Student Germany (FSG). This year, Volkswagen is supporting six university teams which are entering nine racing cars – more than ever before. The Wolfsburg company is focusing on two categories: “Driverless” for autonomous vehicles and “Electric” for racing cars with electric drive systems. Just before the works holidays, Volkswagen invited the selected racing teams to a warm-up training session at its Ehra-Lessien proving grounds for initial test laps and the fine tuning of their cars. Formula Student Germany is to be held on the Hockenheimring from August 7 to 12, 2018.
