Who we are:

Align Racing is a group of students at the University of Agder (UiA), with a commom goal of competing in Formula Student. Our team consists of students from a wide variety of disciplines. Engineers, economists, marketers and designers  are all working together to build a great car and an even greater team.

”Students coming together achieving greatness!”

Combining interdisciplinary teamwork with a healthy dose of competitive spirit is what the Formula Student competition is all about. In July 2018 we competed in  FSUK,  which is an annual competition for students all over the world. The team and our first race car did the job beyond all expectations and we ere proud of being awarded “Best newcomer”.

production phases, and what they are about.
  • 1: Concept development

To build the best racecar possible, the team must plan out how the car will be built, and prepare for any challenges that can come up during the process from the planning phase to the finished product.

  • 2: Design

The design phase will include drawing and 3D-modeling every part of the car before it will be built. This is important to establish how the different parts of the car will be assembled, and how the end-product will look.

 

  • 3: Production

In the production phase our team members assembles and produce the car according to the plans and 3D-models which was developed in the design phase. It is important that the build quality of the car is good enough to participate safely in the competition.

  • 4: Testing

The car is tested in a series of different static and dynamic tests at silverstone, in order to determine the build-quality of the car, how it performs in comparison to the other Formula student cars, and the effort of the team. The car is judged based on the performance in the tests. Read more about the The competition.
