Hi there! Your support can help us build a very lightweight and competitive race car to, once again, surprise the known and experienced Formula Student teams during Germany's competition in 2017!

HFS goes lightweight!

- English below! - 

Voor het ontwerpen, bouwen en racen van een nieuwe auto hebben we niet alleen ingenieurs en managers nodig, maar ook de steun van onze sponsoren en donateurs.

Na het succes van vorig jaar heeft het team ontzettend veel geleerd om het HFS naar een hoger niveau te tillen. Het afgelopen jaar hebben we een heel betrouwbare auto gemaakt die het gehele Formula Student event in Duitsland zonder problemen heeft doorstaan. We begrepen van de organisatie en van verschillende andere deelnemers dat dit een ongekende prestatie was voor een eerstejaars team zoals wij. Daar zijn we natuurlijk heel trots op. We zijn 50ste geeindigd van de 73 deelnemers in onze klasse.

Dit jaar willen we niet alleen het gehele event uitrijden, maar ook een concurrerende auto maken. We mikken op een eindplek in de top 25. Met de ervaring van het afgelopen jaar hebben we ingezien hoe we op bijna elk vlak de auto kunnen verbeteren, dat geeft enorm veel potentie voor dit jaar.

Ons doel voor de auto is om zo’n 100 tot 120kg te besparen, want de HFS-01 was met 298,5kg aan de zware kant. Het verliezen van zoveel gewicht gaan we onder andere behalen door het gebruiken van een ander motorblok en een beter op maat ontworpen chassis.

Met het motorblok, een KTM 690 1-cilinder, besparen we al 30kg en het concept van het chassis weegt ook al bijna  30kg minder dan het chassis van de eerste auto.

We willen onze familie en vrienden vragen om ons in dit project te steunen door een donatie te doen. En zoals u ziet kunt u daar een leuke terug verdienste voor krijgen!
Met het geld kunnen wij investeren in lichtere materialen of onderdelen zoals remmen en velgen. Hierdoor kunnen wij ons team en de Hogeschool Arnhem Nijmegen weer op de kaart zetten tijdens het populairste Formula Student event ter wereld, op het circuit van Hockenheim in Duitsland.

Our team needs engineers and managers to complete our project, but we can't exist without our sponsors and donators. This is where you can help out this challenging student project to build the best Formula Student car possible!

After last years succes, we learned an incredible amount about designing a racecar which gives us a lot of potential for this year. Last year we focussed on building a reliable car that would just work. We did exactly that and completed every dynamic event in the Formula Student Germany (FSG) compitition. This is where we got a lot of compliments by the organisation of FSG and multiple other teams.

This year however, we also want to apply all the lessons learned from last year to build not only a reliable car, but a fast one as well. 
Our first car weight in at 295,5kg, about 100kg heavier then the avarage Formula Student car. This limits the car in both speed and handling and we found a few very efficient ways to make the new car lighter. Our goal is to get the total weight of the car under 200kg and start with a lighter engine. Our new KTM 690 1 cilinder engine saves 30kg already and the concept of our new chassis also saves 30kg.
But we're not there yet, we need your support for other components of the car for wheels, tyres, brakes or safety equiment in the car.

As you can see there are a few very interesting rewards for the amount of money you donate!
