(businesspress24) - Leading international manufacturer of components and systems for optical and electrical connectivity, HUBER+SUHNER, is sponsoring two teams at this year’s Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IME) Formula Student event at Britain’s iconic Silverstone circuit.

Formula Student is Europe''s most established educational motorsport competition, run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and backed by industry and high profile engineers, such as Ross Brawn OBE. The competition aims to inspire and develop enterprising and innovative young engineers. Universities from across the globe are challenged to design and build a single-seat racing car in order to compete in static and dynamic events, which demonstrate their understanding and test the performance of the vehicle.

HUBER+SUHNER headquarters is sponsoring the AMZ Racing team based in the Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) and also providing cabling for their build. HUBER+SUHNER India has given its backing to the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay Racing team, also supplying cables.

“The Formula Student event is a fantastic initiative that champions the great work Engineering students are doing across the world,” said Frank Rothe, who heads the Automotive Market Unit at HUBER+SUHNER. “We’re delighted to have helped two of the teams here today showcase their talents on an iconic stage like Silverstone.”

Each participating team is tasked to produce a prototype for a single-seat race car for autocross or sprint racing, and present it to a hypothetical manufacturing firm. The car must be low in cost, easy to maintain, and reliable, with high performance in terms of its acceleration, braking, and handling qualities. During the competition each team must demonstrate the logic behind their proposal and must be able to demonstrate that it can support a viable business model for both parties.

“This event is massively valued within the industry, and we are excited to see what the 2016 batch of young engineers has to offer,” concluded Rothe.



The Formula Student event runs from 14-17 July, 2016, at Silverstone Circuit, Northamptonshire. Tickets are available from http://formulastudent.imeche.org.
