ER19

The main technical goal for ER19 was to improve the driveability of car, this ambition influenced every design decision made during the fall. The powertrain was designed to deliver a smoother powerband, while maintaining similar peak power figures. Data collection increased in order to monitor the car behavior and draw parallels between driver feedback and performance trends. The driver position was adjusted with ergonomics in mind. Front and rear suspension was fully redesigned in order to enhance kinematics and cornering behavior. Consequently, the frame was also redesigned to accommodate the new suspension pick up points. The torsional stiffness of the new design was significantly higher than previous years.

The vehicle also marked many firsts for the association. In-house made full prepreg carbon fiber body panels and a partially 3D printed Inconel 718 exhaust system to mention a few. During the summer of 2019 the car competed at FS Netherlands, where an 11th overall placement was achieved. Two weeks later the car competed at FSUK, where the team finished  19th.
