On March 21st the FST 10e made its firsts meters in a testing session that resulted in this much anticipated moment: the first lap of the FST 10e!
This testing session, which didn’t include the FST 10e aerodynamic package, took place at Instituto Superior Técnico. We started by mechanical checks and had to adapt to the unforeseen situations that occurred. After 15 laps, the test was interrupted due to some problems on the braking system.
There is still a lot of work to do! All detected problems will be analysed and corrected. We will be focused on ensuring that the FST 10e succeeds on all the scrutineering inspections required for Formula Student competitions. With tireless work from the whole team, we are getting closer and closer to achieving our goals for the upcoming competition season!
