As we begin our competition in Germany, the team would like to give a huge shout-out to TU-Dartmstadt (Dart Racing) for hosting us for the 3rd straight year. Simply getting the cars to Germany is difficult enough, and TU-Darmstadt makes the rest of the trip so much easier by providing us with lodging, testing facilities, and good company on top of it all. Over the past three years our teams have created an excellent partnership -- one that we hope to continue in future years.
Best of luck to Dart Racing at Formula Student, The UW Huskies are all rooting for you!

Starting today, the University of Washington Formula Motorsports team is competing with teams from across the globe at the Formula West competition in Lincoln, Nebraska. The team will pit our internal combustion and electric cars against other collegiate teams from the USA and International engineering schools.
With a backdrop of blue skies, the first day of competition, June 18, will have preliminary technical inspections and opening ceremonies to round out the day.
One of the main difficulties for the UW team is that we are one team with two cars, meaning that there is only a few minutes between some of the combustion car and electric car events - keeping us always on our toes.
By Saturday, June 21, all of the teams who competed during the preceding days will find out what their hard work has earned them.
Last year, the UW team left Lincoln placed 1st overall for our combustion car and 2nd overall for our electric. This year, we hope to take home all of the first place trophies.
