We have the results! It’s good! In the general classification, the CMS-08 car of the Cerber Motorsport team from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering came 5th! We were close to the podium, but in the most important static competition – the Engineering Design Event – we won second place!

 
 
 
 
 
 
The atmosphere on the racetrack at Formula SAE Italy was equally heated as emotions in anticipation of the results. The imagination was further heated by our success in the Engineering Design Event competition, in which we came 2nd. But we can cool down now, we have the final results of the first series of the Formula Student competition! Our Cerber Motorsport team from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering took 5th place overall and a double 4th place in the dynamic competitions. Congratulations to the whole team! And here is a full summary of the achievements at the competition in Italy:

  • Dynamic Events:
    Acceleration Event: 4th place
    Autocross Event: 4th place
    Skidpad Event: 6th place
    Endurance & Efficiency Event: 5th place
  • Static Events:
    Engineering Design Event: 2nd place
    Cost & Manufacturing Event: 5th place
    Business Presentation Event: 22nd place
  • Final standings: 5th place

We hope that more achievements lie ahead! We wish you good luck on the race track in the Czech Republic and then in Austria, Hungary and Germany!

Solutions used:
– fully adjustable multi-link suspension allowing full adjustment to changing track conditions,

– hybrid superstructure – combining a steel spaceframe with a composite “monocoque” for increased rigidity,

– laminated safety rim,

– display responsible for displaying and storing the most important operating parameters,

– telemetry equipped with 33 sensors,

– engine cover to reduce drag,

– active cooling of the engine area,

– proprietary camshafts,

– modified engine block, which enabled the use of an improved engine sump,

– more efficient and lighter cooling system,

– limited-slip differential with preload control,

– drag reduction system (DRS).

The authorities of the City of Bialystok support student travel to competitions outside Poland.

Subsidised by the Minister of Science and Higher Education with funds from the state budget as part of the programme ‘Studenckie koła naukowe tworzą innowacje’.

The Cerber Motorsport team operating within the Student Auto-Moto-Club at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of Bialystok University of Technology. The organisation was established in November 2011 by 17 students, passionate about cars. Over the years, more than 200 people have worked on eight generations of CMS cars. Today, the team consists of 31 people and is divided into 6 sub-teams: Aerodynamics, Electronics, Suspension, Engine and Propulsion, Superstructure, Marketing. The main objective of the Student Club is to win the top position in the prestigious international Formula Student competitions. They are held annually in more than 15 countries, with more than 800 teams, which is almost 31,000 members. Students design and build a car that competes against teams from all over the world. Winning the competition is not only determined by the speed of the car, construction, financial and sales planning are equally important. The competition is divided into static and more spectacular dynamic competitions. Judges are mainly constructors closely associated with the automotive industry.

As the first Polish team, Cerber Motorsport podiumed at the Formula SAE Italy competition in 2016. This competition also brought second places in the competitions: Acceleration, Endurance and Skidpad. The following years also saw a series of successes. One of the most important goals of the Student Club is to create an ever better car and to introduce innovative solutions to improve its performance, which translates into winning places. Combining theory with practice, and at the same time having fun and competing are synonymous with the Cerber Motorsport Team.
