115 teams of students in the field of engineering from all over the world recently competed against each other at the Hockenheimring in the course of the Formula Student Germany. Present during the race as the main sponsor was Henkel, supporting the teams with Loctite and Teroson solutions and looking for the best up-and-coming student engineers. Henkel has been part of the race since 2009, supporting students who are interested in automobile technology through its “Best use of Adhesives Award."

The Formula Student Germany offers students an opportunity to display their engineering skills each year, encouraging them to be dedicated to the field of engineering. The student participants have to design single-seat formula racing cars, which should convince the jury through their construction, performance, financial and sales planning. During the construction phase, the teams receive coaching assistance from Henkel. The aim is not to crown the fastest car as winner, but to rate the best overall package. The vehicles carried the Loctite logo on them.

All 115 teams, 57 of them from Germany, competed against each other at the Hockenheimring. At the initial phase, each team makes a presentation which highlights their implementation of adhesives. Afterwards their implementation of adhesives is assessed and rated. Students from the Technical University of Vienna emerged winners of this year’s “Best use of Adhesives Award”. Finally on Sunday, the 4th of August, there was a 22km car race for all vehicles, which was the highlight of the whole event. The proud winners of the race were the German-American team “Global Formula Racing” from the DHBW Ravensburg and the Oregon State University. The teams from the Universities of Stuttgart and Esslingen in Germany got the second and third place respectively.
