23 Jul '14 Update: Marorka team: Formula Student
As mentioned in a earlier blog a member of Marorka’s team, one of our summer interns, Gunnar Ingi Friðriksson, took part in the Formula Student event in England. An event organized by The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). The event is a racing competition between university teams of engineers. Over a hundred teams from 38 different countries are competing in this year’s event, held 9-13 July, at the Silverstone racetrack in the UK. This year’s overall winner was TU Delft, from the Delft University of Technology.
This year’s Icelandic car, which is the third car designed by the Icelandic team (Team Spark) from the University of Iceland, did not get through scrutineering, and therefore not driven on the track. However the Icelandic team Spark won Best Newcomer, and landed in 8th place for best Business Presentation. Furthermore, Team Spark took 14th place for Cost and Sustainability presentation where they excelled, which is a great result. We congratulate Team Spark for an excellent performance.
