The UMA single-seater is on the podium in acceleration and endurance tests on the famous circuit

The Formula Student team from the University of Malaga took part in the international Formula Student Netherlands competition for the first time and won third place in the endurance and acceleration races held in Assen.

The MART Malaga Racing Team took part in the competition from July 11-15 along with 30 other Formula Student teams. To start the competition, they had to pass static and dynamic tests and present a business plan based on their single-seater.

During the acceleration test, the car’s ability to travel 75 meters in a straight line in the shortest possible time was assessed; the endurance test consisted of 22 laps of the Assen race circuit, with driver changes mid-course.

After a week of intense work with tests, preparations, dynamic and static tests, the teams had the award ceremony. The results were described by the participants as “a real success”.

The Malaga team, now back in the capital, will soon start preparing, after a period of evaluation, for the next competition which will take place in Barcelona from August 29 to September 4.
