Formula Student

Motion blur. Emotion blur. Focal length 85mm, aperture f/14.0 , shutter 1/50.

Last week I visited Formula Student Germany on the Hockenheim race track again and shot 700+ frames. The cars are fast, and shooting them at 1/8000 does not do them justice. I'd rather live with the blur.


best car, unfortunately not in the competition.

Aww. I saw the HAWks team a few times working on the car (as my father used to work in the department at the HAW). I always thought "wow, I wished my own university department would have had such a cool possibility for a project", unfortunately these are rare in environmental technologies :)

Too bad that there is no picture of the TU Darmstadt car.

Since i'm friends with one of the team members and did some photos at the official presentation i have to link the website here ;-)

They were rather unlucky during the dynamics; during the autocross they were slowed down by the accident of the car in front of them and during the endurance by oil on the track.

Sehr schönes Auto. Leider sieht man nur den Popo.
