2017 was a remarkable year for EUFS. We greatly expanded our team size and solidifed our presence within the University. Our hard work was starting to get acknowledged by both students and academics, thus interest towards us grew. Attempts were made to make the society more welcoming by having more team meetings, CAD workshops and hands-on epxerience for newcomers.
After the bitter end of FSUK16 we decided to build the EUFS17 car from scratch, revamping all previous designs. This manifold itself in us having a new engine – Kawasaki ZX-6R.
FSUK 2017 marked a great year for EUFS as it was the first in which we competed in all dynamic events. Although we did not score well, it was only our second year as a class 1 team and we were pleased with our progress. Furthermore, this left us filled with motivation for the upcoming year.
