The Formula Student Team Delft has participated in the Formula Student Germany e.V. competition. Although they had prepared the car the best they could. They were unfortunately met with a series of setbacks which resulted in a 13th place overall. The car performed well overall but they were disqualified at the endurance event of the competition. This happened because the car has a front wing that is not rigidly mounted to the chassis, but is mounted to the suspension system. During the endurance one of the rods most likely loosened up causing the wing to lower on one side of the vehicle. At the end of the endurance event in Parc Fermé, the car was no longer compliant with the regulation due to its ride height being too low. The team will figure out a way to prevent this from happening again and are now focusing fully on the oncoming Formula Student competition in Spain.
