We start towards the future
No other nation in the world loves cars as much as the Germans do. This is why Germany is working flat out on new technologies such as electromobility in order to meet new challenges such as environmental awareness and greater sustainability. However, previous developments by carmakers with electric cars lacked all emotions.
This was both the incentive and the starting signal for e-gnition Hamburg, the Formula Student Team of the Technical University of Hamburg. As a newcomer team in the 2011/2012 season, e-gnition competed for the first time at the Hockenheim Ring and Silverstone - the most prestigious Formula Student events in Europe. As the only team so far, they managed to put a moving racing car on its wheels within a year. It shows how much fun building an electric car can be.
Around 60 students from various engineering disciplines at the TUHH are working on the design and production to present two racing cars that they have developed and tested themselves. The result is a racing car with impressive characteristics: acceleration values of less than three seconds to 100 km/h are possible. In addition, e-gnition Hamburg is one of the first participants in the Formula Student Driverless competition and drives its autonomous electric racing car there.
Bürklin GmbH & Co. KG believes in e-gnition and supports its promising ideas and work with indispensable material. Without the countless small electronic components, which are not visible at first glance, no racing car could start.

On the pole position - with Bürklin electronics
The Tufast Racing Team of the TU Munich is a student association of highly co-edited budding engineers who have set themselves the goal of designing, constructing and manufacturing a new formula racing car every year as part of the Formula Student SAE competition. All of them comply with the strict Formula SAE regulations and can therefore take part in the corresponding competitions all over the world.
In 2019, Tufast will build two electric racing cars. One for races with driver and one for the "Driveless" category, in which the car drives autonomously.
At the international competitions you will meet racing teams from all over the world and represent your university in various disciplines. The competitions take into account not only the driving dynamics of the car, but above all its construction, the costs and the fictitious marketing concept of the racing car as a small series.
Bürklin Elektronik promotes the commitment of the TUfast Racing Team and supports the innovative developments in laboratory and workshop with active and passive components, housings for the installation of the electric circuit and also with various workshop equipment.
