Our team is established in 2018 as Sabanci Motorsport Technologies. As a result of the ambition by the member students and with the support of the academic advisors, the team has been evolving ever since, with the aim of participating and showing success in Formula SAE.
We have attended Formula Student UK 2019 for the first time with our technical and financial analysis as a Class 2 team, at which our team was 3rd among the 10 newcomer teams; while becoming 14th among the 37 teams in the financial planning and production evaluation.
Our primary aim is to build a sustainable system that will enable the team to produce a competitor racecar for FORMULA SAE. Our first car will be the first electric racecar that attended the Formula SAE competitions from Turkey.
After the results in FS UK’19, we developed a long-term plan that will enable us to build our design, according to the feedbacks we received. As a result of this, we are planning to make a strong entrance to the Formula SAE competitions.
The interdisciplinary approach adopted by the university aims to cultivate knowledge, support education, and facilitate social advancement. This enables the team to proceed faster and work more efficiently, despite the program differences of our 38 members and support team.
