Team History

HWR-12 (FS2023)

HWR-12 is the car currently under development for FS2023. It is a refinement of the 11 design with a couple of new subsystems, such as regenerative braking and a data collection unit.

HWR-11 (FS2022)

HWR-11 was the team's first FS-class entry in 3 years, its first electric entry, and its first entry with an aerodynamics package. It scored well at statics, but didn't manage to compete in the dynamic events. It came 20th overall out of 63, and 9th out of 27 in the electric category.

HWR-X (FS2020)

HWR-X was intended to compete in FS2020. It was the team's first electric entry, but was entered in concept class due to the pandemic.

HWR-10.2 (FS2021)

HWR-10.2 was the attempt to build HWR-X for entry into FS2021. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, workshop access was severely limited and the car was entered as concept class.

HWR-09 (FS2019)

HWR-09 was our final internal combustion car. It was built by a team of 28 with extensive weight-saving in mind, but didn't perform as well as its predecessor, failing to pass the brake test and suffering from a steering failure. The car entered endurance but retired after 3 laps.

HWR-08 (FS2018)

HWR-08 was our car for 2018. Although not quite as successful as 07, it still performed well, completing endurance despite an engine overheat. It was our first car to have a spool instead of a differential, and the first car where the chassis and suspension were designed in-sync.

HWR-07 (FS2017)

HWR-07 was our 2017 entry. The 16-man team went through a more thorough design process and managed to test the car for 336km, which paid off with a 6th-place result overall. It later formed the basis for the team's first electric vehicle design project.

HWR-06 (FS2016)

HWR-06 was our car for 2016. It was an evolution of the 04 design, and was built with a focus on reliability by a team of 17. This car was our first to complete all dynamic events.

HWR-16 (FS2015)

HWR-16 was the 2015 entry for HWRacing. Originally intended to compete in FS class, it had to be entered into concept class as chassis manufacture didn't go to plan. The car was a completely new design and faced management problems, but ended up coming 5th. This car is notable for having broken the numbering scheme.

HWR-05 (FS2014)

HWR-05 was intended to compete in FS2014. There were a number of problems with this car, such as an out-of-tolerance chassis, poor drivetrain integration, and a lack of analysis of the failures of 04.

HWR-04 (FS2013)

HWR-04 was our entry into FS2013. The differential broke right before competition, but the car was rescuied by the team of 16 and passed all of scrutineering before breaking while practicing at the skid pad.

HWR-03 (FS2012)

HWR-03 was the team's third entry, competing in 2012. It was the team's most successful car before 06, and came 47th overall. The car was built by a team of 24 with a focus on ergonomics, such as driver comfort, field-of-view, and new controls.

HWR-02 (FS2011)

HWR-02 was our 2011 entry. Built by 12 team members, it was a big change from HWR-02, despite using the same engine. At competition it got out onto the track, but had to retire due to a mechanical failure.

HWR-01 (FS2010)

HWR-01 was our first car, built by a team of 8 and entered in 2010. It was powered by a Honda CBR600RR motorbike engine, and came 53rd overall, with good static results despite failing scrutineering.
