e-gnition | Autonomous racing car with HOBUM logo

We are pleased to support e-gnition with a sponsorship this year.

“e-gnition” consists of more than 70 highly motivated students of the Technical University
Hamburg together. As part of Formula Student, an electric and autonomous racing car has been developed, constructed and tested every year since 2011.

At the end of the year, they will compete against teams from all over the world in the Electric and Driverless classes. Innovation and performance have been top priorities since the team was founded. Third place was achieved twice in the driverless class at the Hockenheimring. In addition to numerous podium places, victory in the Electric class was achieved in Austria in 2018.

The Formula Student is the largest engineering competition in the world. Around 800 teams with a total of over 40,000 members compete year after year to develop and construct the best racing car. The competition promotes the interdisciplinary education of the students. The challenges of the business world can also be found in Formula Student, such as the presentation, marketing and cost analysis of the racing cars.
