We at AAU Racing are a team of students from Aalborg University that compete in the Formula Student, a worldwide engineering competition. At the competition, our engineering design, business plan, cost analysis and racing performance gets evaluated. Our aim as a team, is to produce fast, reliable cars and to continuously improve.

With few exceptions, all parts of the car are designed by team members, while manufacturing is split between the team and several sponsors. Thereby, we follow the parts all the way from the initial design phase to testing in the car. All of this is done in our spare time, to expand our knowledge and to get some fantastic experiences. This also includes the challenges managing a complex project by combining several different areas of expertise. Due to this, we hope to not only become a great racing team, but also to provide our members a wider knowledge base and valuable experience by the time we complete our education.

I dag var en gruppe fra holdet ude at køre på Køreteknisk Anlæg, Støvring, for at undersøge det tekniske problem, som opstod til konkurrencen i Holland. Fejlen tyder på at stamme fra den elektriske startmotor, og der kan nu arbejdes mod en løsning. Resten af eftermiddagen gik med at få kørt en masse, så de nye holdmedlemmer kunne prøve bilen. Dagen var altså både udbytterig og sjov.

------------------
This afternoon was spent at Køreteknisk Anlæg, Støvring, where the car was tested in order to locate the technical issue that occurred during the competition in the Netherlands. After the source of the issue was located a handful of new team members had a chance to try the car. All in all the day was constructive as well as great fun.

Så er sæsonen sat igang. Holdet har i dag lavet tidsplan for året, så vi kan få struktur på det store projekt. Rigtig mange brikker skal falde på plads før vi har en færdig bil.

The new season has finally started. Today was all about planning as the team made a time schedule for the rest of the year. Finishing a complex project like this depends a lot on planning.
