The team has maneged to complete the designphase of the 5th Unicorn racer. The result is based on experience from both 3rd and 4th generation Unicorn racers. The improvement of the design has mainly been focused on better durability and weight reduction. Among many changes I can revile that we have cut substantial weight, by redesigning drive-train and a different shock-absorber type. Further changes of the chassis design has been necessary to comply with the 2011 rule set, the complete chassis weighs in at 28 kg (estimated).

We have started the fabrication of the new car, and the chassis should soon be assembled. The lasercutting of all the  tubes for the space-frame has been done by our sponsor Hosta Industries A/S, which has been a great help. The work continues at a steady pace, and w
e are making good progress.

Regarding to team members Unicorn is a young team. As a result of this, have the design phase taken longer than expected, and the same is expected for the construction phase. Therefore we have chosen not to participate in the official competitions this year.
We are working to have the new car (G5), ready for the middle of august this year.
We are looking forward to the summer 2012, there the car is ready for some racing...

On the tabs above you can read more about the team organization, details on the cars, pictures and movies from the different events throughout the team’s history, and much more. Enjoy.. Further info about the formula student competition can be found below.

The formula student (or Formula SAE outside europe) competition is a racing / engineering series, which challenge teams of different university students to conceive, design, fabricate and compete with small, formula style, autocross vehicles. To give the maximum design flexibility, the rules of the series gives very few restrictions on the overall vehicle design. The main part of the rules is intended to issue concerns about safety and explain the different events at the competitions. The latest rules can be found here. The main design objective for the vehicles in the series is to have a very high performance in terms of acceleration, braking and handling and be sufficiently durable to successfully complete all the events at the competition. As mentioned above, the competition is subdivided into different events, both static representing the engineering part and dynamic representing the racing (and testing) part.
