Formula 1 in Schools

The HLRS sponsored "Panternight-Racing" Team won an outstanding third place at the regional championship South-West with their CO² propelled model size Formula 1 car. They further earned a special award for the best aural presentation!

The team consists of three scholars, Felix Harst, Leo Sandrisser and Jule Harst from the “Mönchsee-Gymnasium”, Heilbronn. Goal of the project is to design, optimize and manufacture a model size Formula 1 car. They simulated the aerodynamics of their racing car on HLRS supercomputers and analyzed the simulation result in the “CAVE”, a 3D virtual environment, using the visualization software COVISE.
