KTM Lightweight Award

KTM Group LogoWhen developing a race car, the discussion quickly leads to compromises. Power, weight and performance are decision criteria when the speed of the race car is concerned.

KTM focuses on lightweight construction and aims to find the best lightweight concept of this year’s Formula Student cars.

The following aspects are considered:

  • Lightweight concept of the whole car, with regard to:
    • Total weight
    • Power to weight ratio
    • Center of gravity
  • Use of lightweight materials
  • Use of simulation tools to reduce the total mass
  • Lightweight construction of technical details (present your most sophisticated component in terms of lightweight construction)
