First place for Chalmers and TeXtreme

The 2012 Formula Student UK competitions resulted in a victory for the Chalmers Formula Student team from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, in car with a body made almost entirely from carbon fibre composites reinforced with Oxeon?s TeXtreme spread tow fabrics.
The Formula Student competition challenges student engineers to design, build and race a single seat racing car within a year. The cars are then judged on their speed, acceleration, handling and endurance in a series of time-trial races, while the teams are tested on their design, costing and business presentation skills.
