Development project Formula StudentInfinity Racing relies on cables from WireMasters
Through their own initiative and teamwork, students of the University of Kempten e.V. developed, designed, manufactured and marketed a single-seat formula racing car. Already in 2011, the Infinity Racing Team with the TOMSOI III placed third overall at the Spanish Formula Student competition.
Formula Student - International Student Competition
Every year students from different countries develop and build a real racing car. To measure the students' performance, the teams compete against each other with their racing cars in eight different disciplines in international competitions.
Since 2010 WireMasters has been supporting the University of Kempten team. "To us, these practical experiences are important," says CEO Peter Ullinger during a presentation of the new TOMSOI VII. From 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds: the TOMSOI VII bolide catapults forward at max. capacity, promising another exciting racing season at the international Formula Student. For years, the students of the University of Kempten have stood their ground at this competition with their racing car project, relying on cables and components from WireMasters.
The resistance to heat, oil and fuels makes the particularly thin-walled insulated cables of the Spec55 range a favourite for Jakob Herrmann, spokesperson for the Infinity Racing Team. Other top products of WireMasters offer racing-enthusiast vehicle designers additional freedom to optimise technology designs: a special elastomer shrink tubing with waterproof connector backshell protects the cable harness near the engine from heat and oil. Vibration-proof connectors ensure functional reliability during many races. The system is made complete with special WireMasters motor sport connectors, for the connection of control units developed by the team itself.
Both partners look forward to continuing the cooperation - the students of the Infinity Racing Team require and promote the long-standing cable technology expertise of WireMasters in their very own way.
