We would like to thank SpeedArtDesign in Mariestad for letting us and our friends at Linköping University attend their event yesterday. It was a great opportunity for us to show what we do and grow the awareness about formula student. We hope we sparked an interest in engineering among the young motorsport enthusiasts.

Thank you SpeedArtDesign and LiU Formula Student for a great day! #formulastudent #formulastudentsweden

Our last post was just before we were the first Swedish team to make it through the scrutineering. We then went on to achieve the best results in every one of the static events that Clear River Racing has ever had.

Unfortunately, we faced a lot of problems during the dynamic events such as a broken pedal box, water getting into the engine oil and a runner cracked in half. As a team we came together and using our engineering skills we solved all these problems and our car was running again.

Despite our hard work and dedication the car didn’t make it over the finish line at the final race due to overheating. The cause was a clamp on our cooling system that hadn't been properly tightened. The car was running with an empty cooling system for about 10 km until the driver change where the judges stopped us from continuing the race. Whether it was weak testing, lack of time or bad engineering that was the underlying problem we truly did experienced the downside of racing.

Despite this we took some major design steps this year when we managed to have a turbo charged engine running on ethanol and an aero kit equipped with a Drag Reduction System. This would not have been possible without all the support from Karlstads universitet and the companies that provided us the materials, services and their expertise.

The team of 2016 is very thankful for everything that we have learned from this year, which has truly helped us a lot on our way to become great engineers.

We will also take this final moment to wish next year's team the best of luck!
