Johannes Westh the 20-year-old student from the master program in mechanical engineering, is the leader of the engine group during Clear River Racing 2017. Johannes participated in the Clear River Racing 2016’s team, where he also worked in the engine group. He learned a lot during last years project and feels that he has great knowledge that can be valued during this year's project, which is one of the reasons he wanted to join this year's team as well. Johannes wants to encourage his team member to learn and develop during the project and hopes that everyone gets a chance to challenge themselves despite that everyone has different experiences.

Based on the errors that occurred during the competition last year where we lost a radiator hose and experience errors with the turbo, Johannes puts great valuable in creating a reliable engine package for this year’s car. One challenge that Johannes puts emphasis on is the to sure that every aspect of the car functions together.

Clear River Racing med Oscar Slaattelia Larsson.

Here we have 21-year-old Oscar Slaattelia Larsson our group leader for suspension and steering in the 2017 team!

He is a student at the innovation and design program, where he is finishing his final year. Oscar participated in the 2016 years’ team and had great ambitions regarding this year’s car, which is one of the reasons why he wanted to become a group leader. He believes that the team can learn and build upon the concept of last year’s edition, and construct an even greater car this year.

Oscar is new in this role as a leader and sees it as a challenge to teach other students his knowledge, although the role is new for him, he is optimistic that they will learn a lot during the project. He believes that it is important for the members of his group are free to solve their assignment on their own so that they can learn and evolve as the project continues.

The biggest challenge for the team according to Oscar is to finish building the car in time to test drive enough to detect errors early enough for them to be solved.

Three random questions
1. Cat or dog?
Dogs, always!
2. What’s your favorite food?
Hamburger
3. Sing or dance?

Clear River Racing med Amir Chihani.

Marketing/economy is one of our groups in the Clear River Racing project, and Amir Chihani is the man who got the leading role. Amir is 23-years old and is finishing his last year on his bachelor degree in innovation and design.

Amir is a new addition to Clear River Racing and is now one of our group leaders. When he heard that there was a possibility to join the project and become a leader, he instantly was interested, and based on his experience within sales he thought he had something to add to the project. He believes that being a group leader will challenge him and he is up for new challenges, although he often finds himself taking on leading role naturally, and feel comfortable and enthusiastic about supporting others to achieve well.

The vision for the group is to strengthen Clear River Racing’s brand, and Amir believes that marketing is an important factor of the project, which he wants to work hard on. He wants to focus on creating a strong brand, which encourages other students to participate and shows companies that Clear River Racing is a team that includes strong-willed students who have great knowledge in engineering and working in a large project.

Clear River Racing med Niklas Schön.

Our project leader for the Clear River Racing team 2017, is 23-year-old Niklas Schön. Beside from spending many hours on the project, he is working towards getting his bachelor degree in engineering, with the major innovation and design.

After being a team member in last year’s team, he saw the potential in constructing an even better car for 2017, and took the leap to become the project leader for the first time.

Niklas has a vision of creating a working space where every member can challenge themselves and feel appreciated, which he believes will contribute to a better and more efficient team.

Niklas goal for this year is to build a car that can complete all the dynamic elements at Silverstone with great results. With the knowledge of the mistakes and successes from 2016’s car, he believes that this is a very realistic goal. Along with this year’s team came an organizational structure change, which means that the groups are structured in a way that the knowledge the members acquire can be built upon as the project develops, instead of starting blank as the project phases along. This structure has been used within Clear River Racing a couple years ago, and Niklas believe that this structure can detect problems earlier and also solve them sooner. Which means that it will generate more test time to drive the car before the race

Three random questions
1. Who would you like to meet, dead or alive?
Henrik Larsson who is my biggest childhood idol from playing football for years.
2. Pepsi or Coke?
Coca Cola
3. Would you rather be without elbows or knees without?
Hmm
No elbows
