Welcome to Clear River Racing

For eight consecutive years Clear River Racing are building a car to compete in the most established educational motorsport competition in Europe which take place at the Silverstone circuit in UK, Formula student.The team consists of students from Karlstad University that are designing and building the car from scratch. The aim of Formula Student and Clear river racing is to inspire and develop enterprising and innovative young engineers.

Sandra Nilsson is 25 years old and is studying for a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering. She is responsible for CAD, Cost and Sustainability. She is also the group leader for the Economics and external relations in our project. Of course her vision is for all of us to be able to compete at Silverstone but she also wants everyone involved to learn a lot on the way and to have fun while doing so. Because, if people are having fun they are motivated and more able to keep to deadlines, she says with a smile. Something she wants everyone to keep in mind is not only what they are doing, but more importantly why they are doing it. Hopefully more people at our university will realize just how great of an opportunity this project is and how much one learns from it. Not only will you learn about the project itself, but also who you are as a person.
Thank you Sandra for this interview!

Felix Wulff
Another great team member and also our group leader for wheels and suspension is Felix Wulff. He is producing inserts at the moment, but we managed to interview him at the same time.

Felix Wulff is a 20-years old Bachelor of Science student within mechanical engineering on his fourth term.
His goal as the group leader for wheels and suspension is of course to get as good results as possible and he will reach this goal by testing more than previous years. Some big changes since previous years are that they have changed the position of the front dampers a little by moving them up approximately ten millimeter. He has also chosen to change the material in the back pushrod from carbon fiber to steel because the high temperature from the exhaust system.

The biggest change from last year is that the group has chosen to build a safer steering method all from scratch. Instead of one horizontal and one vertical steering rod they have choose to have a bit of an angle on both rods.

From the beginning there were five people in the group but unfortunately three of them dropped out. This made the whole thing very stressful but after one of the member in the media group changed to wheels and suspension everything was under control again.

Felix is looking forward to the rest of the project and of course to Silverstone this summer.

We thanks Felix and let him keep working with the inserts!
