We are incredibly happy that on Friday 10th June, exactly one year after the premiere of RT11, we could present our next car to you. The premiere is always a huge event for our Team, so we are extremely pleased that the invited guests and our relatives came to this event in such large numbers. In addition to the unveiling of RT12e there was a summary of the work of the entire Team, as well as speeches by the invited guests. We thanked the companies and institutions supporting our project. After the official part there was an opportunity to see the vehicle up close and talk to our constructors and ask about the details of the latest project.
This year’s premiere was exceptional – we presented the first electric car in the history of the Team, equipped with an autonomous driving system. The design of the RT12e was quite a challenge for us. While most of the Teams decide to switch to electric or autonomous driving systems first, we decided to do it in one season. After 11 years of building combustion vehicles, we are opening a new chapter in the history of the PWR Racing Team. The transition to an electric and autonomous car, involves not only changes in the design and appearance of the car, but also a reorganization of the entire structure and the way the Team works.
We can’t wait to start racing the RT12e. This year we will compete in 4 editions of Formula Student competitions including the famous Hungaroring and Hockenheimring. We will start next month in Czech Republic where we will compete in electric class. August will be a very busy month for us, because we will appear at 3 competitions in Germany, Croatia and Hungary. In addition to electric class we will also take part in driverless competitions.
