BGRacing TEAM 2022

BGRacing (Ben Gurion University’s Formula Student Team) Made History in Formula Students (FS) International Race Competitions with their Electric Race Car

This August, the Ben Gurion University students’ formula team, BGRacing, made history by being the first Israeli team to participate in and complete Formula Students (FS) International race competitions with an electric race car they designed and built.

First, BGRacing participated in the prestigious Formula Student Germany FSG2022 competition in the Grand Prix Formula One track in Hockenheim. One hundred international teams from across the globe participated in this competition, where 69 of them had an electric race car.

Next, BGRacing participated in the Rimac Group Formula Student Alpe Adria FSAA2022 competition in Croatia with 35 other international teams.

This achievement is expected to contribute significantly to Israeli Motorsport and racing. It expects to attract the best talents and students, and thus to contribute to the Israeli Smart Transportation efforts.

The participation in the competition was supported by Ben Gurion University, multiple Israeli industrial partners and the Israeli Smart Transportation Research Center. They supported the team with stipends, grants and technical advisory.

BGRacing team started the design and the development of the Autonomous Electrical Race Car that expects to participate in the international FS competitions in summer 2023!
