[UPDATE: Top half of monocoque 1 is complete: see end of post]

Yesterday we just completed registration for our sixth event in 2010, Formula Student Austria! As OSU placed 1st and the DHBW-R placed 3rd last year, of course GFR had to return!

GFR is currently registered for:
Formula SAE Michigan May 12th-15th
Formula SAE California June 16th-19th
Formula Student (UK) July 15th-18th
Formula Student Germany August 4th-8th
Formula Student Austria August 11th-14th
Formula SAE Italy September 3rd-6th

For the Americans, this means two months in Europe. For GFR it means 6 chances to take home first place!

But it also means we need we are going to need more financial support. Each event has an entry fee varying from €750 (about $1020) for Formula Student Germany to $2000 for the US events.

If you are interested in donating, please contact:

GFR, Oregon State University: Hillary Shoop

GFR, Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg: Christian Hensel

Thank you all for your continued support!

Some pictures as the build progresses:








Top half of monocoque 1 complete

Part 1 of 4. Best part of mass production: refining the process and getting quicker every time. This will bond with the first lower half produced to form the OSU monocoque. The DHBW monocoque will quickly follow.

    I don’t think I’ve seen a more beautiful monocoque…I vote for no paint this year!

    Yeah, we were thinking how great it would be to half carbon stripes on a solid base color. The great finish is a result of a lot of work on the molds and plug.
