ITU Racing is a university student team which has founded at 2007 under the roof of Mechanical Engineering Faculty of Istanbul Technical University and it aims to attend one of the most famous international student events, called Formula Student.
Formula Student is currently being hosted by 14 countries worldwide and it has over 100 universities which is taking place. The attending teams objective is to design and produce a Formula type race car on one year period. During the events, the prototype cars are tested and inspected by the event responsibles. Following those, teams takes part on static events where they present and explain the design of their car. The teams that is found eligible to pass the technical inspection earns their spot on the track and allowed to participate in dynamic events.
Back in 2010, ITU Racing produced Turkey's first Formula Student car, F-Bee 01 and attended the events in USA/Michigan, waving our flag on the event for the first time. When it was 2017, ITU Racing started to work on project BeElectric Driverless which is the first electric and autonomous Formula Student car of Turkey.
ITU Racing has got members from many different diciplines like mechanical, electrics, electronics and industrial engineering. The projects that are done under the roof of this team provides great oppurtunities for the members to increase their both ability to take responsibilities and to be a team player. In addition, this is the right place for an engineering student for turning its theoretical knowledge into practical knowledge and get experiance of a design process.
The teams main purpose is to represent our country and our university which trains the best engineers of the country on national and international events, to set an example for our younger aspirants and inspire their entrepreneurship.
