PolyU E-Formula Racing Team demonstrates creativity and perseverance designing and building their own race car
23 Feb 2021
Despite COVID-19 restrictions, members of the PolyU E-Formula Racing Team, led by 2020 Season team captain Brian Tam, have demonstrated their creativity and perseverance designing and building their own race car for the Formula Student Electric China (FSEC) competition.
To ensure the car-building process could continue amid the pandemic, members outside Hong Kong switched to small-scale assembling at home using components ordered online, posting the finished parts to the PolyU campus or bringing them with them when they later flew back to Hong Kong. Members in Hong Kong took turns doing the fabrication work in small groups because of the ban on large gatherings, often working late into the night. Although the team was not able to take part in the 2020 competition, they successfully organised a virtual rollout ceremony to showcase their car in January 2021.
