WHAT IS VIRTUAL FORMULA?

 

Virtual Formula is a contest built upon the rules and regulations of the Formula SAE and Formula Student competitions.

Register free-of-charge and get access to our state-of-the-art simulation software to find the best set-up for your car!

Optimize the performance of a virtual racecar minimizing the laptime on a given track. Score the best laptime and win the race!

In order to fully support all different vehicle configurations, and line up with the rules and regulations of the Formula Student events, this year's edition will feature once again two different competitions, one reserved for combustion engines and one dedicated to electric drivetrain.
