The new generation of engineers who will design the future electric MotoGP motorbikes is testing their skills at MotoStudent now.
Moto Engineering Foundation and TechnoPark MotorLand promote the MotoStudent International Competition, (www.motostudent.com), a challenge between University Student teams among all over the world.
The goal for the students is to apply all their knowledge acquired during their university studies in a real industrial project, designing, developing and manufacturing a racing motorcycle prototype, evaluated and tested on the FIM Motorland Aragón circuit. There are two categories: one reserved for internal combustion engines and one for electric motorcycles.
MotoStudent presents a challenge for students, who must demonstrate their creativity and innovation skills by directly applying their engineering skills against other teams from universities around the world over three semesters.
In the electric motorcycle category, the competition is divided into two parts: MS1 and MS2. In phase MS1 the projects are judged from an industrial point of view, evaluating aspects such as cost, design, innovation, industrialization, engineering design, presentation. In the MS2 phase, the motorcycles are tested to determine their safety and functionality through various static and dynamic events, including technical inspection, brake test, various performance tests, resistance and dynamic behaviour. The MS2 phase concludes with the final event in the MotorLand Aragón circuit, which includes free practice sessions, qualifying and the race.
