Team Spark 2018-2019

The team is divided into 8 groups: Management, Drivetrain, Monocoque, Chassis Systems, Suspension, Aerodynamics, Electric and Operations. Each team member has a responsibility and is an essential part of the project. In the design groups each member oversees the design and production of a single component of the car.

Management

The management of the team consists of five supervisors; the financial manager, the operations manager, the technical manager, the production manager and the project manager.

Suspension

The group is responsible for every part between the chassis and the ground. That is, tires, uprights, a-arms, pushrods, dampers and anti-roll mechanism. The main goal of the suspension is to maximize tire grip at all times.

Aerodynamics

The group designs wings and other aerodynamic devices that use the air around the car to either produce downforce, increasing grip in the tires which allows for greater cornering speeds or utilize it for cooling. The group is also responsible for the cooling system.
