Thailand SAE Formula Student
TSAE Auto Challenge Student Formula is an international university-level engineering design competition organised by the Thailand Society of Automotive Engineers (TSAE), where a large-scale team works together to develop a small Formula-style race car. The competition provides the participants with the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by applying classroom theories in a practical and challenging competition. The student-built car is rigorously tested and inspected for safety by inspectors from the automotive industry before competing with other schools from around the world in static and dynamic events. The dynamic events test the performance and reliability of the vehicle, while the static events scrutinise the vehicle’s design, engineering, fabrication, costing, and business case
In January 2019, the team made its debut in the competition, ranking 11th and clinching the Best Rookie Team award. In February 2020, the team raised the bar by ranking 7th among the 29 participating teams and winning the Cost Event. In February 2023, the team outperformed its previous achievements and defied the odds by ranking 1st among 12 EV teams and 4th among 31 teams in the overall standings, despite being the team’s first year competing in the EV category. In addition, the team has also managed to achieve 1st place in efficiency, 2nd place in the overall static event, 2nd place in the business presentation event, 3rd place in endurance, 4th place in the cost event, and 4th place in the design event.
