E-TEAM SQUADRA CORSE (FORMULA SAE TEAM) FROM UNIVERSITY OF PISA, ITALY

ABOUT FORMULA SAE

 

Formula SAE started in the USA at the end of Seventies. Today, with up to 280 teams involved, it is the biggest university formula-style race car world championship with 9 venues in North America, Europe, Australia, Brazil and Japan. Formula SAE is not an ordinary car race, but a clever trial of a real work experience for young university students coming not only from engineering but also from the marketing and business schools. Formula SAE has been growing fast in recent years and it now involves a large number of students and companies.

ABOUT THE PERFECT POWER WIDE BAND CONTROLLER

 

Together with our Dealer in Italy – AD Racing, E-Team Squadra Corse is making use of Perfect Power’s WBC-Kit. The WBC controller is being used on an Aprilia 550 RXV engine and a Walbro ECU (Engine Control Unit) on the Formula SAE racing care of Università di Pisa.

 

 

The intake system and the exhaust system have been completely modified to adapt Formula SAE rules. The engine is now being tested at the test bench in order to optimize torque, power and consumption. The Lambda sensor and the Perfect Power WBC Controller are necessary to check mass fuel/air ratios and to make the best ECU map.
