Michigan's MRacing team finished 2nd of 91 teams at the Formula Student Germany competition that just concluded at the Hochenheim racetrack.
This is the one of the best international finishes in the team's history. The students finished first in acceleration, second in endurance and third in autocross.
The MRacing team builds its car from the ground up and competes in two major events each year. In May, the team had its best finish in 16 years at the SAE Collegiate Design Series competition at Michigan International Speedway, finishing second overall and setting an acceleration record.
The MRacing blog has the details:
MRacing made the run up to the stage twice at last night's awards ceremony, once for winning the acceleration event and again for placing 2nd in the competition!! Both times we were jumping up and down singing "It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!"
