Hanyang University student racing club RACE placed second in the technology idea sector at the 2020 Korean Society of Automotive Engineers Contest that was held for three days from August 7 to 9. RACE participated with an E-Formula vehicle in the Formula category to create technological gaps with other teams by using two independently-controlled BLDE motors and monocoques, which let them get attention with a high-quality design.

In particular, the creative and outstanding monocoque forming technology commanded attention. Engineer Lee Young-sub who participated in constructing the body said, “A carbon monocoque was used in the RH27, which we predicted would allow us to obtain a stronger property compared to the weight of the previous pipe frame,” and that “In fact, as the specimen experiment result, higher rates showed by 1.3 times in buckling, 3.5 times in bending, 9.4 times in energy, and lower rates of 0.75 times in transformation. From this, we could optimize the vehicle by obtaining stronger properties and at the same time minimizing the weight.”

When asked about the reason they were awarded a prize, they said that “as for our team, we were the only university in Korea to create a monocoque with a resin infusion method, which allowed us to maintain the advantages of the monocoque that we've mentioned before but at the same time minimize the cost by decreasing the cost of outsourcing,” and explained that “we believe that the fact that we've created a high completion level monocoque with the least cost led us to receive the award." Furthermore, they explained some difficulties they faced and said that “there were some parts of the thickness aren't even as the nature of the forming procedure and also some difficulties in adding the finishing touches.”Then they shared their aspirations saying that “we would like to make improvements on these parts to build a more perfect vehicle next time.”
 
RACE, which has grown under HAST is planning to produce a high-quality E-Formula(electric racing) based on the all-wheel drive (AWD) in-wheel motor next year and prepare for global contests outside Korea in 2021.
