The project of PR02 car was developed from the bases of the previous one, the PR01.
With this single-seater in 2008, year when the team raced in the Formula SAE Italy, the University of Parma made history, having presented the first italian car of Formula Student with the chassis made entirely of carbon fiber.
The main dimensions of the car are the direct consequence of design choices dictated by the need to obtain a vehicle that had a dynamic behavior suited to the requirements of a competition. The pitch is 1610 mm, the wheel-track, equal to the front as well as the rear, is 1210 mm. From these data shows a pitch/wheel-track ratio typical of Formula SAE cars, cars which must cover tracks with numerous and rapid changes of direction, while still making a dynamic behaviour allowing a good directional control.
