Our reality: 10 years of UniPR Racing Team
The UniPR Racing Team was founded in 2007 by a group of engineering students intending to enter the world of Formula SAE. The first participation in an official event took place at the FSAE Italy the same year on the Fiorano circuit in the Class3 category, ranking on the podium among the best projects. From the following year, with the first participation in a complete event in Class1, began a journey of growth and sacrifices that led a small group of students to become a team and a nationally established reality. The UniPR Racing Team participated in the combustion category at all FSAE Italy stages from 2007 to 2017, at the Formula Student Imeche 2013 on the Silverstone track and in 2017 at the Formula Student Czech event on the Most track.
The results obtained in the various editions together with the experience gained led the team in 2018 to the decision to start a new adventure in the Electric category. In the summer of 2018, the electric prototype project was presented at Varano obtaining the 2nd place in the Design competition.
In the last year the Team created the first electric single-seater, the PSR01, of the University of Parma thanks to the contribution of a Team of 47 people coming from 8 different courses of study. The successes were not long in coming, the team embarked on a path of optimization culminating in the second electric single-seater PSR02 that brought the best results in the history of the UniPr Racing Team. After the sixteenth place at the FS East 2021 event at Hungaroring, prestigious home of the Hungarian Formula 1 GP, on 13 October 2021 the Team has achieved a brilliant fifth place in the overall ranking during the Italian event FSAE Italy in Varano Melegari, beating the feared foreign competition and imposing itself as the second team in Italy.
