As students interested in motorcycling sector, we saw it as an ideal opportunity for entering this world and to put in exercice all the knowledge and skills we have acquired through this years.
All teams will have the same components (engine, wheels, suspension and brakes), obtaining in this way a need for wit and for introducing new ideas which can be applied not only in competition motorcycles, but in street bikes too.
This Motostudent edition will be the debut year for the Superior Engineering Polytechnic School of Vilanova i la Geltrú (E.P.S.E.V.G), and brings a chance for putting our school into sight, at a national and international level.
Descrizione del progetto. Caratteristiche, punti di forza e peculiarità.
The Motostudent challenge is composed by three different phases. Not only in the technical scope (design, building and performance improvement following the Motostudent restrictions), but also taking into account the economic aspects and the ellaboration of an industrial project. It is proposed to the teams to get sponsored, economically, but also technically and with material supplies. This way all the students are forced to get into contact with a very unknown aspect of the competition world, the need of finding sponsors. Moreover, in the industrial project phase, the students have to be able to build 600 units of the prototype spending a total cost of 4750€ per unit.
Motivazione e a chi si dirige il progetto
All the team members have a great interest for the motorcycling world, and as we were involved in a technical kind of studies, we saw it as a unique chance of getting our vocation and our passion into one.
We are looking for people interested in the technological and scientific world, in the educational too, the social frame and design, who wants to help us reaching our dreams.
Obiettivi della campagna di crowdfunding
Through the crowfounding campaigns we would like to finally build the motorcycle, and to demonstrate that we are capable in front of other schools and colleges, in a national and international level.
The goal at a mid term is to buy the material for manufacturing the chassis and the rest of the components (handlebar, fuel tank, fairing and others).
In a long term, we would like to rent a vehicle for the transport to the racetracks, for doing performance tests and improvements on the engine. As well as addressing the consumible parts, like braking replacements, tires, fuel, etc.
Esperienza previa e team
The EPSEVG RACING TEAM is composed by students from different specialities of industrial engineering (mechanics, electronics and electrics) and industrial design engineering. We come from different studying background, like cycle degrees or baccalaureate.
