Welcome to the home of Global Formula Racing! GFR is an international collaboration between the BA Racing Team from the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg-Ravensburg (DHBW-R), Germany, and the Beaver Racing Team from Oregon State University (OSU). This unique global venture promises to build upon the team’s past success and propel development into future seasons.

 

 

  

Global Formula Racing is the first global student collaboration of its kind in the history of both the US-based Formula SAE and EU-based Formula Student programs. The former BA Racing Team from the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg-Ravensburg (DHBW-R), Germany, and the Beaver Racing Team from Oregon State University (OSU) combined forces in 2010 to compete as a single entity. The two universities share physical and intellectual resources through the use of advanced communications technology to create a highly competitive vehicle worthy of international recognition.

Design, manufacturing, and testing occur simultaneously at both schools. The collaboratively developed GFR 2014 design will be used to manufacture a combustion car at the OSU campus in Corvallis, Oregon, USA and a fully electric car at the DHBW-R campus in Friedrichshafen, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The combustion car will compete in USA events, as well as Formula Student events across Europe. GFR's electric car will stay in Europe to participate in Formula Student competitions only.
