Last weekend, 11 team members had their graduation ceremony in the Graf Zeppelin House in Friedrichshafen. After three years of study at the DHBW Ravensburg and an intensive and exciting time in the GFR, all have successfully received their bachelor’s degree. In the past season, our graduates have done a lot and spent many hours and nights in the shop. The highlights of the season were the events in Spain and Italy. In Italy, the team managed to win second place and thus achieve the best result of the GFR history for the electric racing car! We would like to thank our graduates for the great time, and for the successful #GlobalTour2017! In their profiles, our graduates tell you about how they experienced their time with GFR and in the Formula Student.
