About us

Global Formula Racing

Global Formula Racing is an international cooperation between students from Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg-Ravensburg (DHBW), Germany, and the from Oregon State University (OSU), USA. GFR began our unique global venture in 2009. We share physical and intellectual resources by using advanced communication technology to create two highly competitive vehicles.

Design, manufacturing, and testing occur simultaneously at both schools, over nine time zones and 8770 kilometers apart. Our supply chain management is unique in Formula Student, and it adds an extra dimension to the team. The English language, the team language, is key for cross-border communication.


An international team requires on-point communication. We have a dedicated team focused on organizing the environment around the cars.​


All of our cars are regular contenders for wins, having achieved multiple top finishes in previous seasons.​


Based in Corvallis (USA) and Friedrichshafen (Germany), Global Formula Racing reaches around the world.​


Each student on our team specializes in their own tasks. In addition to their regular university schedule, students learn and gain experience with their time on the team.​


We love what we do. Our race cars fuel our motivation to work even harder
