Polistmodel cooperates with F.S.Bizkaia in manufacturing their monocoque
Polistmodel has signed a cooperation agreement with Formula Student Bizkaia for the manufacturing of the chassis of FSB2015 competition monocoque.
This year 2015, we will be part of F.S.Bizkaia team, developing FS2015 competition monocoque. In this joint project between Polistmodel and Formula Student Bizkaia, engineering students of UPV Basque University will count on our technology and attention for the manufacturing of one of the major parts of FS2015 formula car.
This year, as a novelty and also in an attempt to make the monocoque even lighter, the chassis will be made of carbon fibre, a material which offers a higher stiffness-weight relationship than steel, thus allowing to achieve a chassis with 30% lower weight than a tubular one and nearly 3 times stiff to torsion.
