Technology update

Off to the races!

This month RT's Nick Levy is at the world class race track Hockenheimring in Germany, where students from Russia and around the globe have come to put their self-made speed machines to the test. Apart from Formula 1 races, there are also Formula Student races, in which students from technical universities from around the world design and build their own cars for the races. After days and nights of engineering and putting the cars together, the Moscow automobile and road institute team are exhausted, but the next day is the moment of truth - the day of the races, where it's all up to the drivers and where any small mistake the engineers made could be crucial for the team.
