Formula Student Bizkaia is constituted by a group of students from the Faculty of Engineering of Bilbao, belonging to the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).

Faculty advisors

Javier Corral

Mikel Díez

Charles Pinto

Asier Zubizarreta

The Faculty Advisor is expected to accompany the team to the competition and will be considered by competition officials to be the official university representative. They also may advise their team on general engineering and engineering project management theory.

 

Team Leader 

The team leader is the person who provides direction, instructions and guidance to the team, for the purpose of achieving a certain goal. He also works with the technical managers and the team sponsors to obtain the required resources to support  team's activities.

Team Leader

 

 Managers

The team needs a number of different managers with various skill sets. Technical managers lead technological development activities. They tend to possess a high degree of expertise in a given technical area, so that they must be able to lead a team developing that code.

Chassis & Aerodynamic group

Jon Oterino

Chassis  Manager

Aerodynamics group is responsible for the design, calculus and manufacture of all aerodynamic parts of the vehicle. They develop the  front and rear wing, including different pieces as the diffuser, undertray the difuser and the sidepods. In adition, they are responsible for the cooling system of the powertrain. One of the main objectives of the group is to improve the performance of the car  achieving an optimun lift/drag ratio. They are continously innovating with the designs, manufacturing techniques and new materials implementation.

Unsprung mass

Unsprung mass group is in charge of vehicle dynamics and the design, manufacture and maintain mechanical assemblies that make up the unsprung mass of the vehicle: corners and suspension. It also handles the steering assembly and braking system that includes parts of corners and the floorboard.

Control and Telemetry group

Control and telemetry group is in charge of low voltage systems of the vehicle. They are responsible for the design and creation of PCBs, the software implemented in them and telemetry. Its function is to gather information from the sensors distributed throughout the car and manage them in the electrical control unit (ECU), with the aim of sending signals to the different parts of the car, from the floorboard through the dashboard to the rear module where the motors and inverters are located.

Managment and communication

Ainhoa Irureta Managment & Communication Manager

Managment and communication group group despite not being related to the design and technical production of the vehicle has an important role in the team. It is responsible for managing communication and the proper operation of the team in terms of workload distribution and organization of time.

Powertrain group

Asier Bergado

Powertrain Manager

Powertrain group is responsible for the high voltage traction system: from the accumulator (batteries system) to the motors including inverters. Its aim is to develop a strong, reliable and powerful tractive system and for this reason is in charge of the design, validation, construction and development of the assembly.

Furthermore, its aim is also to transmit the power generated in the motors to the wheels of the car. This group is in charge of mainshafts, epicyclics, bearings and all supports and anchoring systems of these components to the monocoque

Drivetrain group

Pablo Corcuera

Drivetrain Manager

Drivetrain group is responsible for transmitting the power generated in the motors to the wheels of the car. This group is in charge of mainshafts, epicyclics, bearings and all supports and anchoring systems of these components to the monocoque. The epicyclics are the most innovative part of the group, which are in charge of a changing the transmission ratio through a set of gears.


On the other hand, they are also responsible for the design and manufacture of Accumulator Container, which is the box where car batteries are located. This container is made by composite materials to optimize the structure and reach the greatest possible stiffness without increasing the weight
