Ecurie Aix - since 1999
In 1999 some students of RWTH Aachen University had the idea to found a Formula Student Team. Already in the following year the plan became reality with Ecurie Aix.
The name of the team is a reference to the motorsport history of the Aachen region. The famous race track Spa-Francorchamps can be reached in less than an hour. It not only stands for the world-famous corner "Eau Rouge", but was also home to the Formula 1 team Ecurie Francorchamps, which was one of the dominant ones in motorsports at that time. The French word for racing team, Ecurie, was thus adopted in the name of the RWTH team and combined with Aix-la Chapelle, the French name for Aachen.
Formula Student is an international, student design competition in which more than 500 teams from all continents of the world already participate. Due to this enormous response, the competition is the largest and most important of its kind.
