The main aim of the CR13 was to improve on the solid base that the CR12 vehicle gave the team. The CR12 was designed with simplicity and reliability in mind, and as already mentioned, without the small errors that were encountered at last year’s competition, the CR12 would have met its design objectives. City Racing has never before been able to complete all of the dynamic events presented at the Formula Student competition, and this was our main aim.
The main issues with the CR12 were centred on the suspension and the chassis. The areas that were therefore focussed on in the design phase of the CR13 where the two areas mentioned above. This has resulted in both performance increases and weight reductions.
