Team Sleipnir is the Formula Student team of Reykjavik University. The team was founded in August 2015 by two mechanical engineering students who immediately began recruiting and set the goal to compete at Silverstone 2016. The main design philosophy of the team was to build a simple and durable car to be able to spend as much time as possible testing the car and collecting data to see which aspects of the design need to be improved.
The team is divided into 6 different departments, drivetrain, suspension, body & chassis, engine, electronics and publicity.
Most parts on the car are machined in the university workshop by the team which gives team members invaluable insight into how to optimize the process of design and manufacture components for the car.
