Revolve NTNU is Norwegian University of Science and Technology's team for Europe's Formula Student motorsport competition. Established in 2010 and with their first car completed in 2012, when they were the first Norwegian team to participate at the Formula Student competition, the team has expanded to 80 students from different engineering disciplines at the university. They built Norway's first electric race car and Scandinavia's first four-wheel-drive electric race car.

History

2010–2012

The team was established in 2010, when it had eleven members, and first competed with a car named KA Borealis R at the 2012 Formula Student Competition, held at the British Silverstone formula racing track.[1][2][3][4] They were the first Norwegian team to enter,[5] and won the newcomers' prize.[6]

2014

For 2014 Revolve NTNU built Norway's first electric race car,[7][8] KOG Arctos R.[9] which placed 8th in the electric race car division.[10]

2015

In fall 2015 the race car building program became an official subject of study at the university;[14] as of October 2016 it was the basis of eleven master's theses in progress,[15] as of July 2017, seven.[16]

Kongsberg Automotive ASA was the project's first major sponsor.[7] Revolve NTNU also has a partnership with Petter Solberg and Petter Solberg Engineering since November 2011.[22][23][24][25] Bertel O. Steen became a major sponsor in 2017.[26] Other sponsors include Arrow[27] and Midt-Norge Autolakk.[28]
