Metropolia Motorsport Has Finished Their First Year In Formula Student Electric

Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Science – Formula Student –team Metropolia Motorsport has competed their first year with a pure electric formula. HPF013E was a two year project towards a new wave of development within the team. The work started from scratch and ended to a concept with a unique completely in house designed powertrain with independent drive to both rear wheels.

In the Get Personal competition, participants were asked a motorsport-related question before being taken behind the scenes at the famous McLaren Technology Centre through a personalized video. The competition had over 12,000 entrants from right across Europe and the Middle East, with almost 1,200 of those coming from Finland.

The fantastic prize will see Jukka and a friend fly to Austin Texas to attend the 2013 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix held on 15-17 of November.

“Winning the competition feels amazing! Now I get to experience something that I could only have dreamed of. It will be fascinating to see how the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team operates during a race weekend,” comments Jukka.

“My father’s birthday is close to the race so I wanted to take him with me. He is a big Grand Prix racing fan and it was through him that I got interested in motorsports to begin with,” he continues.

During his time in the US, Jukka will get to meet the Mobil 1 and Vodafone McLaren Mercedes teams and explore the pit lane. He will also have the unique opportunity to get behind-the-scenes and observe the Mobil 1 technicians as they analyze the oil and fuel used on track.


First season in FS electric was definitely an educating one. The whole team gained a lot of experience to up the ante for next year. After the competitions HPF013E will serve as a great learning and development platform for the current and new team members. Last but not least the team would like to thank you all of our partners for making this project come thru! Next year, new round aiming even higher!
