Formula Student

Holger Spiess lectures at the ‘TU Berlin’

The know-how of Spiess-Motorenbau GmbH is in great demand not only at the racetrack alone. Holger Spiess, the company’s CEO, for instance, has been giving lectures at the Technical University (TU) Berlin for many years, now. “Working with the young technicians is fun,” reveals Holger Spiess. “And it often pays off. Several TU Berlin students later opted for joining Spiess-Motorenbau GmbH.” The latest example: A former head of the TU Berlin’s Formula Student project works today at the Spiess engine-test rigs in Ditzingen as application engineer.

On 18th May, the TU Berlin syllabus once again featured the topic ‘Technology and Management in Motor Racing’. Volker Strycek, formerly Opel Motorsport Director and today the AvD Sports President, gave a lecture about the planning tasks in the run-up to an endurance race – while Bosch Engineering explained the mode of operation of an anti-lock brake system in motor racing. Holger Spiess’ topic: ‘The basics of the racing-engine design’. In his two-and-a-half-hour lecture he used the example of the design of DTM engines to teach the students a lot. The one-day seminar was attended by more than 30 students.

Construction Design of completely new engines or the enhancement of existing power units –inventive spirit, courage, extensive team work and our huge wealth of represent the basis for innovative results.
Manufacturing Precision components or the refinement of existing components, single copy or small-batch series, solid material or cast material – a diversified service range thanks to an ambitious mix of know-how and new developments.
Quality management Out there on the racetrack, the smallest mistake can be crucial. Therefore, special emphasis is placed to a gapless and absolutely precise quality control. No part will be installed without having been subjected to an extremely strict examination.
Engine manufacturing The engines are individual custom products and are assembled in the heart of the company by a highly qualified team. Here, quality instead of quantity represents the yardstick.
Test bench Here, the process represented by development and design, production and manufacturing comes full circle. On the test rigs, the components or the entire project have to definitively demonstrate if they meet the highest standards.
