AMZ RACING

We are proud to announce our collaboration with the racing team of Academic Motorsports Association of Zurich (AMZ) in Switzerland, which was founded in 2006 by students of ETH Zurich, the city’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) university and one of the top ten universities in the world.

Since it was established, AMZ Racing has produced a prototype every year to compete in Formula Student competitions throughout Europe. Formula Student is an internationally recognised motorsports competition specifically developed for students from universities around the world. In 2010, AMZ, the first Swiss team in Formula Student, moved to the eRacing series, which focuses on electric-powered racing cars.

 

 

How the eiger got its colours

The 2018 AMZ eRacing car, called eiger after the infamous Swiss mountain, was prepared at Axalta’s Training Centre in Pratteln, Switzerland, by the students and painted by Axalta technicians.

The carbon fibre reinforced plastic chassis was first coated with NS2602 Non-Sanding Primer-Surfacer, a non-sanding primer surfacer from Cromax.

It was followed with Axalta’s 2018 Automotive Color of the Year StarLite – a white pearl colour that the students decided they had to use once they saw a swatch – and also a special red pearl effect colour, to match the impressive impact delivered by StarLite.

Finally, the eiger was given its finishing touch with CC6600 Cromax Pro Star Clear, and later the Cromax logo, which the car will sport during the races.

The eiger was unveiled on 14th of May 2018 in Dietikon near Zurich, Switzerland, and will enter various Formula Student races through the season, which runs from July 2018.
