FSAE-A Addendum 2021


FSAE-A Rules Addendum v.03 June 15 2021 (PDF)

This Addendum defines Revisions and Clarifications versus the International 2021 Formula SAE-I Rules for the December 2021 Formula SAE-A competition. Except where otherwise noted, this Addendum applies to both Internal Combustion Engine Powered Vehicles and Electric Vehicles. Teams should particularly note the local requirements relating to On-site Registration, Technical Inspection and Driver Requirements in the Applicable sections of this Addendum. Note: Wherever it is not clear as to application of the rules to a proposed vehicle design, or a radically new concept is proposed for a vehicle, the team should submit the concept to the Rules Committee in advance and not rely only on the team interpretation of the rules, as they may not have been drafted with this proposed new concept in mind. Any updates which are made from the prior year 2020 Addendum for the planned physical event prior to the change to a Static Only) On-Line Event, are highlighted in blue text. Please read all the rules carefully.

**While continuing to enable use of the Excel spreadsheets, FSAE-A are negotiating with the USA and the UK on potential ability to access one of their latest tools for Cost report compilation in future years. If we are able to do this, it will provide a better system for teams and officials. Therefore we cannot advise at this stage what will be the system in future years but will keep teams advised. It is probably only a 50% probability this will be achieved for 2021
