celerity.team consists of four dedicated and
highly motivated pupils from the
Märkisches Gymnasium Iserlohn who came
together for the work on the project.
Formula 1 in schools
is a multi-disciplinary and international
technology challenge, in which teams of
students design, manufacture and then race
miniature compressed air powered F1 cars.
We aim to use the fascination with the "big" Formula 1 and the world-wide presence to create an exciting and thrilling learning experience for young people to improve their understanding and insight in product development, technology, and science and show them careers in technical jobs.
In regional championships and a German Championship teams are competing with gas-cartridge driven race cars on a 20 m race track. The winning team represents Germany in the World Championships of "F1 in Schools" that take place every year prior to a Formula 1 Grand Prix.
In addition to the design of the car and the driving time, the evaluation also includes a presentation, a portfolio and a pit display.

Our name "celerity.team" means speed. The first letter "c" stands for speed of light in physics. The dot that connects the two words represents our team spirit. We can reach our goals only when we work together as a team.
Our logo displays a racing car in which we use the "c" from our team name as well as the "T" as rear wing. For us the most important aspect in creating our logo was to have a logo with a distinctive design.
To represent our team philosophy we used the concept of a tag cloud. Here the different type sizes show the importance of the tag. Therefore we have chosen words that represent our well-structured team best.
The car is designed according to a technical rule. The vehicle speed as well as the reaction time at the start are included in the overall evaluation.
The portfolio consists of 20 pages in DIN A3 format. The portfolio primarily focuses on project management and the development process. Other further important elements of the portfolio are sponsorship and corporate identity.
During a championship the focus of the pit display will be on the external presentation and car production. An additional interview by the jury is included in the evaluation.
Best car design
On February 4, 2017, we took part at the South-West Qualifying that was well organized by the SIHK. Because the qualifying was a preselection of the teams from South Westphalia, the pit display and the portfolio had to be available only in digital form. 14 teams competed against each other and were evaluated by an independent jury.
Best car design
On 4 March 2017, the national championship took place in Bielefeld. 17 teams fought for the title of the regional champion. At the regional championship, we also had to present the pit display and the printed portfolio for the first time. We have incorporated the knowledge gained from qualifying into our car design as well as in our presentation.
Best car design
15 teams from all over Germany fought for the title of the German champion on May 13, 2017 in the Audiforum Neckarsulm. The "celerity.team" took first place at the German Championships. The racing car was completely redesigned for the German championship. In addition, we have completely redesigned the portfolio - perhaps a reason for the price of the best portfolio.
51 teams from 26 nations, more than ever before, have competed in Kuala Lumpur to take home the World Cup.
After judging the eight races, we were ranked nineteen and were able to make up a few places with other competition elements. We've been nominated for the Best Website Award.
We didn't win a prize, but more experience than we ever thought. We are proud of what we achieved!

The monetary value of the sponsor is determined for the classification. In the case of sponsors who are only financially involved, this sponsored amount is used for the classification. In the case of sponsors who support us in addition to financial resources including services or material values, the value of the service or the asset is used for categorization.
