The team

Formed exclusively by university students with talent and enthusiasm for engineering and motorsport.


Team Leader

Sol Vernet Casado


Álvaro Pay Lozano

The aerodynamics department is responsible for the design and manufacture of the complete aerodynamic package of the car, consisting of a front wing, side wings, diffuser and rear wing.

The aerodynamic design is carried out using CFD simulations to achieve the department’s main objectives: maximising downforce to improve cornering and reducing drag for better acceleration and speed.

Finally, the aerodynamics department is responsible for the design of the vehicle’s cooling system. Fans are strategically placed to accelerate airflow and increase downforce.

Chassis & Ergonomics

Marta López Garrido

Within the frame department, they are in charge of the design and manufacture of the monocoque chassis of our single-seaters, composed of carbon fibre and aluminium honeycomb in a sandwich structure.

To ensure the rigidity of the monocoque chassis, they carry out different structural simulations as well as mechanical tests of the different laminates that make up the vehicle in order to obtain a correlation with the final laminates.

The chassis department is also in charge of the ergonomics of the driver and vehicle, designing the natural fibre seat, steering wheel and pedals to allow maximum comfort for the driver.

Aleix Carrasco Prat

The dynamics department is in charge of the driver-vehicle interaction, developing a tyre model to not only push it to the limit in both stationary and transient conditions, but also to estimate the vehicle forces and correlate the track data.

With the help of this model, they design and manufacture the vehicle’s suspension, consisting of: anti-roll bars, springs and shock absorbers. These are exclusively designed to extract the maximum potential from the tyre in each cornering phase, taking into account the vehicle’s characteristics and Torque Vectoring.

Finally, they are in charge of vehicle tuning before each dynamic test, analysing the data collected to allow the vehicle, and the driver, to maximise its performance on the track.

Powertrain & Electronics

Roger Ubia Fatjó

The powertrain department is responsible for the powertrain, which provides traction to the single-seater thanks to the four-wheel drive concept, i.e. an independently controlled engine at each wheel. This concept, together with Torque Vectoring, allows our cars to reach higher cornering speeds.

The department is also responsible for the design and manufacture of the high-voltage battery pack, which stores all the electrical energy needed to propel the vehicle. To optimise the design, pots are made from different types of cells used in the global electric automotive industry.

Finally, in order to be able to supply the high power density motors used in our vehicles, the study of current inverters capable of converting the direct current of the battery pack into three-phase alternating current is carried out.

The electronics department is responsible for designing 100% of the electronics of our single-seaters.

The vehicle’s electronics comprise the Balance Management System or BMS, which balances the voltage of all the cells to optimise the performance of the battery pack, the lifeline safety systems, the reading of all the car’s sensors and the communication between the control unit and every part of the car via CAN.

The department also designs and manufactures all the wiring for both the low-voltage power supplies and the communication cables to the control unit.

Another task is the design of Torque Vectoring. This is a high-performance algorithm that distributes torque appropriately to each wheel, allowing the vehicle to reach higher cornering speeds.

The Driverless department is responsible for the transformation of the ecoRD into a 100% autonomous car and is divided into three sub-departments.

From the data provided by the vision sensor, LiDAR and cameras, the perception sub-department is responsible for developing the codes, including a neural network, to obtain a view of the vehicle’s environment.

From estimation, this view of the environment is used to create the cone map in real time. SLAM is the algorithm in charge of this function. In addition, the development of a state estimator is crucial to know the vehicle parameters and to allow a better estimation and control of the vehicle.

Finally, the control sub-department makes use of the information received from estimation and perception to generate the optimal wheel torque and steering angle setpoints.

Isaac Puig Ondoño

The marketing department’s main task is to obtain the necessary resources to be able to carry out the design and manufacture of each of the team’s single-seaters. On the other hand, it is in charge of the team’s public image and its repercussion.

Different tasks are carried out, such as managing the social networks, which are used to attract the attention of different audiences: both for new members for the coming seasons and for new companies that want to collaborate with the team. In addition to the networks, contact is made with different fairs and technological events to expose the project to a more specific public.

Moreover, in this department we can also find the members in charge of grants, graphic design and maintenance of the team’s website, as well as the Business Plan during the competitions.


Marc Mirambell Giralt

The members of the logistics department are responsible for the organisation of the equipment and the management of the working spaces, i.e. the workshop or spaces at the university to ensure that they are in optimal working conditions.

In addition, the department is responsible for all movements of people and objects throughout the season, be it to attend trade fairs or events or for travel to competitions.

A good example of the department’s work can be during the competition season, where everything from transport to the circuits, to keeping the documentation of the members up to date, managing all the material to be able to compete and organising the work of all the team members for proper coordination must be taken into account.


Eugeni Just Guerrero

The accounting department is in charge of the team’s bookkeeping, either by keeping an up-to-date account of the data or by foreseeing all those moments of the season when one amount of resources or another will be needed. They are also in charge of the association’s accounting and related legal issues.

An example of the work done in this department is the control of the fluctuations of the economic resources and balancing everything in order to maintain them throughout the season. They are also in charge of preparing the Cost Event during competitions.

Old members

The former members are the ones who have helped to bring the project to its current level and who have paved the way for us to continue to progress as a collective. In addition, most of them still have a close relationship with the team and every day they provide support and ideas to the current members. These are all the members who have made it possible for UPC ecoRacing to continue year after year.
