Lightweight automotive upright bracket designed by Lions Racing Team e.V.

This suspension upright for a Formula Student racecar was designed by Jan-Rickmer Luth, Jannes Briese, and the Lions Racing Team e.V., who won the 2021 nTopEd Challenge with this part. The team used topology optimization to maximize the strength of this part while keeping mass minimal. nTop’s algorithms allowed the team to reduce the weight of the upright by about 40% compared to its cast predecessor.
