PADDOCK PATROL
Accident Avoidance & Rule Summary
Everyone (participants, volunteers, spectators) at Formula Student wants to have an accident-free
event. The Pit Patrol has been established to advise teams on potentially unsafe practices in the
paddock/pit area. The actual Formula Student dynamic events are under the control of the Operations
Coordinator and his designated Clerk of the Course, Chief Marshal and Event Captains and are
operated in a very safety-conscious manner. Some rules and guidelines to remember:
Acceleration Run-off
There will be an Acceleration Event Top 6 Run off once again at the end of the first morning‟s dynamic
events. It will be a great opportunity for all the spectators and teams to see the fastest cars in action
in one go.
2
To keep it fair for all the competitors, all the original acceleration times will stand, and the Top 6 teams
will fight it out for a quicker time. Each team will have one run and they can choose any one of their
nominated drivers. If a team elects not to run, then the 7th placed team in acceleration will be invited
to participate in the run-off, but who wouldn't want to run again on the world famous Silverstone track!
Sprint
The Sprint event will be run with 2 queues such that priority will be given to the first driver. In the
event of adverse weather or other issues we will therefore try to ensure that all teams get one driver
to compete their heat before any second drivers are allowed to start their heat.
Electric / hybrid / fuel cell Instructions
The following instructions must be adhered to when operating vehicles which use high voltages
(>40VDC or 25VAC):
1. Vehicles with High Voltage will have separate pit areas to the ICE vehicles
2. All electric vehicles must have basic checks performed at scrutineering before they are allowed
to be presented in static events
3. If the vehicle has not completed all electrical scrutineering, then the safety responsible person
must be present at all static events to ensure that the vehicle is safe and only demonstrated to
the extent allowed by the scrutineering that has been passed
4. Teams are not allowed to have exposed live High Voltage systems in the pit area.
5. Working on the HV systems of High Voltage vehicles can only be conducted in a designated
area. In this area access will be strictly controlled with a maximum of 4 team members from
any team being allowed to enter and one of these must be the Electrical System Officer. Please
use your red lanyards for access to this area. These lanyards are also required in hot areas,
including dynamics and electric charging bay.
6. The same designated area must also be used for charging the vehicles and the same rules
apply for the number of people that can attend, however there must be one experienced person
with the vehicle or battery pack at all times that the HV system is being charged
7. 16A single phase and 32A 3 phase (5pin) sockets will be available
Fires

Electric vehicle fires:
With electric vehicles, it is possible that a fire can occur and the organisers are aware of a
number of incidents where prototype electric vehicles have caught fire and in some instances
the vehicle has been completely destroyed. The organisers are aware of instances where fire
extinguishers were used to control the fire and these had no effect. The organisers preferred
method of controlling any electrical vehicle fire is to use lots and lots of water which can have
the effect of cooling the cells sufficiently to stop and control thermal runaway. The fire
marshals will be instructed to act in this way unless the team tells them otherwise in which case
the vehicle will be left to burn out.

No open fires in the garages including BBQ grills, oxy-acetylene torches, heaters, cigarettes,
etc. Electric hot plates and MIG or TIG welding (with gas bottles safely secured) are allowed in
your area but you are advised to use the free welding services available to all teams on site.
Engines may ONLY be run in the Engine running area or in the dynamic event areas
Engines may be run in the engine running area provided the car has passed the chassis, safety
and tech inspections and the following conditions are satisfied;
3
1. The car is on an adequate stand
2. The drive wheels are at least 10.2 cm (4 in) off the ground, or the drive wheels have been removed
People must not be underneath the vehicles while the engine is running and a hazard triangle must be
in place to warn pedestrians.
Fire extinguishers must be close by the vehicle and readily accessible at all times. All team members
must be able to use the fire extinguisher. A fire extinguisher must accompany the car, carried
alongside it, wherever it is moved in the paddock. A team member must hold a fire extinguisher ready
whenever the engine is running in the engine running area.
Drivers
Drivers will be issued with a white wristband when they first sign on at the event. All Drivers must
attend the Driver Briefings, after which they will then be issued with a different coloured wristband.
The briefings will be given by the Clerk of the Course and drivers will only be permitted to compete in
that day‟s dynamic activities or use the practice area if the correct wristband is being worn.
All drivers should perform a check of critical fasteners and components on their vehicles to assure
complete control during the driving events. Please be aware that fasteners do come loose, parts do
fatigue, and occasionally someone forgets to torque a nut. It is OK to use the kill switch in the event of
engine or brake malfunction.
Anytime the driver is in the cockpit with the engine running, the following approved safety equipment
must be worn: helmet, driver suit, racing gloves, goggles/face shields, racing shoes, and hair covering,
if necessary.
Grand Prix Racewear is on site for new driver kit if required.
The office is based at Unit 1, Silverstone Technology Park.
Their contact number is; 01327 855585
Driving practice is only to take place in the designated areas and only during the designated times.
Vehicle Movement
D12.1.1 Vehicles may not move under their own power anywhere but on the practice or competition
tracks, or as otherwise directed by the organizers.
D12.1.2 Electric vehicles must be de-activated when being moved around the paddock.
D12.1.3 Off track vehicles must be pushed at a normal walking pace by means of a “Push Bar”, (See
D12.2) and with a driver in the cockpit and with another team member walking beside the car.
Jacking
When supporting cars off the ground use strong, sturdy stands which support the vehicle in a stable
and secure way.
Fuel and Oil
A free supply of fuel will be on site all four days of the competition. The service is courtesy of Shell
who also provides the fuel volume measurement service relevant to the Endurance event. FS cars
which need to be drained at the end of the event prior to transportation must be taken to the Shell
Fuel Station by 16.30 on Sunday 13th July. No open fuel containers are allowed and all fuel containers
4
must be DOT approved. Waste oil, etc., is to be taken to the fuel station for disposal. Once at the
competition site, the Formula Student cars can only be fuelled at the Shell fuel station.
Vehicle Modifications
No unapproved modifications are allowed after your car has been through scrutineering.
Tool Use
Tools are expected to be used safely. Wear safety glasses when cutting, grinding, etc. Wear
appropriate eye protection while welding.
Note: If there is a conflict between this summary of the rules and the complete 2014
Formula SAE/Formula Student rules, the complete rules prevail.

Formula Student endeavours to achieve high levels of safety during the competition and as such wish
to highlight that the use of Remotely Controlled and Un-Manned Aerial Vehicles for photography or
otherwise is prohibited at the event regardless of any safety features, failsafe systems or
insurances that may be present or in force.
First Aid
The Medical Centre will be open 09.00-18.00hrs each day.
Fuel Specification
The fuel specifications and MSDS documents are available to download from the website.
Garage Allocations
All teams with running cars have been allocated their pit, according to the judging schedule. Access to
the garages to build pits will be between 14:00 and 20:00 on Wednesday 9 th July. We encourage you
to have your garage set up and ready by 17:00 as VIP guests will be touring the paddock. The garage
numbers will be published prior to and at the event.
Judging
Class 1 and 2 teams have been allocated times for design, cost & sustainability and business
presentation judging as appropriate. Make sure that you read the judging schedules thoroughly and
that you know where you need to be.
Calculate how long it will take from your garage to the business presentation judging location.
The design and cost judges will visit Class 1 teams in situ in their pits this year. Therefore, your team
will be presenting your garage pit to the judges so we recommend considering the best way to present
your pit, such as bringing display boards (each pit is 6m deep x 4m wide).
All 8 cars in every garage, or bay in the alternative fuels marquee, will be judged at the same time.
Teams will not be able to work on their car whilst their garage judging is in progress as no noise will be
allowed for the judging hour that your team is allocated to.
Please also be advised that there will be a limit on the number of team members present during the
cost and design judging sessions, so some of your team may be asked to leave the garage during this
time.
Class 2 judging will all take place in the Pavilion.
