  • During the charging procedure and at least one hour after it, the Accumulator temperature has to be continuously monitored by the team ESO (E2 or E3) and it can´t be left alone
  • If the Accumulator’s abnormal behavior is observed, team members should immediately inform Officials in the Charging Area / Accumulator scrutineering
  • Accumulator in the non-regular state will be placed into the dedicated quarantine area, where only one team ESO member (E2 or E3) can stay and continuously monitor the accumulator state
  • If the team fails the rain-test procedure, the complete car should be placed in the quarantine area for, at least, one hour with continuous accumulator monitoring by the ESO (E2 or E3) team member
  • At least two hours after successfully passing the rain test, the team is not allowed to charge the accumulator
  • For additional questions or in case of emergency, a dedicated Charging area marshal (wearing a visible Offical vest) will be available in the accumulator technical inspection area (second half of the charging tent)
Running Engines or Motors

Rules addendum

FSCZ Rules 2024

The Formula Student Czech Republic (FSCZ) competition will comply with the FSG Rules 2024. Changes and additions specific to FSCZ are located within this document and supersede the respective sections of the published FSG Rules 2024 document.

The Formula Student Czech Republic Handbook 2024 is to be considered part of the rules. In case of any contradiction between this document and FSG Rules 2024, here mentioned rules are to be considered valid.

Shared documents with other European FS events

ASF, ESF, SES, SESA & SE3D and IAD must be submitted through the FSG website. Teams who will participate at FS Czech, but not FSG, also need to register their team on the FSG website. Registration for the end of the FSG waiting list is sufficient and no payment to FSG is required.

For DSS documents use the FSG form and export PDF, which is later uploaded to the

The CRD must include the BOM (including DBOM and CBOM), the Cost Explanation File and the Supporting Material. To create BOM documents use the FSG tool and export the result to the PDF, which uploads to the

Autonomous Design Report (ADR)

The ADR should contain a description of the autonomous system design used by the team.

Any information to scope, explain, or highlight design features, concepts, methods or objectives to express the value and performance of the autonomous system to the judges shall be included at the team’s discretion.

The ADR must not exceed five pages of content (text, which may include pictures and graphs).

FSCZ procedures and scoring

The event will be run with three classes – CV (including CV Hybrid), EV, and a separate Optional DV Cup. Static and dynamic (except Optional DV Cup) events will run together but scored separately. Vehicles that are built according to the FS CV Hybrid rules will be scored together with non-hybrid combustion vehicles.

No autonomous system is required for CV and EV categories – Autonomous System components may be removed from the car or left in the car at the team‘s discretion. However, each team shall make this decision before passing technical inspections. Any changes afterward will require repeating technical inspections.

In case the team is participating in the Optional DV Cup autonomous system components have to stay on the car at all times to avoid repeating technical inspection.
