Team leader Byeon, Ji-soosaid:“Our team members stuck to this to prepare for the competition during summer vacation sleeping only 4 hours a day.

I am really happy and proud of them as a professor.”
The Kookmin Racing team was 10th in world ranking (1st place in Asia) at the World FSAE, beating out universities in the world with great car power such as the United States, Germany, and Japan. 
FSAE has been sponsored by the Korea Automobile Manufacturers Association and the Korean Society of Automotive Engineers since 2007. It is a kind of dream competition to students who are majoring in car engineering in that it provides students an opportunity to make and design the car themselves, and also helps to cultivate people of talent in car engineering through racing sports. Kookmin University is scheduled to hold an event inviting poor children in the neighborhood for a car test drive in a Kookmin Racking car and an unmanned automobile made by the Unmanned Automobile Robot Research Center.
