Axalta Supports Chinese Student Racing Team to Compete in the Formula SAE 2017

The Shanghai Tongji University’s student car racing team, TJU, will participate in Formula SAE 2017, an auto design competition organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International. The first stop of the tour takes place in Germany this month. The race car, dubbed TR17, was designed and developed independently by students from the College of Automotive Studies of Tongji University. TR17 is painted with Axalta’s Spies-Hecker® waterborne coating. Support from Axalta has enabled the TJU racing team to witness the birth of an innovative, camouflage car body design with red, black, and white patterns. The coating has decreased the car’s body weight when compared to the team’s previous race car, providing an advantage over the competition.
