Arundo RS

The name Arundo derives from the Latin and means “arrow”. The audience decided to take this name at the Rollout in 2009. Arrow fits perfect to our racing car in 2008/2009, because Arcus, the name of our last year car, means “bow”.

The basic structure of Arundo is similar to Arcus, nevertheless several improvements were done. We build a monocoque construction for the first time in 2008/2009 and we decided to take a single piece chassis structure. Furthermore, the seat, steering wheel, upright, and the air box were built out of carbon fiber in 2008/09.
