      Israelis Develop Super Fast Race Car


      Israeli developers have created a super fast race car and will compete in the upcoming Formula SAE student competition in Italy.
       
      Students from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem and Ben-Gurion University in the Negev have developed a "highly-specialized, powerful race car".
       
      “The project presented the unique opportunity to bring together developers from these two complimentary disciplines, which allowed them to conduct a mutually-enriching and real development process, with a front-line view of creating a real automotive product,” stated Dori Regev, a senior lecturer from Bezalel.
       
      On Thursday Sept 6th, a demonstration of the car will take place at the  Kohav Yair Race Track before being shipped off to Italy for the competition.
