Development and Technique Initiation with ITD
ITD is a student technology association. Its main vocation is to initiate its members in the design and building of original, sports vehicles: from the concept to the prototype’s first laps.
Several projects are in progress:
- IVR-S: A racing prototype designed for driving pleasure. Driven by a 180hp engine, it weighs 600kg. Built in 2006, today the vehicle is used to discover maintenance and enhancement of a racing prototype.
- ESTACA On The Salt: A 100% electric vehicle built to beat a world speed record at the Bonneville Speedweek in the United States in August 2017. Project members managed to bring a reliable, running prototype to the United States and reached the speed of 247 kph.
- Jema By ESTACA: A 100% student race team to take part in a full season of car racing championships, the TTE (Trophée Tourisme Endurance). A Jema 630 GTR with a motorbike engine weighing 450kg and developing 200bhp is made available by the partner Jema Racing. On the schedule - 6 races during the year on France’s largest tracks; Le Mans, Nogaro, Magny Cours, etc.
The students can use these projects to develop their network and their soft skills in engineering, production, project management (management, planning, industrial relations and communication, etc.)
Since 2016, the association also offers initiations to members and ESTACA students enabling them to widen their technical knowledge: removal of engines, gearboxes, welding, boiler making, etc. Passing on knowledge is one of the association’s priorities.
