On 13 October 2020 the launch of the new racing bolide TR20 took place at the Tongji University – and norelem took part! Represented by the managing director of norelem China, we were able to learn about the technological innovations developed by the students: new drive systems, new aerodynamics, an optimised suspension and an update of the electronic engine control.
