Formule ETS is an engineering powerhouse from the École de Technologie Supérieure, in Montreal. The team has been designing, manufacturing and racing Formula-style race cars for more than 25 years with one common goal since then :

Victory.

The cars that come out from the ETS' workshop reflect their philosophy and mentality.

The latest car is called the AXFF-16 (AutoCross Formula Feather 2016), the pinnacle of a 3-year development car. A car that weighs in at 333 pounds powered by an in-house designed and machined custom 450cc engine, sitting on 10 inch LC0 Hoosier tires equipped with a full simulated and validated aerodynamic package.

AXFF-16 The Project

The AXFF series is a concept that the ETS team chose in 2014. A lightweight, high-nose car with an aggressive and efficient aerodynamic package powered by a single cylinder, single speed engine.
