Aiming to build innovative engineering solutions for 4x4 vehicles
We are 6 secondary school students who are keen on engineering, programming and designing.
We are completely different and yet work together towards the same goal. We think in one spirit and co-operate
without expressly intending to.
We are Columba Racing Team from Gymnázium, Poštová 9, Košice, Slovakia.
Enjoy our performance based on Passion & Style & Efficiency!
Our goal is not just to build same old cars but to improve, to create and to invent. Averege results are
unacceptable and the better replaces the worse under any circumstances. With these principles we are willing to
produce much better models of cars with higher social impact, eco-friendliness, ease of use and general
sustainbility. The belief, that we can go beyond expectaions and capabilities of ordinary students pushes us
forward any moment since the very first beginning of Columba Racing. Enjoy our three simple rules: Passion,
We actively take part in various competitions, mainly in the field of informatics and science.
We decided to continue a tradition of the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge in our school under
the guidance of our teacher Monika Molokáčová and our mentor Juraj Mičko who took part in the World Finals
Team Manager, Software Engineer
Unlike ordinary people, Juraj has no problem with communication to machines and codes. His analytical
thinking allows him to solve complex problems of our car and implement it into its code. Juraj is not only
great coder but fantastic organizer. Thanks to his dutinfulness and reliability, we have never ever doubt,
that he is the best member among us to be the team manager.
Martin is one of a few people, whose precisness reaches a level of excellence. He engineered our custom
board and took part in engineering our code too. His engineering and mechanical skills assure us every day,
that the electronics of our car will work perfectly on any track.
Karol loves maths and physics. His great capabilities in these subjects and spatial imagination allows him
to see every possible mechanical problem, that our car can meet at track and eliminate it as soon as
possible. Thanks to Karol, our car has the rigid functional chassis.
Behind every succes of any team stands precise planning and documentation. Thanks to Oliver’s detailed
records, we have highly developed budget and Bill of materials. Oliver’s experience with 3D design were
also essential to allow us designing the chassis and the body shell.
Manufacturing Engineer, Health and Safety Officer
Richard is embodiment of responsibility. He not only supervises the manufacturing process, but also is
enthusiastic about 3D printing and technology. With Richard’s approach to data we can be sure that our data
are always save and integrity of our team won’t be threatened.
How our team would look without a gripping design which could tell everybody our story in the most
interesting way? Peter is responsible for the look of our team and its marketing, thanks to which we can
effectively present our work. Not only we are proffessionals, but thanks to our design we also looks like
