The FR-24 is the car developed by the Firenze Race Team in 2024, designed with an autonomous driving system and a series of advanced innovations. Among these, standout features include a revolutionary aerodynamic package, the adoption of the Beta turbocharged engine, and the introduction of a new steering wheel with an integrated display. However, the most significant innovation is the application of a wrap for the livery, a system that covers the entire car or part of it with a heat-reactive plastic film, ensuring perfect adherence to the bodywork. This project was the result of two and a half years of intense work, with the hope of achieving excellent results in future competitions.
