Who we are


Who we are


The racing team “quartodilitro” of the University of Padua was born in dicember 2014. The name quartodilitro, which means quarter of liter, was chosen because the Honda petrol engine equipped with the Motostudent kit is a 250cc engine and also because it is the typical way our people refer to a unit of wine served in the traditional “Osteria” (pub).

The bucranium coloured in pompeian red is the team’s logo, it is the symbol of “hospitium bovis” the first building of the university of Padua.

Nowadays it is the icon of the Athletic Department of the University.

The team is composed of about twenty students from different industrial engineering formative programs; the faculty advisor is the professor Vittore Cossalter, who will guide us to reach our goal: building a winning prototype of a racing motorbike and carrying on the excellent tradition of the University of Padua in the automotive field.

During many years of work and research by the MDRG (Motorcycle Dynamics Research Group) several prototypes have been developed, design and built as part of different thesis and PhD programs, among many these can be considered the most relevant:

  • A three-wheeled vehicle with internal combustion engine for urban mobility,
  • A three-wheeled vehicle with an electric engine that won the 2008 “Formula Electric and Hybrid Italy”,
  • VICTORIA: a motorcycle with a 1000cc, air cooled engine, inspired on the ones that compete in the Super Twin Championship, that have been tested on the Circuit of Monza by one of the most talented tester of the magazine “Motociclismo”
  • the algorithm, heart of the innovative D-Air Dainese tecnology, able to predict an imminent fall and therefore able to prevent serious injury from a severe accident

In December 2014, a group of enthusiastic students founded a new racing team named “Quartodilitro” with the intent of developing and building a new, innovative motorbike and keep this great streak of great achievements alive.

In the field of cycling the University of Padua boasts an illustrious past. Already in 1893 Prof. Enrico Bernardi applied to a normal bicycle a small engine, half- horse of power, mounted on the back of a cart. It can be considered the inventor of the first Italian moped. From 1895 to 1898 he patented various devices related to engines, focusing on cooling and transmission systems.

In 1986, collecting the spiritual heritage of the innovative prof. Bernardi, in Padua was established a research group willing to study and research the dynamics of two-wheeled vehicles.

MOSTUDENT

The next generation of engineers will have a challenging competition

Moto Engineering Foundation & TechnoPark MotorLand promote the MotoStudent Competition, a challenge between University Student teams among all over the world.
The goal is to design, manufacture and evaluate a racing motorbike prototype, which is then put to the test and final evaluation at the Motorland Aragón Circuit. There are two categories:
- Petrol, with a 250 cc 4 stroke engine
- Full electric.
The competition itself represents a challenge to the students. They will have to prove their creativity and innovation skills to directly apply their engineering abilities against other teams from universities all over the world during a period of three semesters/terms.

Competition Objectives

The teams are asked to play the role of a motorbike firm, so that they will have to design, manufacture and evaluate a racing motorbike prototype for the non-professional, weekend and competition market. The teams will attempt to sell the motorbikes to the “general public”, as if they were a factory or motorbike firm under the role of any industrial project. Therefore the challenge is not only an engineering based project if not a business model as well.

Aspects as acceleration, braking, handling and durability will be evaluated during the MotoStudent event at MotorLand Aragón Circuit. Additional design factors to be considered include: manufacturability, economic aspects, ergonomics, aesthetics, maintainability, innovation of the design and reliability.

  • The prototypes will be submitted to bench tests, they should comply with the minimum braking requirements, chassis resistance, etc.
  •   A final test will be performed in order to evaluate the driving qualities of the prototype in the main track. For the final evaluation the motorbikes will develop an “engineering race” within the FIM and RFME Racing Regulations in the MotorLand Aragón Circuit.

Each project will be assessed against other competing projects to determine the best overall motorbike.
