On Wednesday, the Czech Technical University held a press conference as well as a motor show, presenting both the achievemnts of its Formula Student race teams as well as the cars themselves. The university has been part of the worldwide competition for nearly ten years and its race teams are made up of some of its most successful students. I went to the university in order to find out more about the teams and their vehicles.
Many of those who live in the Czech Republic may tell you that they have met or at least seen someone who is involved in medieval reenactment. From musicians to swordsmen, there is a sizeble group of middle-ages enthusiasts in the country. One group however has taken things to the next level. Looking for the real medieval combat experience, a group heralding largely from swordfighters decided to join an increasingly popular sport, which pits fully armoured fighters against each other in competitions resembling medieval tournaments.
