Cairo University Racing team car has only participated in static tests because of some technical problems which faced the team. This did not allow the team to compete on the rest of marks (Dynamic Tests) reaching 1000 degrees. The team won Challenge Award, a Promotional Award, for recollecting the car before the competition. One of the most important reasons of winning Challenge Award is the ability of students to recollect the car in the place of competition, which is an unfamiliar work in most of the similar competitions.
