The team consists of students Jiří Janota, Adam Jirkovský, Rose Lu, Royce Lu, and Pierre Casimiro (from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Erasmus exchange students) supervised by David Zahrádka from the Intelligent and mobile robotics group, CIIRC.

There were 43 teams registered for the virtual competition. Only 17 teams were able to qualify for the main race. The qualification consists of time trial races and the CTU team achieved the sixth-best lap time.

The main race is organized as an elimination head-to-head race, where two teams are racing two laps. The car that hits the finish line first (twice from three races) advanced to the next round. The CTU team beat the teams of the University of Central Florida and IIT Kahragpur in the head-to-head races. Unfortunately, the CTU formula lost to Gyeongsang National University and University Korea and ends in 4th place.
