UC Riverside: Formula Society of Automotive Engineers
Formula SAE (FSAE) is an international competition for students groups who design, manufacture, and race a formula-style car. The entrants navigate through various events: explaining and defending their design decisions and manufacturing processes, and testing their drivers’ abilities. UC Riverside’s Formula SAE Team is one of FSAE’s up and coming contenders. As just a first year team in June 2015, we were able to not only build a working vehicle, but pass full technical inspection and compete with top caliper universities at the Lincoln, NE competition. We are planning to compete again in June 2017 where we will be racing 2 new cars, one in the internal combustion category as well as an all electric vehicle. Our electric vehicle will be unique in its class with its 4 custom electric motors it will tear up the track. The cost of building one car is over $30k and we are looking for donations or sponsorships to fund our project. UCR FSAE is a 501c(3) so all donations are tax deductible.
