Hornet Racing - Formula SAE

Formula SAE is perhaps the highest profile, most intense student Mechanical Engineering design competition in the world. To compete in Formula SAE, students must conceive, design, and manufacture an open-wheeled, formula-style racecar. Restrictions are put on the design of the engine and frame in order to challenge the students knowledge, creativity, and imagination. The cars are built by teams of students over a period of about one year, and are taken to Pontiac, Michigan to compete with 140 other Universities from across the world. The end result is a great experience for young engineers to take part in a meaningful design project, as well as to learn to work as a team.
