SAE Formula Car

Formula Car

The Formula Car Competition, sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers, is a great hands-on experience for engineering students. Most people are fascinated by formula race cars but never have a chance to experience the real thing. The engineering students here at the University of Evansville, however, have the chance to design, fabricate, and compete with small formula-style racing cars. The SAE competition includes over 140 universities participating, with teams from all over the globe.

In May 2009, the UE SAE Formula Car Team placed an impressive 16th out of 119 teams at the Michigan International Speedway.
