Our Baja team came in 37th at the baja SAE Carolina Competition

April 5, 2010

Our Baja Team – a group of mechanical engineering majors who design, build, and maintain a small, rugged-terrain race car - came in 37th at the Baja SAE Carolina Competition in April 2010. The competition, held in Greenville, South Carolina, hosted more than 100 teams from all over the world. In addition to racing their cars, the teams were judged on the cost of production, and a variety of other characteristics like acceleration, maneuverability, traction, and suspension. Their 37th place finish was the best result the team has achieved in the competition in a while, but the team’s advisor, Pat Lewis (also a ME grad), thinks that they are primed to do even better at the Baja SAE Rochester Competition in a couple of months at RIT.
