The concept of Formula SAE
Formula SAE – Students of Automotive Industry - is an international engineering design competition where teams representing several universities are challenged to design, fabricate, develop and compete with a formula type race car.
The prototype must be rule complaint and is judged in two type of events: Dynamic (Skid pad, autocross, acceleration, and endurance) and static events (Business plan presentation, cost and manufacturing, and engineering design).
The competition is split into 3 classes: Internal combustion engine, electric, and finally driverless.
Formula SAE encompasses all aspects of a business including research, design, manufacturing, testing, developing, marketing, management, and fund raising. Therefore, to ensure the success of the project, the team must consist of members from different disciplines working together in harmony.
