The University of Pennsylvania Formula SAE team's first and foremost objective is to stimulate interest in the automotive industry throughout the university. Our vision is a cross-disciplinary team which anyone can join regardless of prior automotive experience or knowledge, where members from various backgrounds work together to teach, learn, and innovate in the process of developing a race car. The project will require a large commitment from all who are involved, but the diversity of our group's people and activities will both benefit the individual team members and be reflected in the performance of our team in future competitions.
Students design, fabricate, and compete with small formula-style race cars. Restrictions are placed on the car frame and engine so the students’ knowledge, creativity, and imagination are tested. Four cycle engines up to 610cc can be turbocharged or supercharged to add a new dimension to the challenge of engine design. The vehicles are judged in three different categories: static inspection and engineering design, solo performance trials, and high-performance track endurance.
As our expertise and practical knowledge evolve each year, our ultimate goals and success benchmarks transform themselves as well, requiring additional resources, such as money and materials to use on our car. Check out the 2011-2012 Sponsorship Package for more information!
