    What is FSAE?

    Formula SAE is a student design competition organized by SAE International (formerly Society of Automotive Engineers). The first competition was started back in 1978 and was originally called the Mini Indy.The concept behind Formula SAE is that a fictional manufacturing company has contracted a design team to develop a small Formula-style race car.

    The prototype race car is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item. The target marketing group for the race car is the non-professional weekend autocross racer. Each student team designs, builds and tests a prototype based on a series of rules whose purpose is both to ensure onsite event operations and promote clever problem solving.

    SEE: Rules & Important Documents and Drexel FSAE

    Drexel Formula SAE is a team comprised of undergraduate students that designs and builds a race car from the ground up every year for international, intercollegiate competition.
    FSAE Facebook Group: Drexel Formula SAE Information Resources and Tools

    This group will serve to enhance awareness of various information resources available to participating Drexel students so that they can efficiently use them in their design of the prototype race car for this competition. You can post any material or books you need on the wall of this group. My Facebook ID is bhattjj@drexel.edu
