Design the Car, Build the Car, Test the Car and Compete in the Car: 2010 Baja SAE Carolina

WARRENDALE, Pa., Feb. 26, 2010 - Build an off-road Baja car from scratch; design it so it can go through mud and up steep hills; and do it within a budget.

That is the challenge facing the nearly 100 collegiate engineering teams from across the United States, Canada, Mexico and Brazil, that will compete in the 2010 Baja SAE Carolina, which will be held at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) campus in Greenville, S.C., April 8 -11, 2010.

This unique SAE International engineering competition provides real-world, hands-on learning for students. Competitors design and build an off-road vehicle that can survive the punishment of rough terrain. All vehicles are powered by a 10-horsepower Intek Model 20 engine donated by Briggs & Stratton Corporation.

Opportunity best defines this event, not only for the participating students, but also in a very big way for the individuals and businesses who provide support in the way of donations, sponsorships and materials.

Employers who may be looking for future engineers will have the opportunity to meet highly motivated engineering students from the top engineering programs in the nation and abroad.

Businesses also have a chance to display their company and products.

SAE International has many types of sponsorship opportunities that can be tailored to fit the needs of an organization. Further information can be found at the Baja SAE Carolina website, www.bajasaecarolina.com.
