Formula SAE and Formula SAE Electric Begin June 18 in Lincoln, Neb.

WARRENDALE, Pa., June 17, 2014 -

SAE International’s Formula SAE® Lincoln and Formula SAE Electric® competitions begin Wed., June 18 and run through Sat., June 21 at the Lincoln Airpark in Lincoln, Neb.


The Formula SAE® Series competitions challenge teams of university undergraduate and

graduate students to conceive, design, fabricate and compete with small, formula style, competition vehicle. To give teams the maximum design flexibility and the freedom to express their creativity and imaginations there are very few restrictions on the overall vehicle design. Teams typically spend eight to twelve months designing, building, testing and preparing their vehicles before a competition. The competitions themselves give teams the chance to demonstrate and prove both their creation and their engineering skills in comparison to teams from other universities around the world. Registered for this event are 80 Internal Combustion Teams and 20 Electric Teams from colleges and universities. The end result is a great experience for young engineers in a meaningful engineering project as well as the opportunity of working in a dedicated team effort.
