140 Schools Registered to Compete at 2005 Formula SAE Competition

Warrendale, PA, May 16, 2005 - University engineering teams from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Venezuela and the United States will compete in the 2005 Formula SAE competition May 18-22 at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Mich.

Begun in 1981, Formula SAE is one of the featured events in the Collegiate Design Series. In Formula SAE, student members conceive, design, fabricate and compete with small formula-style race cars; points are awarded for static events (presentation, design, cost analysis) and dynamic events (acceleration, skid-pad, autocross, fuel economy, endurance). Events are held currently in Australia, Brazil, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

FSAE is not only the largest student engineering design competition, but also is the world's largest single-class motorsports event. This year 140 teams are registered (the maximum allowed), with entry slots selling out in just 73 minutes. Registered teams include:
