141 Schools Registered for SAE Mini Baja Midwest Competition

WARRENDALE, Pa. (June 15, 2005) - University engineering teams from Argentina, Canada, India, Mexico, South Korea and the United States will compete in the SAE Mini Baja Midwest competition June 16-19, 2005, in Troy, Ohio.

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.

Students must function as a team to not only design, build, test, promote and race a vehicle within the limits of the rules, but also to generate financial support for the project - as well as manage educational priorities.

In 1976, the first Mini Baja event was held at the University of South Carolina and Fort Jackson. In just two years, the Society of Automotive Engineers divided the Mini Baja competition into three regional events: East, Midwest and West.
