Begun in 1981, Formula SAE is an educational engineering competition and 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, and cost analysis) and dynamic events (acceleration, skid-pad, autocross, fuel economy, and endurance). Events are held currently in Australia, Brazil, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
