The Formula SAE competition is an international event hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers, (SAE). The competition requires the next generation of engineering professionals to design and build an open-wheel, formula-style race car.
The culmination of the project occurs when each team takes their car to the regional event, where teams are pitted against other local and international teams in a series of both static and dynamic events, including design, cost, acceleration, one lap sprints and endurance events on an auto-cross style track.
Worldwide there are 8 competitions held each year, one for south-east Asia, held in Melbourne, Australia as well as events held in Japan, Europe, Brazil, and the United States. The Australasian competition has been running since 2000 and attracts approximately 30 teams. FSAE is an amazing opportunity for university students to obtain first-hand experience in project management, teamwork, critical decision making, budget management, application of complex real engineering techniques, and hands-on manufacturing of a high-performance racing car. The project is managed and run entirely by students, and is not possible without the support of our sponsors.
Our team is divided in two into a Technical and Business Division, in order to facilitate the timeline of our year-long campaign. Within each division, lead by Tech Director Brandon Shaw and Business Director Mark Jay exists systems specific to key areas within the team that are required in order to function. The team falls under the leadership of our Team Principal Ryan Hollis, who manages our campaign and liaises amongst divisions to ensure harmony and success for the team’s valiant efforts. The project itself would not be possible without our close-knit group of hardworking students; willing to sacrifice their time to contribute and extend their skill set and professional competencies.
Track Day 14th Jan 2022 On this day, we were again graced with warm sunny weather for another day of driver training. The goal for today was to put our other two potential drivers through an endurance event and auto cross runs. On arrival to the skid-pan, we promptly got the track set up and … Continue reading Sunny days on track
Track day 10/1/2022 On another hot and sunny day we did some more driver training in the lead up to comp, this training was essential for our driver selection process and to ensure that each of our drivers was confident on every event in case things did not go to plan. The track day was … Continue reading Driver training, driver training and more driver training
