Formula SAE is an intercollegiate competition where the top 120 engineering schools in the country gather in Michigan to race a formula style car. These cars are completely funded, designed, built and raced by the student teams. Lehigh has been a competitor since 1993, longer than many members have been alive. This fits in with Lehigh’s long automotive history and success, and we are excited to continue this tradition.
However, this project comes at a cost. With the cost of materials and services expecting to eclipse $20,000 we need outside help. Below are our donation goals, and what the money will be spent on.
Goal 1: $2,500
Cost of registering a team for FSAE Michigan
Goal 2: $5,000
Engine dyno and tuning
Goal 3: $7,500
Raw Carbon Fiber
Goal 4: $10,000
Drivetrain components (axles, differential...)
Goal 5: $15,000
Goal 6: $20,000
Outside Labor costs
Travel costs for competition
Whenever the goal is reached, we will continue to bump up the limit to encourage continued donor involvement and support.
