From The State Press:

Building a race car from the ground up may seem impossible, especially for the average college student, but for members of ASU’s Formula Society of Automotive Engineers constructing cars is an annual endeavor.

The ASU Formula SAE team is gearing up for an automotive competition next June, spending their Saturdays welding, fabricating and printing 3D parts for their race car. Although the team participated in the competition in previous years, this year the team is focused on learning and improving.

Steven Trimble, mechanical and aerospace engineering practicing professor, is an adviser for the team and said the primary focus of the Formula SAE competition is to give engineering students hands-on experience in designing and building a vehicle. 

“It’s a very demanding competition,” Trimble said.

The competition in Lincoln, Nebraska will consist of three days of challenges. On the first day, the team will present a business plan to judges marketing the car, where it will also be technically inspected and reviewed based on its construction and design.
