This year we were fortunate enough to sponsor the UCONN Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (FSAE). This is a student run organization that designs, manufactures, and races a Formula-Style car competitively all from scratch. These engineering students have the opportunity to get real hands on experience.
This year the car they created completed FSAE Michigan International Speedway and placed 20th our of 120 teams. UCONN FSAE also was named the number one team in New England at this event. The team has also competed for a few years at the Formula North located in Canada.

After nearly a year of design, development, and construction the vehicle has its first test drive:
Finally the vehicle was unveiled to the public:
