Thank you to everyone who made a gift to this project! While this round of weR Gold closed June 30, you may still support students with your gift by visiting the Rensselaer Giving website.
"Rensselaer Motorsport is a team of undergraduate students that designs and manufactures a brand new race car each year. The team competes in Formula SAE, one of the largest intercollegiate design competitions in the world. The backbone of any racing team is its supporters, and Rensselaer Motorsport is no different. Without each and every one of you, we would not be able to compete at the level that we do."
Rensselaer Motorsport gives students a unique opportunity to apply concepts that they learn in the classroom to real world engineering problems. They are tasked with designing and manufacturing parts for each race car, and they must defend their designs to industry professionals at the Formula SAE competition. This prepares our team members for their professional careers and teaches them valuable skills that are not taught in the classroom.
What You're Supporting
This year, Rensselaer Motorsport aims to finish in the top 10 at the Formula SAE competitions amongst teams with much larger budgets than us. Your gift will be used to help propel Rensselaer Motorsport to the top of the Formula SAE rankings. Donations to Rensselaer Motorsport help fund purchases of raw materials for manufacturing, parts, and shop supplies that are necessary for completing our car.
Who We Are
We are working extremely hard this year even with the pandemic continuing. As a team, our funding has gone down significantly due to COVID and as such we are worried that we may not be able to continue building race cars if our budget continues to dwindle. We need help to do research, develop new parts, create new innovative designs, and be the fastest team out there. For more information on who we are, check out our Facebook page or website!
