About OkState Racing
Monday, April 30 2012
Oklahoma State University's Formula SAE Racing team has built a new, high-performance race car from the ground up, every year for many years. We take them to international competitions all over the United States, competing against other collegiate teams from all over the world.
The concept behind Formula SAE is that a manufacturing company has asked your team to develop a quarter-scale Formula-style race car. The prototype car is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item, marketed towards non-professional weekend autocross racer. Each team designs, builds, and tests the prototype car based on strict technical regulations, in an effort the produce the most fuel-efficient, high-performance vehicle.
OKState Racing has been responsible for incredible advances in the automotive
industry, including being the first to convert an FSAE car to run on Compress Natural Gas (CNG). This car broke 2 world records: furthest distance traveled by an FSAE car in any competition, and furthest distance traveled by an FSAE car powered by CNG. It is also the first FSAE car to be converted to run on CNG.
