On Friday night, the new 2015-2016 team consisting of veteran members and new recruits, stayed at the shop in the DML until the wee hours of the morning preparing for the very first drive day of the season. The 2014 and 2015 competition cars were repaired, fine tuned, and double checked for
The team departed at 9:00 am on Saturday and drove to Drumright, OK to the Central Tech Truck Driving School track, for a day of driver training. We were able to have 4 previous members and six new drivers take their turns around the track.
At 8:00 pm, the cars were loaded back onto the trailer, all the supplies returned to the truck, and a band of tired but excited FSAE students returned home after a very successful test day.

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.
