Rutgers Formula Racing strives to provide interested and committed members the ultimate, sustainable, hands-on professional environment and experience through the spirit of automotive performance handed down by Formula SAE and the Society of Automotive Engineers.
Rutgers Formula Racing recently visited JAKTOOL headquarters along with the '17 car for a BBQ event. JAKTOOL is a longtime sponsor of Rutgers Formula Racing, providing the team with invaluable service and support.
As the 2018 RFR team gets busy with design and research, several members take the RFR17 for a spin as part of our new driver training.
Rutgers Formula Racing was successful yet again at Formula North. Closing out a historical competition season, RFR placed 3rd place in Endurance, 2nd place in Efficiency, and 6th place overall. Judges and various students from around the world commented on the RFR17's remarkable smoothness, drivability, and impeccable good looks. 2017 will go down in RFR's legacy as one of the most significant years to date.

Thanks to alumni support, corporate partnerships, and the relentless hard work of several students, Rutgers Formula Racing turned heads at the FSAE competition at the Michigan International Speedway this May. Competing alongside 120 international teams, RFR experienced its greatest performance since 2012.

We are proud to announce that Nissan North America’s Northeast Region has partnered with us this 2016-2017 Formula SAE season! The Rutgers University community is honored to have a such a prestigious partner with such an extraordinary student organization!
RFR 17 design has finally frozen and the team is about to go into the production and procurement phase...but first: final exams!
There will be no website updates until around Christmas Day.
Good Luck on Final Exams, Students!
RFR is Rutgers University's Formula SAE team. In Formula SAE, university students are the race car engineers, builders, team managers, and drivers.
Last year, your donations helped us create Rutgers University’s most advanced FSAE race car: RFR 16 (pictured above). Better yet, we are preparing to create the all-new, even greater RFR 17! But between annual competition and design rule changes and an entire season of extreme wear and tear on our last car, RFR 17 requires new major components--like wheels, tires, chassis tubes, carbon fiber, and engine parts--that need to be redesigned or replenished, manufactured, and paid for.
We seek your support to help cover the remaining cost!
