RFR Competes at 2015 SAE Michigan Following Complete Car Redesign!
Rutgers Formula Racing placed in the top 30 for Business at Formula SAE Series - Michigan, held at Michigan International Speedway. This year, RFR successfully incorporated its first ever Aero package, which includes a front and rear wing. The down force produced by these wings allows for faster cornering in dynamic events. The team also moved from a 3-cylinder to a 1-cylinder Yamaha engine to drastically reduce the weight of the car.
Welcome to the home of Rutgers Formula Racing! RFR is a student organization that brings students of all different backgrounds together to design, manufacture, and develop a business model for a Formula SAE car.
Established in 1989, Rutgers Formula Racing has grown from being a small, exclusive interest club, to one of the most
active non-profit academic organizations of Rutgers University. Our organization prides itself for its team diversity, because although a majority of our members are mechanical and electrical engineers, we attract students who study business, finance, marketing, mathematics, minerals, computer science, material science, and biomedical engineering.
We have placed in the top twenty overall at competition seven times, and continue to work toward pushing the boundaries of innovation. Throughout our history, RFR has received recognition for accomplishments including earning third place in the 2009 design semifinals and winning the 2011 Outstanding Organization of the Year Award.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their support! Without their donations of materials, expertise, and monetary contributions, our success as a team would not be possible.
