Baja with the Best in the World

The Penn College Baja Team is raising funds to participate in the 2018 International SAE Collegiate Design Series in Maryland and Kansas.

Baja

Outperforming over 100 other colleges and universities from around the world doesn’t happen overnight. It takes groundbreaking designs, innovative materials, and countless hours of hard work to succeed. Last year, our hard work resulted in two top five finishes in the four hour endurance race and a ninth place overall season finish. 

This year, our team will compete in two Baja SAE Collegiate Design competitions located in Maryland and Kansas. Our expectations are high this season and with your help, we can achieve our goal of placing within the top five, overall, at each race. Your donation will assist in the fabrication and purchasing of new, high quality, parts including carbon fiber drive shafts, a wireless torque-sensing system, titanium suspension and steering components and much more.  

Support our team’s innovation and growth as we continue to make the Baja car faster, lighter and an all-around better competitor in 2018.
