What a challenge.. Gorman California was a fight the whole way through for us, but we came out with a few successes of our own. We’re thankful we had a first time California Baja SAE event, and we’re looking forward to doing even better come 2017’s Gorman event.

We had a great time out in Oregon! We received 4th place in the endurance race and 10th place overall in the competition. We are thankful for the experience we had and we’re preparing for next season!

Auburn 2015

Our team made it out to Auburn, Alabama for the first competition of the 2015 season! The first two days went smoothly with the new team tying for 6th place in Design, even in the heavy winds and rains of Alabama!

The next day, Car #108 (Sheila) made its way to the first dynamic events. First was acceleration, followed by maneuverability; running a 67 second run placing the team at 20th for the event. Next up was Hill Climb, and Suspension and Traction shortly followed. Driver Max Mitchell put down a record time over the logs, tires and stakes of S&T, posting a time of 56 seconds; placing 6th in the event!

The Endurance Race was all that was left. After a night of rain, the course was freshly muddied and prepped to take down some cars! The race started with Car #108 positioned about 30th in the pack, with a grid motocross style start. Within hours Max had moved his way up to the top 10 position! Cars broke down left and right, but Car #108 held strong finishing the race as one of the only cars not to break down during the entire race; only having to stop in the pits for fuel! Max did not find out until he had gotten out of the car when the race was over, that he had won the Endurance Race!

The new team performed excellently at their first competition of the year (for many of them it was their first competition), placing 1st in Endurance, 6th in Design, 6th in Suspension and Traction, and 4th Overall! The team will be heading to Oregon in late May for the next event where they hope to out do themselves again!
