About Us

MRacing is the University of Michigan's Formula SAE team, founded in 1986. With over 25 years of experience, the engineering design team is continually pushing the envelope of vehicle design. In the summer of 2011 the team proved the value of this history by rising to #1 in the world after 6 consecutive top 10 competition finishes. With many of the same engineers still on the team, a newly formed business sector, and new exciting industry partnerships, MRacing is well-equipped to continue to succeed on the international level for the foreseeable future.

What is Formula SAE?

Formula SAE is a collegiate motorsport racing series in which students use technical innovation and advanced engineering analysis to build formula-style racecars. Teams design and build a new car each year, taking knowledge from previous years and new innovations onto the track. Fifteen competitions around the world test each team's design from every aspect with dynamic, design theory, cost, and business events. This experience in engineering gives students a strong competitive advantage after university and prepares them for strong careers in industry. International competitions also expose the team to different cultures and approaches to engineering. Every year, each of the 500+ teams is given a ranking based on the team's performance over their previous 6 competitions. Each team uses its own strategy to gain the most points with the goal of being ranked #1 in the world!
