University Wisconsin-Madison 2012 Racing Recap


DEI Sponsored University of Wisconsin-Madison Racing

I hope you had a chance to read our competition recaps this summer.  We had another successful year. With two 1st place finishes in fuel economy, a 1st place business presentation, a few additional top ten finishes, we finished 10th overall at the Michigan competition and 3rd at Lincoln.  Currently the University of Wisconsin - Madison Formula SAE team is ranked 14th on the Formula Student world rankings out of 510 teams!

This year we are aggressively restructuring our timeline in order to allow more testing time on the new car and we have made a considerable amount of progress.  Earlier in the semester we finished the fabrication of our aerodynamics package.  About two weeks ago we began fabricating the WR-213 and we've already finished the rear half of the frame.  Our goal is to have our first drive before the end of the year.

I've attached a few pictures from the WR-212 at competition, during fabrication, and in our shop.  Also you can check out our gallery at www.uwracing.com/gallery for more pictures of the past year.

I would like to thank DEI for the support to our team.  We greatly appreciate your help, the products you supply enable us to package our powerful single-cylinder turbocharged engine into a very tight compartment.

Thanks again!
