Wisconsin Racing Formula SAE Build Timelapse

Those of you familiar with our website might also be familiar with the guys at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who we have featured on our site before. Each year they compete with universities from all over the world in the Formula SAE Collegiate Design Challenge. The object is to promote jobs and excellence in engineering by basically designing and building a race car from the ground up with the objective of making it the fastest most efficient vehicle possible.

As per the organization's website:

The concept behind Formula SAE is that a fictional manufacturing company has contracted a design team to develop a small Formula-style race car. The prototype race car is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item. The target marketing group for the race car is the non-professional weekend autocross racer. Each student team designs, builds and tests a prototype based on a series of rules whose purpose is both to ensure onsite event operations and promote clever problem solving.

This year UW-M is at it again. Their build is well underway and they've even create a youtube channel this year to follow their progress. Check out this awesome timelapse video:
