Cardinal Formula Racing
Cardinal Formula Racing provides students with a hands on opportunity to learn in and out of the classroom. Students build a car from concept to completion to compete in the Formula SAE Collegiate Competition Series in May. The Formula SAE series is one of the largest engineering competition series in the world, with nine international events and over 300 student lead teams worldwide. The SVSU team takes a multi-disciplinary approach to competition and involves engineering, accounting, and marketing students.
The Top 10 team has placed 6th in 2002, and 8th in 2005, and 1st in "acceleration" in 2008.
The team finished in 26th place out of 110 colleges and universities from around the world. SVSU finished highest among institutions without a graduate program in engineering, thanks to placing in the top 15 in acceleration, autocross, cost, presentation, and skid pad.
SVSU garners first place in the acceleration category with "50", and finishes 36th in the world.
Construction begins on the race car for 2012 in the Fall.
