What Fall 2022 Means to Us!
We need your help to take our next electric race car ARG23 to New Hampshire and Michigan SAE this Spring.
Cornell’s Formula SAE Team was established in 1986. For the past 36 years, we have been designing, manufacturing, and building a Formula One-style racecar. We started with one team and a dozen students, all majoring in mechanical engineering, and have grown the organization to be a 50 student-run team with 11 sub-teams and students who major in a variety of subjects from Engineering to Hospitality. As a 9 time World Champion, Cornell Racing has become synonymous with innovation and success.
Our Teamwork and Experience
The team is formed of 60 students from a variety of majors. Each student brings something unique to the team; the union between diverse skill sets and strong team work forms the core of our team. Members individually spend at least 20 hours per week designing, building, and testing the car to meet competition standards.
During the month of January, team members forego their winter breaks and return to Ithaca, New York to manufacture the car and prepare for the upcoming competitions in the spring and summer. Additionally, over the summer months, up to a quarter of the team remains on campus to plan for the following season.
Cornell Racing provides an unrivaled learning experience, that allows engineers to integrate classroom concepts with practical applications and compels students to overcome technical and collaborative challenges. The finished racecar is a testament to the team’s incredible work ethic and dedication.
With the competition mandated timeline of a brand new race car each year and the significant capital investment required, sponsorships are critical to our success.
Cornell Racing reaches out to all of our alumni through regular newsletters that prominently feature our sponsors. Our active team resume stack is distributed to sponsors to facilitate long-term professional relationships with our talented members.
Cornell Racing has been featured in magazines such as Road & Track, Winding Road, and Race Car, and has been highlighted in a Discovery Channel special. Therefore, the team and our sponsors, are actively being promoted across the United States and around the world. In addition, Cornell Racing proudly promotes all of our sponsors on our website, Instagram, and other social media platforms.
