Rutgers Formula Racing 2019 - 2020

Who Are We?

Rutgers Formula Racing is a non-profit student-run organization that annually designs, manufactures, and competes with our very own Formula SAE class race car against over 120 other universities and technical institutes. This organization aims to supplement the university curriculum through valuable challenges and professional development opportunities for students pursuing STEM and business careers through hands-on engineering, business practices, and the entirety of the Formula SAE competition.

Building a competitive racecar requires a great deal of investment. Not only does it demand the tireless effort of our members, but it also requires a great deal of monetary support. Through the help of donations, we are able to continue the operations of training new team members that make up generations of future engineers and business professionals. Our efforts would never see reality if it weren’t for the generosity of our sponsors and our donors.

What is Formula SAE?

Formula SAE is a collegiate racing competition for engineering and business students organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International). SAE International is the world’s coalition of executives and engineers from automotive and aerospace industries.

Hundreds of universities from around the world, including Rutgers University, compete in annual Formula SAE competitions that are held all over the globe.

Rutgers Formula Racing regularly attends North America's largest competition, FSAE Michigan at MIS. We’ve also competed at Formula North in Ontario and in Lincoln, Nebraska. During each week-long competition, teams hustle for fast lap times, defend their engineering and business decisions before judges, and impress potential corporate sponsorships. Members also gain opportunities to network and interview for jobs with dream companies like Bosch, Ford, Toyota, Denso, MathWorks, Spacex and many more!    

Each of us at Rutgers Formula Racing is united by our passion for engineering and hands-on learning. Since 1989, we at Rutgers Formula Racing have prided ourselves in being able to represent our university on the international stage. RFR has made a difference and continues to make a difference in students’ professional development. By investing in Rutgers Formula Racing, you invest directly in Rutgers students.

 

Outreach and Professional Relations

The team has relationships with many professional organizations all started and maintained by team members. RFR is very proud to represent Nissan of North America as our exclusive automotive sponsor. RFR is also sponsored by Rectangle Health, Jaktool, Precision Shape Solutions, and KWG, all of whom contribute significantly to our team every year.

Rutgers Formula Racing reaches out to the on-campus community by volunteering at major athletic events and campus fairs. By displaying the car around the community, we have gained interest from students, faculty, and alumni. We have also advertised the team through social media outlets like Facebook and Instagram. Our outreach to local high schools and the New York and Philadelphia auto shows has gained the attention of prospective students to not only Rutgers Formula Racing, but to Rutgers University as a whole.

The team regularly brings the car to many amazing events throughout the year. In addition to representing Rutgers at every major recruiting event, we also attend many professional events as well. RFR consistently travels to visit the companies that support us, bringing along the car to show them how their contribution made a difference. RFR is also closely aligned with SAE, regularly exposing us to previous Formula SAE members in the industry.
