We are currently beginning the design stage for our 2013-2014 combustion and electric cars.
We will be racing at Formula Student Germany and FSAE Lincoln in Summer 2014.
2013-2014 Applications are now closed.
For the last 25 years, the University of Washington Formula Motorsports team has been disseminating information in the same way - newsletters. With the amount of interactivity in multimedia, it's time that the UW Formula team took up the task of updating our modes of communication. The UW Formula Team is proud to announce our new blog.
It will be simple, but keep people up to date in real time with what's going on with the team. We will not only post amazing photos and videos, such as the one below, but also let people know about our upcoming events and why they should participate. Well, reasons to participate other than just because racecar.
One of our more well-known events is Dawgtoberfast Autocross during which, this year, we raised over $4,000 for the team! Thanks to all the participants of the autocross and the WWSCC for making this fundraiser event possible.
We would like to sincerely all of our sponsors, friends and families for helping us earn our first ever first place overall finish! It's been an incredible year so far, and now we're looking to continue our success at Formula Student Germany at the end of July.
Day 3 update:
Results for the combustion car:
12th in acceleration (I believe 1st of the single cyls)
3rd in skidpad
6th in autocross
Finals for design and business presentation
The eCar is getting very close to passing tech (big thanks to all of the technical inspectors for volunteering their time and advice!). Hopefully we can get another eCar out there to challenge Unicamp in endurance. Regardless, it's going to be a fun day of racing tomorrow!
Day 2 update: We made design finals for cCar to cap off a great day at the track! cCar passed all inspections fairly quickly and we completed the 6 static events (results to be posted tomorrow) and even got some quick practice laps in before closing. eCar spent a few more valuable hours in tech and we're getting really close - hopefully passing inspection in the morning in time to run AutoX and Skidpad events. Only 1 other eCar has passed tech thus far - other teams seem to have found it just as challenging as we have. No word on what is going on with eCar design finals since there are so few teams still competing. Time for racing tomorrow!!
Day 1 update: cCar didn't pull a low enough tech number and ended up waiting in line all day, we're slated for 7th car to be teched in the morning. eCar did get some quality time in tech inspection and we have some things to work on for tomorrow but it went fairly well overall. It'll be a busy day trying to get teched while juggling business, cost, and design events for both cars tomorrow. We just posted a few pics from the day and will do our best to keep them coming.
We've arrived in Lincoln and are ready for an exciting week! Stay tuned for updates. More frequent updates and pictures will be posted on Facebook and Twitter (not sure why the Twitter feed on the right has died, probably won't get to fixing it until after comp).
Thanks for coming out to the unveiling! We're proud of our work and always enjoy showing everyone the cars. For those that missed it or want to relive the event, videos are posted on our Youtube Channel.
Thanks to our sponsors!
