Planning the California Challenge for Fall 2014

In order to support Southern California collegiate race teams we are working toward a Fall California Challenge (UCI Energy Invitational) at either the OC Great Park or the OC Fairgrounds. The target date is in the week of November 10-15, 2014, so it fits between the SoCal SAE sponsored FSAE Workshop at the end of October and the FSAE displays at the LA Auto Show at the end of November, creating a sequence of events to help local race teams. Race teams with new members can experience racing with existing 2014 race car while working on their 2015 design.

Recall 2012


Here is a rough cut of a video of the 2012 UCI Energy Invitational.

The 2012 UCI Energy Invitational was held at Adams Motorsports Park in Riverside, CA. The competition included collegiate teams from UCI, CSULA, UCLA, and Cal Poly Pomona, together with High School race teams from Tustin, Foothill, Esperanza, Pacifica, Los Alamitos and Huntington Beach High Schools as well as two inventor vehicles. The event is a time trial using $1.00 of energy to go a maximum distance in one hour.
