About Anteater Racing

Anteater Racing is a student-led engineering senior design project at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). The program welcomes students of all majors and experience levels, and has a strong core of mechanical, aerospace, and electrical engineers. We build, design, and test cars for the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) collegiate design competition series annually.

About Anteater Racing’s international competitions in the SAE International Collegiate Design Series: 

Formula SAE California 2020 will host 80 student teams and their open-wheel internal combustion race cars representing universities across the world. FSAE competitions are overseen by a dedicated group of volunteers (including many industry professionals). They involve technical and safety inspections to ensure rules compliance for each system, presentations for teams to discuss their designs with industry professionals, and dynamic events, in which students race their cars for direct comparison in several performance categories: Acceleration, Skid Pad, Autocross, Endurance, and Efficiency. Each presentation and event scores points for the overall competition. Anteater Racing’s best overall finish in a FSAE competition is 19th at Formula SAE Lincoln (Nebraska). 

Baja SAE Arizona 2020 will host 100 student teams and their off-road race cars representing universities across the world. Like FSAE, Baja SAE competitions are overseen by a dedicated group of volunteers (including many industry professionals). They involve technical and safety inspections to ensure rules compliance for each system, presentations for teams to discuss their designs with industry professionals, and dynamic events, in which students race their cars for direct comparison in several performance categories for off-road vehicles: Acceleration, Hill Climb, Maneuverability, Suspension, and Endurance. Each presentation and event scores points for the overall competition.

Formula SAE Electric 2020 will host 30 student teams and their open-wheel electric plug-in race cars representing universities across the world. FSAE competitions are overseen by a dedicated group of volunteers (including many industry professionals). They involve technical and safety inspections to ensure rules compliance for each system (with more safety checks than with the internal combustion cars), presentations for teams to discuss their designs with industry professionals, and dynamic events, in which students race their cars for direct comparison in several performance categories: Acceleration, Skid Pad, Autocross, Endurance, and Efficiency. Each presentation and event scores points for the overall competition.
