UOIT Motorsports was founded by a group of forward thinking individuals at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in 2017. We are dedicated to researching and developing the future of automotive propulsion technologies, with the backing of our faculty and sponsors. We place value and emphasis on teamwork and efficiency as well as the art of knowledge transfer here at UOIT Motorsports.
Every year we expose new students to real life engineering experiences so that they can be better prepared for the challenges of tomorrow. We strive to keep a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, business and marketing students and expose them to fields of knowledge beyond the classrooms.
ABout Formula SAE
Formula SAE is a student design competition organized by SAE International. The goal is for students to develop a small Formula-style racecar that is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item. The racecar has to adhere to the non-professional autocross weekend racer.
Formula SAE competitions are broken down into 8 events:
Measures the car's acceleration over a 75m straight track
Measures the car's durability and reliability over a 22km race
Measures the car's maneuverability and handling over a tight sprint course with series of turns and straights
Measures the car's energy efficiency during the endurance event
Measures the car's corning ability over a figure-8 with constant radius
Evaluation of design methods used during the design, testing, integration, and validation phases of every component
Evaluates the teams business case arguing that their car is best for the racing market
Evaluates the teams ability to produce and solve problems under an efficient budget while remaining competitive
