RIT Mini Baja

baja club

"R.I.T's Team Mini Baja is a student organization in which an all-terrain vehicle is designed and constructed. This collegiate design competition, sponsored by SAE, the Society of Automotive Engineers, involves over a hundred different colleges and universities competing in three nation wide events. The 2000 events will be held in Kansas, Montreal, and Milwaukee. This competition closely simulates the industrial design and development process. The main objectives for the colleges and universities are to design, fabricate, and race in a one-person all-terrain vehicle. However, in order to participate, your team's car must meet a specific criterion."
