ABOUT THE TEAM

Baja SAE is a collegiate design series sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). RIT Baja is just one of over one hundred regularly competing teams in the North American region alone. We have a long-standing record of excellence in the competition and are very proud of our achievements, being a top ten team for the last ten years. Our most recent racing season (2017-2018) continued our record of excellence, placing 1st overall as the North American champion.

We build a new off-road vehicle every year that can survive and overcome a multitude of different terrains and obstacles. During the competition we are judged on the design and performance of our vehicle through numerous events ranging from static events like cost and design, to the dynamic events like acceleration, hill climb and maneuverability. The competition culminates in a 4 hour endurance race testing the vehicles ability to sustain repeated and intense transient loadings.
