About the Team


We are a group of about 50 students from Rochester Institute of Technology. Every year we build a car from the ground up. The car is almost entirely designed, constructed, and completed by students. We annually attend up to three competitions. Our season starts with the original and largest Formula SAE competition held in Michigan. We also strive to attend an international competition every year to show our strength to the world and compete with a different set of skilled teams.

Mission Statement

The RIT Formula SAE Racing Team is dedicated to designing, fabricating, testing, developing, racing, and promoting the finest Formula SAE racer in the world. We will strive to become the most professional, respected, and prestigious team in SAE. We will provide a constructive learning environment that will strengthen new team members by giving them the best hands-on engineering experience. Through our commitment to quality both in the shop and on the track we will better ourselves and our competition. We will accomplish this through teamwork, dedication and effective communication.


We welcome students of all majors and all levels of experience. You do not have to an engineer, have grown up in a garage, or have racing experience. All we ask is for time and the will to learn. We'll take care of the rest.

All interested students should contact us at formula@rit.edu.
