bajaThe Samuel Ginn College of Engineering will kick off the 2015 Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) racing season by hosting Baja SAE Auburn April 9-12 at the National Center for Asphalt Technology’s Pavement Test Track in Opelika, Ala. One hundred international collegiate Baja race teams are invited to register to compete in various static events including business presentation, technical inspection, design and cost, as well as dynamic events ranging from a hill climb, maneuverability course, acceleration test and suspension and traction course. The competition concludes with all teams participating in an endurance race to see which car can make the most laps in four hours on a muddy, obstacle-strewn, two-mile course.
