The Cal Poly San Luis Obispo chapter of SAE International. We field combustion and electric Formula SAE cars as well as a Baja SAE car.
Cal Poly Racing is the largest student chapter of SAE International in California. Over eighty active members contribute to designing, manufacturing, and testing three innovative racing vehicles. Months of hard work culminate at SAE’s Collegiate Design Series (CDS) competitions. These international competitions challenge us to apply our skills outside of the classroom as part of a project that closely imitates industry practices. Cal Poly Racing is the only California team to field vehicles in all three of the major CDS competitions: Formula SAE, Formula SAE Electric, and Baja SAE.
At the competitions, industry experts evaluate our designs for performance, innovation, and market potential. To excel in these categories, Cal Poly Racing has become more than just a team of engineers. We operate like a business, bringing together students from many disciplines in order to develop engineering, project management, finance, and marketing skills. Because of this, our members are assets from day one when they take positions in the workforce.
In order to develop student skills through this unique hands-on experience, Cal Poly Racing requires the generous support of industry partners. We seek to build mutually beneficial relationships with our partners, who support us through contribution of materials, knowledge, or services. In return, we offer partners increased brand recognition and networking opportunities with our talented student members.
