Wisconsin Baja 2024 SAE Competition

Written By: Caitlin Scott



Congratulations to the Wisconsin Baja team on a great performance at their yearly Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) off-road racing competition! They spent over four days in Williamsport, PA with 106 other university teams from across North and South America.

Overall, the car did extremely well, and the team completed their goal of being top 3 in the main event, the 4-hour endurance race. Another point of pride: the team had around a 30% female representation this year. Well done, all!
