Welcome to Lakehead University Formula SAE Race Car Team!

The Lakehead University Formula SAE Race Car Team was established in 2007 and has since been competing against over one hundred other university teams from around the world. Our primary goal every year is to participate in the prestigious Michigan International Speedway event, and we are able to achieve this through the generous sponsorship and donations from companies and individuals who support our mission.

Our Mission

At Lakehead University Formula SAE Race Car Team, our mission is to provide a hands-on learning experience for our team members while they work towards obtaining an engineering degree from Lakehead University.

Our Team

Our team is comprised of dedicated individuals who are passionate about motorsports and engineering. Most of our team members are pursuing a hands-on college degree and are actively involved in the Lakehead University engineering program. We believe in the importance of practical experience and teamwork, and our members come from various engineering disciplines, including mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering.

Throughout the year, our team members work collaboratively to design, build, and test a formula-style race car. This process involves various aspects of engineering, such as chassis design, powertrain development, aerodynamics, and electronics. Each team member is assigned a specific role based on their skills and interests, allowing them to gain practical knowledge in their respective areas of expertise.

Our team members not only gain technical skills but also develop essential soft skills such as project management, communication, and teamwork. These skills are crucial for success in the engineering industry and are honed through the challenges and experiences encountered during the Formula SAE competition.
