Penn State Racing has returned! The beginning of the 2017-2018 academic year marks a new chapter for our team. After a Summer dedicated to research and design work, we now turn our attention to the manufacturing of our 2018 vehicle. Many exciting changes are coming to this year’s car, the most significant being our transition to a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis. The new chassis aims to be lighter, safer, and more rigid than last years steel tube space frame.
Penn State Racing team had the official vehicle unveiling on April 27th during the Senior Engineering Design Showcase at the Bryce Jordan Center.
The team is ready for the SAE competition at the Michigan Speedway from May 10th to May 13th.

Updates on the competition will follow soon.
