The SAE International® chapter at the University of South Florida started in 1999 under the name of USF-Society of Automotive Engineers. We began our journey in the SAE Design competitions with Baja SAE®, where we quickly became the team to watch. Following our success in Baja SAE®, the team decided to compete in Formula SAE® for the 2005 season. From then until 2009 we competed simultaneously in Baja SAE® and Formula SAE®, building one car for each competition every year. In order to continually challenge as well as better ourselves, we made the decision in 2010 to focus solely on Formula SAE®. With this decision came other improvements such as our new team name, USF Racing, and an entire management overhaul. Our new found organization and efficiency allowed us to have our most successful year to date, placing 9th overall and 2nd in Skid Pad at competition in Nebraska. This was our first top ten overall finish in a sanctioned Formula SAE® competition!
USF Racing is open to any USF student and our shop is located at the Tampa campus next to Parking and Transportation services. We are at the shop every afternoon working on the year’s design and manufacturing. We hold new member meetings throughout the year and those meetings are posted to the calendar on our website.
You do NOT have to be an engineering major to be a part of our team, we are open to all majors and there are no dues or fees to join.
